Here comes the holidays!
Christmas is fast approaching. Note that Christmas carols are now played not only louder, but also more frequently. Everyone must now be gearing up and getting ready to greet each other ‘Happy Holidays’!
But that’s just one of those things we look forward to this season. Since this is the happiest time of the year, it should also be filled with wonderful moments of togetherness with our loved ones: family, friends, relatives, and everyone who is dear to us.
There is no better way for mom and dad to bond with their children than to spend hours making creative projects for the holidays.
Forget traditional decor like plastic or vinyl Christmas trees, store-bought garlands, and trinkets. You can dress up your living room with decorative things that each member has personally made. You could even turn this into an annual project that each of you would like to recreate year after year.
Stress-free party preparations
Don’t stress getting ready for the holidays. Make sure everyone, from Grandma and Grandpa to the youngest child, has a great time participating in the preparations for the holidays. Allow your imagination to create amazing crafts that will bring joy to your home.

simple christmas decoration
Here’s a nice and easy tip on how to make a simple decorative lantern: All you need are pieces of paper (colored or plain), yarn, glue, and some glitter or spray paint.
- Fold the pieces of paper, about 10 to 12 folds alternately to make a fan-shaped or accordion-style pattern.
- Glue the fans together until you make a wheel.
- Spray paint any vibrant color you like. Do you love lavender and violet? Go ahead and use your favorite color for a more elegant and chic effect.
- Cut two small quarter-sized circles and glue them to the middle of both sides of the wheel.
- Add glitter anywhere on the wheel or, if you prefer, just on the small circles.
- Put a rope on top and voila! You have created a Christmas lantern.
You can hang your lanterns in groups of different sizes to decorate a corner of your living room. You can also hang them in a row outside along with strings of Christmas lights.
