how to: make a snowball wreath

Supplies:
1. Styrofoam ring—ours measured about 24” in diameter, almost 3” wide and 2” thick
2. ornaments
3. hot glue gun and glue sticks
4. ribbon for hanging

Directions:
1. Hot glue fuzzy snowballs one at a time on to the Styrofoam ring—start with the 6” first, then use the 4” to fill in the gaps.

2. Place shiny mobile, starburst, and wire ornaments as desired.

3. To hang, loop a ribbon as desired.

how to: save a tree

Repurpose a tall ladder—and save a tree!

Supplies:
1. wood ladder
2. light strands
3. ornaments

Directions:
1. It’s going to create drama, so position the ladder where it can be the center of attention.

2. Test light strands then weave them around and through the ladder’s steps and sides.

3. Hang ornaments and top as desired—careful not to overweight any one strand of lights or throw off the ladder’s balance.

hint: for safety reasons, think twice about your roommates—cats, small children—before installing.

Hanukkah or Chanukah?

Known as the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah is observed by lighting a Menorah which holds 9 candles. One for each night of the holiday, and an extra light called a shamash—meaning guard or servant. The shamash is traditionally placed higher than the others and is lit each night since it’s used to light all the other candles.

Mark your calenders—Hanukkah begins at sunset December 11th.

Chag Sameach!

Thanks to todd, store designer west hollywood, for photos of their windows which included a Menorah made of blok crystal candleholders.
