We made it! Thanks for following our Christmas Countdown! Here’s one last idea to keep the kiddies occupied while they’re waiting for the big day to come!
Homemade Placemats for Christmas Dinner

You will need:
• Construction paper or cardstock
• Scissors
• Glue
• Pencil
• Flat objects to glue into your placemat, like pictures cut out from old cards or wrapping paper, you can use ribbon, sequins, confetti, or just markers and crayons.
• 6 Sandwich-size Zip-lock baggies
• Duct tape in any color you choose (2”masking tape will also work)

For those of you still scrambling to get some decorating done here’s a really cute, quick, and simple decorating idea from Better Homes & Gardens.

All you need are some ornaments in the same color family and some pretty candlesticks to set them on. If you use breakable ornaments you can secure them to the candlesticks with sticky tack.

It’s getting so close! Here’s another variation on the candy vase.

With this one you can use any candy, not just the sticks. What you need is a cylinder vase about 6 inches tall. Put a bud vase inside the cylinder and fill the space between the vases with whatever kind of candy you would like. Add water to the bud vase and fill it with your favorite Christmas flower!
