    • Straw Stars

      Create these festive stars using paper straws to decorate your table, tree, or gifts. Cut the top one-third off of six paper straws to create six short pieces and six long pieces. Bend the long pieces in half, forming V shapes. Hot-glue a short piece in the center of each V, forming W shapes. Lay the straws in a circle, folded ends together, to form a star. Cut two circles from cardstock and glue together. Hot-glue the circles to the center of the star. If desired, add a ribbon hanging loop.

    • Glitter Vase

      Transform a simple glass vase into a glitzy centerpiece. Dilute glue with water and brush onto the outside of a vase. Add clear glitter all over; let dry. Brush on more glue to the lower half of the vase, add medium blue glitter, and let dry. Repeat with dark blue glitter at the bottom of the vase. Seal with a coat of aerosol hair spray.
