"This is really cute. I like how the pom poms add a little touch of color and pep to the wreath without overwhelming the natural look of the pine cones."

"These colorful paper lanterns were originally made for Chinese New Year but will look good on the mantle all year round. There are six different free paper template designs to choose from. All are traditional Chinese patterns from the 18th century. Use the templates to make a lantern to cover an upcycled jar and lights. The jars used were those cute mini yogurt jars you get in the supermarkets. As for the tea lights, I use remote-controlled LED ones so all the lanterns can be switched on and off with just the press of one button."
