Christmas Boot Stocking with Gifts
Turn a plastic bottle into a standing stocking and stuff with small pine branches, cinnamon sticks and one present. You can place it by the front door to serve as a cute, but not over-the-top, holiday welcome for guests. You’ll need fabric like scraps and felt, embellishments like ribbons and ornaments, sewing supplies such as scissors, needle and thread, a ruler etc. and a hot-glue gun. Check out all the instructions to DIY here.
Christmas Table Place Setting
Rather than going all-out with your tablescape, keep things minimal but equally spirited with chic table place settings that don’t make for a cluttered table with all the bells and whistles. Often, it’s the little things that make the holidays memorable. Here is a simple, inexpensive (and kid friendly) DIY photo holiday project.
