Bonus Simple DIYs

#1: How to keep your Christmas lights in place. When wrapping or placing a string of Christmas lights on your stair handrail, hold them in place by using a couple of zip or cable ties, and snip off the excess tail. This way, you’ll prevent the lights from moving out of place.


#2: How to make a wine glass snow globe and candle holder. Trace the mouth of a wine glass on a piece of cardboard, then cut it out, and hot glue the Santa toy at the center. Fill the glass with some fake snow or similar materials that are crystal-like, then dab some hot glue around the rim of the glass, and adhere the cardboard with Santa on it upside down so that the toy is inside the glass. Flip the glass upside down so that the toy is standing right up and the snow crystal will all over the cardboard to hide it. Grab some ribbon, then wrap it around the stem of the glass, and a bow as well. You can also place a candle at the base of the glass and light it up.
