Decorating Tricks for Christmas
Over 60 Seasonal Ideas for the Festive PeriodBook - 2000
Why buy ordinary decorations, gift wraps and cards when you can handmake something truly special and personal at a fraction of the cost? Have a wonderfully magical Christmas creating more than 60 unique items that are as fun to produce as they are beautiful to look at. Grouped by completion time, all the projects take only a minimum of effort and equipment and many of the materials come from nature: leaves, fir cones, shells, and seed heads for festive trimming. One-hour wonders include sensationally simple tree decorations, glamorous giftbags, and vibrant stamped and painted gift wrap. Try decorated abalone shells and beaded velvet frames and boxes for a two-hour transformation, and feel that "three-hour thrill" crafting old-fashioned Christmas stockings and candlepots. And, don't forget morning makeovers, evening escapades, same-day sensations, and a host of ingenious ideas that will delight everyone who sees them
