This post is designed to motivate you towards some fun and interesting do-it-yourself projects as well as easy and cost effective interior decorating ideas.
1. An Advent Wreath can be crafted easily and quickly, and this piece continues to spread cheer through the entire month of December. Simply take a plain wreath (or design one from a Styrofoam ring and greenery), and mount 4 candles on the perimeter. Each candle is lit every Sunday during the month of December, preferably at dinnertime where the entire family can witness the sacred event. The final candle is lit on the fourth Sunday, which is Christmas Eve this year!
4. A simple holiday platter with candles surrounded by red decorative berries makes for an attractive and practical centerpiece, as you light the candles at dinnertime.
7. Create “mini mittens” for your family and friends … another craft that children would love to help you create to get the whole family in the spirit. A simple mitten pattern could be cut out and used to cut out felt pieces, sewn together with yarn around the edges. Make several small (about 6”) mittens to be filled with candy and surprises for your guests. It’s always a good idea to have these stashed away as “interior decorating” pieces of art. Guests will assume they are part of your Holiday décor; and, of course, they will be delightfully surprised when you present it as a gift!
9. Set the mood for your guests with your best holiday drinks served in Christmas holly berry clear glasses. An entire set of holiday berry glasses complete with ice bucket can be obtained at this site for only $14.99!
10. Even your bake ware is complete with the festive touch when you use the long ceramic loaf baking pan set from Beckalar…Additionally, vintage Pyrex is also a very practical addition to your holiday entertaining… from oven to serving table to refrigerator, you can’t beat Pyrex when it comes to holiday planning.
