Sparkly Hanging Baubles

They can give any Christmas tree or room a winter vibe, they look like floating snow bubbles. You start by blowing a balloon to whatever size you want your bauble. Next soak the string in the glue and water mixture and start wrapping the balloon with it. Allow the string to harden in place to take the form of the balloon, once it does pop the balloon and finish it off by sprinkling some glitters on it.
Christmas Book Tree
If you are a bookworm and have tons of books just lying around the house, then don’t bother buying a tree this Christmas. Take all those books and start stacking, there’s no one way to stack these books you can put a unique twist on your own book tree. The basic step is by laying down a circular foundation of books that is very spaced out from each other. The second layer of books will be set on top of the gaps of the first layer and spaced with a narrower gap. Repeat this until you get a cone shape and wrap the tree with LED lights. Don’t forget to add your own start on top.
Popsicle Stick Snowflakes
This is as easy as it gets, all you need are popsicle sticks, glue and your imagination. These snowflakes are simple yet can really pop when put on plain walls or on the windows. It’s a great touch and the best part is that it goes with any other decorations you put up. You have total control on how you want to design it, how big, what pattern or color so go crazy.
Cinnamon Vanilla Candle
Nothing says Christmas like the scent of cinnamon and vanilla in the air. Simply take a vanilla scented candle and wrap an elastic band around it. Insert cinnamon sticks into the band until the whole candle is covered without any gaps. Cover the elastic band with twine by wrapping it around at least 5 times over. Finish it off with a bow over the knot and let the aroma of the cinnamon and vanilla fill the room.
Incorporate these few and simple decorations around the house and impress your guests with your artistic skills. You will truly set yourself apart from homes using conventional Christmas decorations.
