3. Festive Tassel Garland

Spruce up your wall or fireplace mantel with this simple but effective holiday décor. To make the tassels, grab some colored tissue paper of your choice (aim for various shades of greens and a pop of gold or silver) and cut it into rectangular strips. Keep in mind that the length of the tassel will be half of the length of the strip. Next, assemble all your strips together and fold in half so the ends meet. Afterward, take one strip of tissue paper in the same color and wrap around the base of the tassel, leaving a loop at the top. Glue, staple, or tie off the wrapped piece of tissue paper to keep it looking polished. Now, just repeat until you have as many tassels as you desire. To complete the craft, simply string a piece of rope through the loops of your tassels and hang.

 

4. Pot of Gold Candles

Choose any glass bowl or candle holder of your choice, but make sure that there is some wiggle room between the candle and the wall of the glass. To begin, choose a green or white candle, or mix and match your candle display with both colors. Then, place the candle in the center of your glass container, leaving plenty of room around it to add in your decorations. Next, make the craft holiday appropriate by surrounding your candle with green and gold objects. From dried split peas to plastic gold coins, let your imagination run wild with the endless possibilities. Wrap the glass with a black or rainbow ribbon for a finishing touch.

 

5. Decorative Frames
