Disco at Christmas

Begin by sticking gold brads into a small foam ball, until almost entirely covered. Before fully covering, use two brads to secure a 4-inch piece of ribbon. And the most creative office ornament award goes to ... you!

Use scissors to cut sticky notes in half so that both halves have a sticky side to them. Wrap the strips of sticky notes around twine a few inches apart, alternating colors as you go. Once all the strips are in place, cut a triangle out of the hanging side of the note to create a gorgeous garland!

Angelic Paper Clip

Begin by painting a butterfly clip gold. Once dry, loop a string around the clip and slide a wooden bead down the string. Tie off the string at the top, and this delicate angel ornament is ready for display!

Season’s Greetings

Brush gold-leaf adhesive around the perimeter of a shipping tag and let dry until tacky. Use a foam brush to dab gold leaf flakes onto the adhesive. Brush away excess. Write various holiday-themed sayings such as “joy,” “cheer” and “merry” to make this season bright!

Pro tip: Swap out the holiday themed words for names for an adorable gift tag alternative.

Poppin’ Pencil Star

No tree is complete without a star on top! Cut pencils in half to create smaller sizes and sharpen each pencil on both ends. Put a small bead of hot glue on one end of each pencil and stick them into a foam ball until the ball is completely covered. Top off the tree and call it a day. Your “work” here is done!
