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.

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. 🙂
