Let There be Light
To light the way to your door, use brown paper grocery bags spray-painted white then sprayed with varnish for stiffness and protection against rain and snow. Make a two-inch hole at the bottom edge of each bag, fill with a handful of exterior-use lights, threading the ends through the hole. Leave a gap of about a foot and repeat with the next bag, joining all the lights together. Plug in with an exterior-use extension cord and stand back to enjoy the effect.
Jingle All the Way
For this glittery idea use strips of mirror tied onto an embroidery hoop, or even a metal coat hanger, for the sweet sound of Christmas. Sand the edges to avoid cuts, then hang in the trees to enjoy the icy glimmer of the mirror and the delicate sound of the chimes.
