Last Minute Christmas Projects

Do you have all your planning and preparation for Christmas done? Got time for a home decor project before the big day? Here are some fun suggestions for you:

1. Make a Curled Paper Wreath or Paper Cone Wreath for an inside door or wall. Putting these babies outside might not be a good idea!

2. Christmas Stars. Use these as wall or window decorations/

3. Make some Decorative Candles to round out a display you have already set up, or as table decorations or last minute gifts.

4. Make some adhesive free Paper Chains. You can make these any length you like. Make them long enough to wrap around your tree or be strewn across a doorway or to decorate a wall. Children might like to join you in making paper chains too.

Whatever you are doing this week, have a great time, make some memories and don't forget to take some photos to scrap in the New Year.

Merry Christmas!
