Evergreen Christmas Decor

  • To make a snowman, drill holes into a dessert, salad and dinner plate using a ceramic drill bit and attach each with wire. Hot-glue buttons onto the plates to create the face and stitch a piece of fabric into a cone shape for the hat.

 

  • Sandwich a card between two pieces of Plexiglas cut to the size of the card. Secure the edges with metallic tape then hot-glue wire to the top for a hanger.

 

  • Decoupage black and white copies of family photographs onto round ornaments.

 

  • To make a pine cone garland, drill holes through each and string with floral wire. Alternate the cones with gold-painted craft beads for a more elegant decoration.

 

  • Place decals on a glass candleholder and apply a layer of etching compound to create a stenciled design.

 

  • Turn an antler into a candlestick by drilling directly into the antler, attaching candle cups and applying silver leaf.
