Joyous Christmas Hacks

Standard

Decorate the dinner table during the holidays with cute Christmas trees that you can make yourself. Wengie requires you to have twine, magazine paper and clear tape. Roll the magazine paper to a cone shape, taping the edges together. Cut the base of the cone so that it’s flat. Make a small slit at the bottom of the cone. Put the twine through the small slit, wrapping the twine around the cone until you get to the top. Use a hot glue gun along the entire cone so that the twine stays in the shape of the cone. Try not to glue it onto the paper because it won’t come off. When it’s dry, take the cone off to set it up on the table. You can add decorations to the tree if you want to make it fun.

 

You’ve probably received festive socks as a gift at some point. If you don’t wear your socks, they could be used as cup warmers. Cut the sock in half, flip it inside out, and sew the end closed before you flip it back out and put it over a jar or a cup. Instead of using boring napkins, turn them into fun Christmas trees. Find the corner of the napkin with all of the loose folds. Fold the first corner up to almost the top of the napkin. Keep folding the corners in this manner until you get to the bottom. Turn the napkin over, folding the top down to create a triangle. Make a cone shape by folding the other sides. When you finish, it should look like a small tree.
