    • Delicate Ornament Wreath

      This intricate-looking wreath is surprisingly simple to make. Here's how:
      -- Wrap a plastic foam wreath with white or pale blue ribbon.
      -- Hot-glue glass ornaments to cover the wreath, starting with the larger balls and layering smaller ones to fill the gaps.

      Editor's Tip: Select an assortment of colors, textures, and sheens for the most interesting effect. Link TK

    • Card-Display Board

      The annual flurry of Christmas cards looks lovely displayed on this memory board. Here's how to make it:
      -- Start with an inexpensive framed bulletin board.
      -- Paint the frame, and apply a diluted wash in varying shades of blue mixed with luminescent embossing powder.
      -- Stretch quilted fabric over the cork and staple onto the back. Create a grid of ribbon attached with pins at the ends and wherever ribbons cross. Link TK

      -- At each end, tack on a length of sparkly beading (available at crafts or fabric stores) to add a dressy holiday finish. Link TK

    • Snowflake Gift Toppers

      Top holiday packages with snowflake ornaments for a festive touch in cool colors. Here's how:

      -- Cut a snowflake shape through all layers, and unfold. Press the paper flat with an iron.
      -- Brush the top with white glue and sprinkle with glittery embossing powder. Links TK
