Paper Mache Christmas Decor
Christmas is only a week away, and I still have much to do around the house. The table centerpiece is not finished yet; lots of Christmas shopping, and I need to bake more cookies. In addition, there are still many DIY decors that I need to complete; If I can ask Santa for an early Christmas gift, I would ask him to provide me with more weeks to go before Christmas. I have to move faster because Christmas undeniable will come on time.
Although I desire a lavish Christmas party with exquisite decor and many gifts to offer, like a Santa Clouse, the problem is my minuscule budget won't allow it, so I find a DIY to help save money without compromising my style.
One DIY I did for the decor was using Paper mache cones; I got them from JoAnn's craft store for 50% off. Paper Mache is inexpensive and easy to work with and gives us many ways to be creative. One idea is to decorate with colorful fabrics, gems, and sequins. Although the possibilities are endless, I need to work faster, so I paint it instead; it is fast and effortless. And here are the final result:
All you need:
Paper Mache Cones and Reindeer
Your favorite color Paints (satin, metallic, and glitter)
How to do it:
Prepare the paint on any plates or small bowl; try to do two coats on every paper mache, apply the first coat, and wait until it is dry before you put the second coat. And you can do any design you wish!
