    There is something about simple holiday decor and it doesn’t get more simple than brown paper bag stars. They are elegant and classic and this craft is so easy to make… I will be making them every year from here on out!

    What supplies do I need to make Paper Bag Stars?

    Brown Paper Lunch Bags (7 per star)
    Hot Glue
    Scissors
    Pencil (optional)

    How to make a star out of Paper Bags?

    Place your first paper bag with the flap facing down and apply hot glue to your bag in a “T” pattern. See below image.

    Place your next paper bag on top and repeat this pattern until you have seven bags glued together.

    Using a pencil draw an arrow point at the opening of your bags and then draw on the embellishment cuts you want to make on the side/middle of your bag.

    Last week I shared a DIY Tabletop Christmas Tree, 3 different ways and today I’m back with one more way to bring some festive cheer to your home!

    What supplies do I need to make a Modern Jingle Bell Tree pot?

    • Metal pail (make sure it fits your tree)
    • Tabletop Christmas Tree
    • Miniature Jingle Bells of various sizes (1/2″ and 1/4″)
    • Hot Glue
    • Washi Tape

    How do I make a Modern Jingle Bell pot for my tabletop tree?

    Start by sorting your jingle bells into size categories. This will really help speed up the process when you begin to glue the bells on.

    Starting with your largest jingle bells at the bottom of your pot, slowly begin to glue the bells in a straight line. Create three lines of bells, then add a piece of washi tape next.

    Everyone loves the festive look of a Christmas tree in their home, but sometimes you may not have the space or perhaps you just want a smaller tree to help decorate a dull corner.

    Tabletop Christmas trees are the perfection solution for those situations! I feel in love with these two options. This 19″ Pine tree has the most perfect metal bucket. And I also love this 26″ Flocked tree option, too.

    I love being able to decorate both the tree AND the metal pail that your tree comes in! You can check out the supplies I used for my three trees at Oriental Trading’s FUN365 site.
