Christmas DIY Decorations

It's that time now that Thanksgiving is over, time to prepare for the happiest time of the year, Christmas! 

Why spend all that money on Christmas decorations when I can show you great decoration ideas that you can make on your own!

Paper-Chain Garland

Go to nay craft store and pick out shimmery scrapbook paper and cut out strips. Staple bands to make interlocking circles and alternate colors as you wish.

Fruit Christmas Ornaments 

Oranges: Cut oranges crosswise into 3/4-inch slices.Lay on a baking sheet or aluminum foil in the oven set at the lowest temperature (around 150 degrees F). Leave them to bake for about four hours, then flip them over, checking them every hour until they seem almost dry with some moisture left so they still have an orange color Create a tiny hole in the top of each slice with a small knife, and string twine through each to hang on your tree.

Apples: When picking make sure they are small and not too heavy to hang. To hang: Take a piece of floral wire long enough to poke about one third of the way through the apple and leave enough wire to hook at the top to hang on your tree
