The holidays are just around the corner and Waypoint Real Estate Group wants to make sure you have a very merry holiday season! While the stores are overflowing with adorable holiday doo-dads and knick-knacks, have you ever considered trying to make some holiday decorations at home? Making holiday decorations at home is fun for the whole family and can also result in making memories that will last a lifetime. Here are some fun ideas to get you started.
Gobble-dee-gook Ideas for your Thanksgiving holiday
Looking to reuse all of those leaves accumulating on your front porch? Check out this really simple and beautiful tutorial for leaf lanterns that light up your table with golden fall fun. Short on leaves? That’s fine. Fake leaves from your local craft store will do just fine and have the same effect.
Create a place to share the things you are thankful for. Ask your guests to each bring a picture of someone or something that they are grateful for. During the day add the photos onto the board so that everyone can see. You could coat your board in chalkboard paint so that people can write what they are thankful for as well.
Craft a holly jolly holiday – Ideas for your winter holidays
Not the motivated type who wants to take down too many decorations between Thanksgiving and your winter holidays? Well, we have a solution for you! These simple blocks can be made with two by fours and paint and simply need to be rotated when the holidays change. You could make the alternate side themed for Hannukah, Kwanzaa or Christmas depending on what you celebrate. With a creative mind you could use more or less blocks to create a variety of sayings for a variety of holidays.
Everyone loves an edible gift! Use different colored mints and your choice of cookie cutters to make these treats for friends and family this upcoming holiday season. If you are not a mint fan this project could work well with jolly ranchers too. Find a step-by-step tutorial for this easy craft on hello-homebody.com.
Do you want to build a snowman? Florida residents might not be too invested in the snowman business, but we have some crafty alternatives. Check out this tutorial on instructables.com to find out how you can make your very own snow globe at home. You can either order a kit from Instructables or use glitter instead of “Fake Powdered Snow” to make one yourself with your own supplies.
No matter what holidays you celebrate, Waypoint Real Estate Group wishes you a very happy holiday season filled with all the love and magic that this special time of year has to offer.
