Chocolate Candy Ornament

diy_chocolate_christmas_ball_ornament

Making a Chocolate Candy Ornament is one thing that should make your holiday a bit more tasteful. Even though this DIY project is not edible, it will still look awesome hanging from the window or even in the Christmas tree. The process is fairly easy but you have to pay attention to the instructions written here.

• glass ball ornaments;
• hot glue gun;
• no.2 pencils;
• chocolate brown paint;
• Mod Podge;
• glitter;
• little red crafty berries and plastic peppermint sticks;
• a ribbon and bow for extra decoration;

First, take a box of glass ball ornaments. You can even take a box of some you think are outdated and want to give them a fresh new look. The next step is to remove the top metal of the globe and insert a stick (or a pencil with the eraser side down) in it to hold it in place. Now take the glue gun and pour along the top, letting it run smoothly around the entire globe in order to get a shape like the one in the images.

Leave them to cool. Now find the perfect shade of brown that looks like chocolate and paint the whole globe. When it has dried enough, use Mod Podge to cover only the `melted` area and sprinkle some sugar looking glitter on it. Continue decorating by crushing little red crafty berries and plastic peppermint sticks for the top of your chocolate ornament. You do this in a random pattern with the help of some glue. Finish by adding a little ribbon string and bow. Most delicious!

Holiday Wreath Made of Christmas Globes

Holiday Garland Made Out Of Christmas Globes

Decorating your home for the holidays is not just another fun activity, but also an opportunity to impress everybody with your sense for style and design. This is your chance to show your friends that you posses a creative mind and some crafty hands. To make this Christmas garland, you will need:

• a long piece of wire string;
• hot-glue gun;
• a bunch of colorful globes;
• a big decorating bow;

The first step is to fashion the string of wire into a hanger like shape, to the dimension you want the garland to be. Then, take out every metal top of the globes and fill them with glue and attach them back to the ornaments. By doing so, you ensure they won’t fall from the garland and embarrass you in front of your guests. Once you’ve done with the glue, put the string of wire through every globe (you have to unfold the hanger shape from before for this). Once you consider there are enough globes, tie the wire back into the shape from the beginning of the tutorial. To cover the string entirely, glue a big bow at the top side of the hanger and tie the bottom of the bow through the garland, just like in the image provided. Have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Tree Snowman

diy-christmas-tree-snowman

How cute is this????

Combining some Christmas winter activities doubles the fun and makes the whole experience a lot more memorable. Try to mix decorating a Christmas tree with making a snowman. `How` you ask? Simple and creative, after reading this few steps, you will make your holiday a bit unique. Here are the materials needed:

• white artificial Christmas tree;
• a huge matte white 12-inch Christmas ball;
• a marker;
• a couple of 30 inches silver glittered sprays;
• 3 black glitter Christmas ornaments;

Start with drawing eyes, nose and a mouth on the white 12-inch ball, and then set up the tree and place it on top. Like in an ordinary snowman, make his `coat` buttons out of the 3 black ornaments. Align them with the `face` and simply place them in a nice row downward. Next, add the couple of branch sprays where the snowman’s arms should be, about halfway up the tree. You should stick them in the tree deep enough to remain in position and also point outward. In order to finish your one-of-a-kind project, decorate with some creativity. Watch the picture and feel free to copy the design. An elegant hat, a cute scarf, some black boots, and a shovel will make the Christmas Tree Snowman look more natural. Top up with some lights and … it’s alive! Careful not to overcrowd the tree and your entire year will have a wonderful piece of winter theme decoration in the living room.

Adult Gummy Bears

ADULT GUMMY BEARS

HOW TO:
Put your Gummy Bears in a container with a lid.

Submerge them in your Alcohol of choice (vodka, tequila etc).
****Some have used Whipped Cream Vodka****
Cover and put in the fridge for at least 24 hours
to soak up the liquid. It is amazing that the gummy bears just absorb the
liquid; the more liquid you add the more they absorb.
The gummy bears just grow, becoming a delicious adult treat!
