DIY Christmas Deco
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of the year again where you can turn your home into a winter wonderland!
There’s something about Christmas that makes you want to get crafty, right? This might include cutting out a few paper snowflakes or building an elaborate gingerbread house. The good news is that Kitty Bingo brings to you some DIY holiday decoration ideas. Have a glance at the following gorgeous ideas and make it happen.
Christmas Tree Yarn Gift Topper
Make a rectangular shaped box wrapped in Kraft paper with some red and green yarn. On the top centre of the box, take a strand of green yarn and put a dot of hot glue. Then stick the start of the yarn down.
On the bottom right corner, use another dot of hot glue and continue the string of yarn down. You can then stick the yarn down and cut. Repeat the process until the yarn makes a tree shape that suits you. Finally, cut out a length of red yarn and place it through the green strands to look like a wreath.
Paper Leaf Garland
Instead of dealing with pine needles on the floor, why not choose a paper garland? Simply cut out leaf shapes in several sizes from patterned paper. Of course, it has to be green. You must then fold in half longways.
Next step is to cut 10” lengths of floral wire. Fold in half and twist. To the bottom backside of each leaf, use hot glue to attach a piece of wire. Let dry. Start to twist wired leaves together to form a wreath, alternating sizes and colours. Finish by attaching pom-pom “berries” throughout the wreath.
Holiday Window Display
A combination of indoor wreaths adds a festive touch to your home. Paint selected leaves of a magnolia wreath green, white and red. Brush glue onto the tops of the white leaves once dry and dust with glitter for added sparkle.
To decorate a fluffy wreath, jazz up several card stock houses and use pins to secure in the middle. Update a boxwood wreath with various add-ons: Knot two 6" pieces of red ribbon. Follow by wiring a jingle bell to the centre. Hot-glue a long piece of wood to the back and use to push into place.
Get creative this holiday season!
