Christmas is only a week away, and I still have so much to do around the house. The table centerpiece is not finishing yet, lots of Christmas shopping to do, and I need to bake more cookies. There are still lots of DIY decors that need to complete; If I can ask Santa for early Christmas give, I would ask him to give me more weeks to go before Christmas. Well, for sure I have to move faster because Christmas undeniable will come on time.
Although I'm dreaming of an extravagant Christmas party with splendid decor and lots of gifts to give, it just my tiny budget won't allow it, so I find a DIY help saving money without compromising my style.
One of the DIY that I did for the decor is using Paper mache cones; I got it from JoAnn craft store for 50% off. Paper Mache is inexpensive and easy to work with, and gives us many ways to be creative. Some of the ideas are to decorate with colorful fabrics, gems, and sequins. Although the possibilities are endless, I need to work faster, so I choose to paint it instead; it is fast and easy. 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!
