Christmas Decor for Cheap

Welcome to my blog, i will be talking about cheap ways to have fun with the kids on those cold days, and making Christmas decorations for the house. Please feel free to leave any questions or comments below and subscribe to stay in touch while keeping up with my blogs!
      Note: All of the supplies i use can be purchased at your local arts & crafts store.

First is one of my personal favorites, The Christmas Tree. All you will need is: 1 piece of green felt paper, 1 piece of black felt paper, a glue gun or liquid glue, Glitter , And scissors 

Next you will need to cut out a Christmas tree shape out of the green felt paper ( always save your scrap felt material ). Then take your glue and put a generous amount on one side off the green felt and then apply it right in the center of the black felt. Take your glitter and string it across the tree to make it look like Christmas lights. After this process you can decorate your tree however you imagine. I put a picture of my 10 year old nephews tree he finished last week. Please scroll down for more easy decorations

Next were going to do Christmas Pine Cones!! One of my personal favorites, There super easy. All you need is a pine cone, glitter glue or paint, and paint brushes.

All you have to do is put your glitter glue where you want it on your pine cone and take the paint brush to smear it in. If you don't have any glitter glue but you DO have regular glitter and regular glue. Just put the glue on each one of the pine cone stems and then sprinkle your glitter and let dry. Hope you enjoy!

I'm sure you you have seen this next one plenty of times before and always wondered how they did it. ( unfortunately i don't have pre pictures for this one ). Its called the snow flack. All you'll need is: A pair of scissors, And a coffee filter.
First you will fold the coffee filter in half going long ways, Then fold it again in half so two of the corners match, Then cut the tip off of the point you will have. Then continue to cut little holes all the way around the rest of the filter, But cut the wholes in a V shape. Open it up when done and your finished!
