Make It: Give a dated holiday ornament a charming touch using wrapped fabric scraps. First, cut linen or cotton fabric into 24-inch-long by one-half-inch-wide strips. Next, wrap the ornaments with the fabric strips, securing each end with hot glue. Layer the scraps around each ornament until completely covered.
The simple foundation of this conference room becomes an ideal backdrop for an infusion of color and whimsy. A bold black and white striped rug pairs harmoniously with pale blue chairs. The metallic pendant lights recall Christmas ornaments set off by brilliant purple string.
Make It: Turn sheet music into pinecone ornaments by first cutting the sheets into two-inch strips with a paper trimmer. Then, use craft scissors to cut each strip into several two-by-one-half-inch pinecone scales. Next, hot-glue the scales onto two-inch foam crafting spheres, allowing the bottom edges of the scales to extend one-half inch lower than each sphere. Continue to layer the scales, one row at a time, curling the edge of each slightly upward. Once the final row of scales has been adhered to the top, add a small dollop of glue to the tip of each scale, then dust lightly with glitter. Hot-glue a knotted loop of ribbon to the top, then hang on the tree.
