Grab paper and pencil, but not to aim, but to get down to work and create the most envied DIY ornaments of these holidays
WITH A PAIR OF TWEEZERS
You will not even have to leave home to buy the tweezers with which to make this colorful but simple ornament. Write on them the name of each diner with a golden marker and hook them to the napkins by adding a sprig of rosemary.
DECORATE CHRISTMAS TABLE CHRISTMAS TREES
Its time to make few Paper trees. You can paint and trim your own Christmas trees to place in the middle of the table. The Internet is full of tutorials and step by step, to make your own. If you are not a very handyman, you can also buy such already made.
Recycled paper bags are ideal for painting white snowflakes with tempera. Then fill them with pine sprigs and hang small white stars on them. Paint white soda bottles, and you will have as many candlesticks as you wish.
The latest developments in DIY are white pumpkins. Go to the greengrocer for a few and dye them with white spray. Add white flowers and candles to the composition, and you will have the last centerpiece.
Write the Christmas menu by hand with a golden marker or use a delicate computer typeface if your letter is not too pretty. Then tie a rosemary sprig with a leather cord to each napkin.
Cut two rectangles on a burlap cloth and sew them so that the cutlery fits inside. Decorate this makeshift cutlery with white lace (a secret for those who do not know how to sew: Fabric glue).
Tie with a string of natural fiber to the napkins, a cinnamon stick, and a fir twig.
Dress each chair with a large burlap bow and a checkered cloth tied with rope. Do not suffer for the ‘auctions’; these natural fibers gladly accept imperfections.
It is an original idea since it is not a usual sheet in the Christmas decor. Combine it with a pink tablecloth and touches of gold, and you will have a chicest table.
Don’t worry if the bull caught you. There’s very little left for the holidays, and you don’t even have time to go out and buy the turkey. With these simple ideas (taken from Pinterest) with which to decorate your Christmas table, you will look like you’ve razed in the shops with the latest decorating trends: white pumpkins in the center, burlap ties everywhere and all very well tied with ropes of natural fiber.
However, just go and practicing delicate writing, as many of the details will need your personal touch because a personalized and protocol table is not easily forgotten. And that’s what you want, an unforgettable Christmas!
