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. 🙂

A Gown or a Cocktail Dress for Prom Night

Once news about prom is announced, the first thing that teenage girls think about is what they are going to wear. The endless search for the perfect gown or dress will start and just about everyone is concerned that they should not have the same dress as another person.

One of the dilemmas that people have however is, if they should wear a gown or a cocktail dress for prom night. This actually depends on where the event will be held and what the dress code states. Most programs will state what type of clothing they would recommend to be worn for the special event. If the invitation says that girls are supposed to wear gowns, by all means wear a gown. Following the dress code is important and it will also show how much discipline you have.

Since it is prom season, finding the perfect dress or gown is easy because there are a lot available. Do remember that some of the gowns or dresses that you will purchase may be too steep for your original budget. Try to keep things simple and wearable by not accessorizing too much.
