It’s that time of year again when you break out your ornaments and make it a very merry affair. As early as October, we’ve seen holiday decorations slowly being hung everywhere we turn. Before you go crazy, shopping for every decorative item under the sun trying to show off your holiday spirit, perhaps you can consider creating some on your own. Since the season is all about family and spending quality time together, you can use D-I-Y projects as an opportunity to bond. Here are some easy to do and inexpensive ideas to create with your loved ones:
Re-purpose old ornaments by putting them in an apothecary glass jar and cover with a minimalist or fancy plate (depending on your taste) to create a glamorous centrepiece. These will complement your living space, dining area or kitchen well. With three simple items, you can capture the holiday spirit effortlessly.
Invite the holiday warmth into your home with a few candles. White medium sized candles are staples around the holidays and can be dressed up to make for a stylish coffee table or dining table centrepiece. Of course, you can go bold with red, glitter, gold or striped candles, with a variation in height and sizes. For an elegant, no-fuss, option you can try this tutorial.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so naturally, it should be a sweet celebration. Glass candy jars filled with peppermint treats, candy canes and green and red coloured chocolate add a fun and festive touch to a room. They’re pleasing to the eye and even tastier for your tummies! .
