From DIY snow globes to tasty gingerbread garlands, we show you all the decorating tips to make the holidays a little easier and more chic this year!
DIY snow globe
What you will need: ornament, Mason Jar with lid, clear glue, hot water, glitter
Instructions: First, glue the ornament to the bottom of the mason jar lid (we recommend hot glue or crazy glue). Then add a little clear glue, then lukewarm water and glitter to the mason jar. Screw the lid (with the ornament upside down) firmly onto the jar. Turn it over and shake it.
Hang lights on a brick wall
What you will need:fairy lights, hot glue gun
Instructions: Use a hot glue gun to attach string lights to a brick wall. The glue won’t damage the wall, and when you’re done with the lights, you can just peel them off.
DIY cookie garland
What you will need: Gingerbread cookie dough, cookie cutter, straw, string or heavy wire
Instructions: Cut out gingerbread men in the cookie dough and use a straw to make two holes side by side on the torso. Bake cookies. Once cool, run some string through the holes and hang your garland.
Reuse pumpkins as snowmen
What you will need: Pumpkins with small stems, white paint, paintbrush, small scarf, hat, eye and nose buttons, hot glue gun
Instructions: Paint the pumpkins with white paint. Once they have dried, stack them on top of each other. (You can use a little hot glue to hold them together if needed.) Decorate like real snowmen with scarves and hats. Glue on the felt eyes and nose.
