A fancy centerpiece at a holiday party is like serving ice cream with the traditional pie. Everyone has a Christmas tree, lights, maybe even a wreath, but not everyone has a centerpiece. The best part is you can box it up for next year and impress annually.

This blogger made the garland from Christmas cards she had never sent. Basically any thick, colorful paper is a great option. What about those useless card advertisements you throw right into your recycling bin once a week? Try this DIY with your junk mail, and then use the project as a conversation starter at your holiday party.

The best part about this project is, you don’t have to get out your sewing machine. You can affix the entire thing with just a hot glue gun. (Just don’t accidentally glue your fingers together while watching the little girl sing the final song in Love Actually.)

For people with a lot of space, there’s usually a piano top or a long, hallway-length counter in the dining room to store Christmas cards. For the rest of us, we need to get creative. This is a fun way to display your holiday mail, that could later be reused for photos or notes!

The first step to this project is finding the perfect wood to become your new candle holders. Make sure you start chopping the wood outside, because there could be insects hiding out in the logs. Once you have the candle holders made, keep them around all year and switch out the color of candle based on the season!
