To bring more of a whimsical look to your gifts, create a gingerbread house out of a to-go box. Use decorative snow texture to create a piping on your gingerbread house. Apply red hots or candy canes to make it look more like Christmas.
Take a plain brown box and use decorative snow texture to create a Winter Wonderland atop your gift box. Once the texture is dry use a hot glue gun to apply your deer and trees. Place a decorative ribbon around the sides to create a more put together look.
To make an outdoor living area—porch, patio, balcony—feel more like a “room,” gather furnishings on an indoor/outdoor area rug. The color and pattern will add a decorative element underfoot, and the durable material will stand up to rain, wind, snow, and spilled cocktails.
Turn this season's gingerbread masterpiece into a chic centerpiece for your holiday table. Let the kids help decorate it with candies and printable party circles, then set it in coconut "snow" atop a cake stand.
There’s plenty of room for evergreens of the all-natural variety in your decorating. Sometimes, it’s fun to add a little modern glamour, courtesy of décor covered in sparkling faux-snow. Add even more shimmer and shine with pearlescent baubles in blue or silver.
Snow covered trees, the crisp winter air, firewood crackling in the fire place. If that sounds like your perfect Christmas night, then consider decorating your tree with a woodland theme. Natural elements, such as DIY wood burned ornaments and handmade wooden garland, are right at home next to plaid ribbon and burlap texture.
“Select a venue that already dresses up for the holidays," Zazueta adds, "and work their decorations into your overall design. Think outside of the box and, instead of traditional lighted trees, opt for more creative ways of embracing the season, like a snow machine, perhaps, or a candy cane-inspired signature cocktail.” Floral design: Blooming Gallery.
These Rudolph-inspired cake pops are sure to delight your little guests. To make, form balls of any baked cake mixture with your hands and chill for about 1 hour, then insert a lollipop stick into each ball and dip in melted chocolate. Chill until set, then decorate with marshmallows, cherries and pretzels. To finish off, insert a striped straw into each stick and decorate with a piece of ribbon. Display them upright in a white container filled with a block of floral foam. Top the container with fake snow and a printable candy jar label.
