Tip #1: Use hangers to make an easy snowflake

Adhere 2 hangers together making sure they are facing each other, then secure them with either tape or hot glue, and repeat to create more sets. Hot glue or tape the sets together to make a whole piece of snowflake and then hang it anywhere in your house.


Tip #2: Paper Seed Gift Idea

Blend together scrap paper, seeds, and water until well combined, then strain it to remove all of the excess water, and transfer it to a baking sheet or tray. Spread and flatten them out, then lay a microfiber towel or cloth on top, and press it down to absorb all of the moisture. Let it dry completely and use the paper to decorate however you want.

Tip #3: Easy Way To Decorate Candle

Grab a printed napkin, then remove the backing paper, and lay it down on a flat surface. Next lay a candle on top of the napkin, then roll it over until completely wrapped, and heat it up with a hair dryer. Let the wax melt and fuse with the paper, then let it dry and use it as you normally would, or give it as a gift.

Tip #4: Stuffed Gingerbread man

If you have some old or tattered gloves that have some holes in them, then cut them out as shown in the video, and sew the pinky finger side close. Stuff it with Poly-fil fiberfill or any stuffing you want to use and sew the hole close. Hot glue the bead eyes, then use puffy paint to draw the mouth and add decorations using buttons and Ric Rac elastic.

Tip #5: Recycled Christmas Tree Ornament

Wrap a ribbon around the neck of the bulb, then cut out a round piece of construction paper with a hole at the center, and insert it at the top of the bulb so that it looks like a hat. Draw the face of a snowman using some marker pens, then adhere the looped jute twine at the top using hot glue, and hang it on your tree.
