For many people preparing for the Christmas Holiday started long ago. The shopping, the baking, and most of the cooking are all done and even the presents wrapped and ready to go. For others it starts now right before the Holiday. We searched for some easy to do projects that will make your house glow with the Christmas Spirit and no one will know that it was done in no time!

Candy Cane Vase

After spreading out a nice table cloth on your table you like to add some accessories. Here is a super easy festive DIY candy cane vase from Better Homes and Gardens. The nice thing about it is that you can use a plain vase you have lying around the house,  an empty pickle jar, perhaps an empty can from cooking, or empty baby jars if you would like to make mini vases. You can make one big vase for the center of the table or a few little ones. Use a rubber band to hold the candy canes in place and then tie a pretty bow to cover it up! Here is the link for the candy cane vases:  http://www.stylisheve.com/stylish-eve-diy-holiday-edition-presents-candy-cane-vases/

In keeping with the candy cane theme, roll up your pretty cloth napkins and tie with some ribbon. Then stick in a candy cane. Your table will look pretty and your candy cane vase will be intact from people wanting to take some candy from it!

Christmas Napkin Rings

Decorate your home with a wreaths made out of green clothespins. Clip onto some round red wire, tie it with red ribbon and hang up it up. Add some pretty family photos or Christmas cards. If there are children in the home they can draw some hand prints and can paint them or if you don’t want a mess have them draw hands on green cardboard and then cut them out. Paste onto something round (maybe a paper plate) and they’ll be delighted with their homemade wreath masterpiece.
