Second: how to systematically decorate with Christmas plush toys

Christmas trees and stuffed animals are relatively large, so in order not to interfere with walking and living, take some time to assess the available space in your living room before you start setting up. This will determine the number and size of stuffed animals you can use.

B. Choosing the right size stuffed animals for decoration

After evaluating the space, we have a general idea of the available space. After that, you can choose the size of stuffed animals you need, let's take Santa Claus plush toys as an example: the size of 15cm, 25cm, 35cm, 55cm, 65cm, 85cm, 1m, 1.5m. If the space next to the Christmas tree is enough, we can buy a 1.5m Santa Claus stuffed animals, placed next to the Christmas tree, so that the scene is arranged is very vivid and personalized.

Third: the placement of Christmas plushies

1. Take the Christmas tree in the living room as the center and adopt the strategy of focusing on the arrangement.

Christmas tree is one of the must-buy things when the festival comes, and we usually place it in the living room.
When we decorate the tree, we can hang some 10-15cm Santa Claus, snowman, reindeer and other styles of small stuffed animals. If the location of your living room is sufficiently large in the Christmas tree can be placed next to a huge 1.5m Santa Claus, when friends come to visit, Santa Claus to create a festive atmosphere will make your friends feel shocked. If it is a small living room, you can put a few small size and then with some reindeer, penguins, the effect will also be good Oh!

Also you can decorate your fireplace with stuffed animals
Put some stuffed animals on the fireplace, such as snowman, Christmas stockings, reindeer or Christmas penguins, you can put these stuffed animals on the edge of the fireplace or hang them above the fireplace to make the whole room more festive.

2. Stuffed animals in other areas

The sofa in the small living room is suitable to put a 65cm or 85cm sitting Santa Claus, play a little imagination, Santa accompanied you and your family sitting on the sofa to watch TV is such a cozy scene.

Our living room may have Christmas bunting, posters, and other decorations. In order to increase the festive fun, you have to consider how to cleverly match the plush toys with these decorations. For example, hang a plush toy Santa Claus pendant with suction cups on a Christmas poster. Have Santa sit on the Christmas style rug you just shopped for, these should be decided how to work depending on your home.
