The Woodlands - Tuesday, December 01, 2015

Looking for a few unique ideas for holiday décor? Check out these two awesome decoration ideas that you can make yourself and display in your apartment at The Woodlands to make it look a little more festive!

Holiday Canisters


These decorative canisters are a great way to add a little something to a shelf, tabletop display, or even your dinner table! You can choose different items to put inside, using any color scheme you prefer. Additionally they are a great way to use any clear vase or canister you have lying around.

What you’ll need:

  • Clear glass canisters or vases (you can find them at the dollar store)
  • Items to put inside – Try gift bows, candy, ornaments, or anything else you like!

How to do it:

  1. All you need to do is place your items in to your canisters! See how simple and easy? Get creative and try different color combos!

Picture Frame Ornaments

Picture frame ornaments are super-easy to make and take hardly any time at all. You can find everything you need for this project at your local dollar store!

What you’ll need:

  • Mini picture frames. Make sure there is a hook on the back for hanging.
  • Holiday themed wrapping paper
  • Ribbon

How it’s done:

  1. If your frames have the part that is used to prop them up on a table, try to remove it if possible. No big deal if you can’t!
  2. Measure and cut pieces of wrapping paper to fit inside the frames you chose.
  3. “Frame” the pieces of wrapping paper.
  4. Tie a ribbon through the hook part on the back that would normally be used to hang the frame on a wall.
  5. Hang from your tree!

For just a few dollars, you can make your very own unique holiday decorations in no time. Have fun and be creative!
