DIY Christmas Hoop
To make this cute DIY, you need a thick metal wire, ribbons, artificial green leaves, green coloured streamers with sparkles, green tape, and some other decorative stuff such as paper roses, glitter power etc. Now the first thing you have to do is make a hoop with a 12-13cm radius. Then, use the green tape to wrap the entire wire. Once that is done, take the streamers and wrap it just around the lower arch of the hoop, as shown in the picture. Then pick your leaves and use the glue to attach them to the streamer and make it look fuller. Finally, use mirrors, beads, and paper roses to decorate the lower part of the Christmas hoop. Tie the ribbon around the upper arch of the hoop in a bow shape and hang it on your entry door!
DIY Snow Globe
For making this beautiful snow globe you will need, a transparent mason jar, some Christmas toys, glycerin, glitter, and some epoxy glue. Epoxy is a stronger version of glue and is waterproof. Separate the lid of the mason jar and turn it upside down simply create a small Christmas setup with Santa and a Christmas tree and some gifts using the miniature toys, on the inner side of the lid. Now use the epoxy glue to stick them firmly in their places. Next, fill in glycerin inside the mason jar just below the brink and add white glitter and silver glitter to make it look like snow. Close the lid of the jar, place it upside-down and seal the lid with a strong - transparent tape. Voila! You can also use water instead of glycerin but we suggest you use glycerin to make the Christmas effect long-lasting.
