DIY Decorating

Are you looking to update your Holiday decorations on a tight budget? Check out these 3 super easy crafts.

  • Wrap cinnamon sticks around a votive or tealight glass holder. Don't use glue or adhesive with an open flame. Many adhesives are flammable and those that aren't will melt when the candle is lit for long periods of time. I used Jute to wrap my sticks and added pieces from an old centerpiece.
  • Fill a hurricane vase with water and plastic wrap. Add another glass candle holder in the middle. The plastic wrap will look like floating ice. You can add stickers to cutouts on the outside of the hurricane vase and place a wreath around it.
  • Do you save glass jars from condiments or sauces? Remove the label and add small ornaments or bottle brush trees to the lid. Make sure it fits inside the jar before gluing. I did have to adjust the sizes of the trees. Add textured snow or snow confetti to the base of your design. Set it on a table near light strands or add a battery operated tealight inside.
You can easily update your decorations on a tight budget using things you already have on hand. These also make great gifts.
