Stock up on scissors and tape (and let’s be honest, wine) because it’s almost time to stay up all night wrapping gifts! If you’re looking to make the presents under your tree really pop this year, then go the extra mile with these ten creative gift wrap ideas. I really can’t decide which one I like best, so it looks like I’ll have to do them all…How are you wrapping your presents this year?
Even if you already have your tree up and decorated, there’s always room for one more ornament! At least in my opinion, you can never have too many decorations. And if your tree will simply topple over if you add one more thing to it, well handmade ornaments always make the perfect stocking stuffer! Below are fifteen diys that you will want to make asap. I’d love to know, which ones fit the vibe of your tree?
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to decorating for Christmas, I like to go all out; however one room I don’t really do anything with is the bathroom. That is until this year! If you’re looking to bring in a touch of decor, or just a splash of color throughout the year, just give your apothecary jars a five minute makeover. Here’s how:
Time: 5 minutes + dry time Materials: jar, spray paint, Q-tips cotton swabs and NEW Q-tips Beauty Rounds
If you’re using a jar you already own, just make sure to give it a good cleaning before painting.
Now, turn your jar upside down and spray! The idea is to let the spray paint splash up the sides, but not be a solid color. This will give a fun ombre and almost frosted feel. Let dry and then fill with Q-tips cotton swabs and Q-Tips Beauty Rounds.
The time is finally here! It’s time to decorate for Christmas, y’all! If you’re looking to go beyond the tree and give your walls some love, then you’ll absolutely want to make this ornament wall confetti. It’s fun AND completely renter friendly. Win-win my friends! Here’s how:
I used a mix of Duck® Tape and glitter tape for the ornaments. They come in a variety of patterns and colors so you can customize it to match your other holiday decor!
Start by cutting out a circle out of your cardboard. This circle cutter will allow you to adjust the size of the ornaments (mine were done on the smallest setting).
Next, cover with tape. Trim the excess with scissors. You’ll follow the same steps to make the bulb topper, just cut your cardboard in the shape of a trapezoid. And if you want to add a hook, you can either cut one out of construction paper (what I did) or use floral wire.
Add a bit of Duck® washi to the back to hang on the wall and you’re done! I chose to hang mine in the shape of a tree, but how cool would an entire wall of these look?! You could even use these to spell out a word (like Merry, X-Mas, etc) if you really wanted to be ambitious.
PS how cute is my dad’s dog?! These ornaments make the perfect backdrop for a Christmas card photo, don’t you think?
