    Default Quick Christmas Ideas

    Look for miniature pails in crafts stores. Tuck in kumquats and a sprig of red berries for a quick handmade ornament.

    Holiday ornaments in rich jewel tones become one-of-a-kind originals when touched with gold. To create gilded designs, use a permanent metallic gold marking pen to make swirls, squiggles or other decorative marks. Use a thin, gold ribbon as a hanger to set off the gold decor.

    For a nice decoration or centerpiece. Get 8 fresh or artificial pears. Use spray paint or metal leaf (from a crafts store) to gild pears. For a softer gold, brush the gilded pear with brown acrylic paint, quickly wiping off most of the paint to tone down the color but not cover it. Put in a bowl and enjoy! (Fresh pairs are not suitable for eating after they've been gilded)
