Precious DIY Fabric Card Tree

On Christmas or on New Year’s Eve people make all sorts of wishes for their beloved. Everybody expresses all the best wishes, for the others and try to send the dear ones all their love and happiness. A few years ago and perhaps even now people used to write all these wishes on Christmas cards. Nowadays the use of internet made us more practical and an e-card seems to be more convenient although I guess is not the same thing. Things have changed and people try to be more comfortable, win more time and adapt to the new challenges.

For those who are nostalgic and still have some Christmas cards at home, now it is the moment to use them and create something nice for them. It is a DIY project which refers to a DIY Fabric Card Tree which you can hang it on your door.

Joyful Kid-Made Doorbells

Winter comes with joy and Christmas holidays and everywhere you go you might hear so many beautiful carols or sounds of bells which announce the arrival of these special moments.In my country kids go from door to door and sing carols on the Christmas ‘Eve Night. In exchange they get sweets, money, apples or nuts. On the New Year’s Eve night they prepare their bells and do the same thing but this time they prepare a different type of carol which resembles more with a list of best wishes for the next year.

It is a special night when bells are heard at every step and make you feel wonderful.I guess everybody knows that wonderful carol called “Jingle Bells” but definitely not everybody has heard about these beautiful kid-made doorbells which are perfect every doorknob in your home.

This is a nice and easy DIY project which requires only a few moments of your free time and some simple materials like: an egg carton, paint, glitter, glue and yarn so that you can create some lovely doorbells. Their colorful and sparkling appearance will make your room look more attractive and joyful.

Decorative DIY Snowman

It is chilly outside and I play a lot with my little daughter inside. She is at the age when she does her first steps and I am impatient to see her when we prepare the Christmas tree. I am imagining all those sparkling decorations and funny things that she will distract her attention and how she would like to catch them all in her hands. Since we need to play a lot, I have discovered that I can do some lovely Christmas decorations just by playing with some things.

There are so many symbols of Christmas and winter and snowman is one of them. Recently I have seen an article which showed us how many things we can do using a sock and a decorative snowman was one of them. It is a really funny DIY project that even kids may do it. All the materials you need to have are: a sock, some beans or rice, some rubber band a marker or some buttons.

Now you can start by filling the sock with beans or rice, tie or use a rubber band for the first tier, and then repeat the process again and again if it is possible until you get a two or three tiered snowman. You can make its face with a marker or use some buttons or other items which can help you get a joyful face.{found on hubpages}
