I have that kind of hair that frizzes wildly out of control at the mere sight of cloud, so for me winter is always about how I can keep my hair under control and not look like I'm living in arctic conditions. This means that in any given winter month I have a number of hats for any mood (or outfit) I might be in. So much so that they have gone way past being a practical item and are now part of my daily winter uniform (even if they're not on my head you know there's one in my bag... just in case!)
This marbled paper chain christmas decoration might be one of the quickest, easiest and perhaps most wonderful festive DIY ever made! (Well by my two hands at least.) And it's a great way to use up off cuts and left over contact paper from projects like these DIY Marble Planters or these Marbled Envelopes. I think you already get how this one goes but here are the directions anyway!
Cut the marbled paper into equal sized strips. Peel off the backing paper and loop sticking one end over the other. Take another strip and peel off the backing paper before threading it through the loop. Stick the ends together to start creating the chain.
The one downside to this ease of using contact paper is that the inside of the chain links are sticky so you have to be careful when handling it. If any parts stick to each other they should be easy to pull apart. On the plus side it's really easy to stick to anything. Hang it anywhere!
Guys, life it chaotic right now. It's Christmas all over this joint - but not in a beautifully decorated way. It's more of a strewn decorations here, scattered eucalyptus leaves over there sort of festive feeling. I'm enjoying this build up to when I get to do it for real. I even got to make a mess with wrapping paper yesterday! But I still have so many ideas to share with you.
I know what you're thinking right now (or at least I think I do!) Christmas is stressful enough without the chaos of over complicated DIYs. That's why at this time of year I strive to keep things simple and make life a little easier on myself. So when I wrote this post on 5 must have supplies for an easy Christmas it got me thinking. What amazing and super doable DIY's can I actually find to do with these supplies? So I did some research and came up with this list:
