Featured Tips
Winter DotKeep those Holiday cards! Use the graphics from the cards to decorate boxes, gift bags, wrapping paper, in a decoupage project, or to make all new cards next year. This is a great way to recycle and to keep extra special cards close to your heart.

Winter DotTransform old and scary plastic fruit by coating it with several layers of glitter. Simply paint the fruit liberally with white glue and dust with glitter. If needed, repeat until the fruit is entirely covered. This is a quick and easy way to recycle tacky decorations for a look that is very popular right now - and expensive if you buy it in the store.

Winter DotKeep ribbon untangled and dust free by storing it in very clean margarine, cottage cheese, or other plastic tubs. Make sure they are thoroughly clean and dry before loosely coiling your ribbon in the tub. Make a slit in the top of the tub that is large enough for the ribbon to slide through. When you need ribbon, just pull out as much as you need, snip it off, and you are all set! No tangles and no fussing.

Winter DotNatural pine cones from the great outdoors are great for craft projects - and free! However, lots of times they have insect infestations, lots of sticky sap, pollen, and other less-than-desireable stuff on them. To remove all of these problems, simply place the pine cones on a foil lined baking sheet and bake at 220 degrees (warm) in the oven for 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature and use as desired. For pine cones that look great for years to come, spray them with a polyurethane spray in a gloss or satin finish. For best results and weatherproofing, use several coats, making sure to dry well in between.
