Snow globes! One perfect for kids and the other for stylish christmas-ness. For the left, paint the lid of your jar, attach a wintery scene to the inside of the lid, fill the jar with faux snow or even water and glitter, attach the lid, give it a shake and voila! For the stemware globes attach the scene to a piece of card and fill the glass with faux snow, put them together and tip upside down and your done! Put a candle on the base of the glass for extra elegance.

Baubles, even if you don’t have an actual tree to hang them on you can always find them a home. Hang them from the corner of picture frames or lights. Here are some DIYs use glue and string and a balloon to create hollow string ornaments. Cut up CDs and stick them to baubles to create fun reflective balls. Use a foam ball, sequins and pins to create bright coloured sequin balls.

Here are some little alternatives to christmas trees this winter. If you’ve got enough, use books arranged in the shape of a tree, wrap with fairy lights and put something on top, you’ve got a festive and easy display. If you want something smaller use paper or pages in different sizes on a stick to create the little paper trees seen in picture two above. A little more effort for the third one, use green baubles and wire and arrange them to the shape of a tree. And finally, if your short of space a wall display is easy and reasonably quick to make.

We’ll put some more ideas up soon!
