DIY holiday decorations

Talk about cost-effective gifts and do-it-yourself presents this holiday, here’s one project that I stumble from the Internet today. The project uses only one product that you can find at home – paper bags.

table mat

Using your basic grocery store paper bag, cut the bottom out and side to create one long piece of paper. Cut the paper into place mat shapes. Use paint to add decorative elements to the paper. (We used the end of a chopstick and gold paint to make a dotted effect!) – Photo and text from here.

I’m sharing the site here for other cool projects.

Who would have thought you can turn a lowly paper bag into something creative as table mats and many more.

I hope I can do my own DIY project using toilet paper rolls. I’ve been collecting them for more than a year now wishing that someday I could create a Christmas ornament with the help of my artistic kids. 🙂

Invest in art book

drawing book

My daughter bought this drawing book a few weeks ago. She has the talent to draw but still needs a reference book like this one to enhance her drawing skills.

Drawing exercise from the book

I’ve been browsing the book and realized I could start learning how to draw. The book is packed with step-by-step instructions and basic techniques to inspire all skill levels (including my poor drawing skill hehe). We purchased the book from National Book Store.
