It’s time to start decorating. Christmas is closing in on us! If you’re looking to get festive, though you want to think outside the box, here are some easy DIY ideas to bring Christmas cheer into your home.

Yarn Christmas Tree

All you need for this decoration is some yarn, tape, colorful paper, scissors, and felt (though that is optional). Cut the yard into several long strips and tape them in the triangular shape of a tree onto the wall. Using some colorful paper and or felt, craft your own circular “ornaments” and tape them on. This is an easy way to craft your own Christmas tree!

Advent Calendar

Do you like counting the days to Christmas? Well, get some muslin craft bags (or you could make small pockets out of paper), decorate and number them, and then fill them up with small treats. Hang them along ribbons on the wall and there is your advent calendar counting down till Christmas day!

Sweet Centerpiece

This centerpiece is perfect for the holiday season. You’ll need red, white, silver, and green candies as well as an empty vase of some kind. You can probably see where this is going. In the vase, layer the red, white, silver, and green treats. If you would like, you can wrap a bow around the vase. There’s your colorful, delicious centerpiece!

Bottle Candles

Repurpose glass bottles for this awesome decoration! Get some thin candles, festive wrapping paper and ribbons to make some creative candle centerpieces for your home. Cover the bottle labels with a thick strip of wrapping paper, tie a bow around the bottle with a ribbon, and place the candle securely onto the bottle spout. There are your bottle candles!

Dangling Treats

For this sweet decoration, you will need some ribbons, scissors, tape, candy canes, and a wall. Simply cut the ribbons into short pieces and make a loop at the end of them where the candy canes will be hooked onto. Tape the ribbon loops onto the wall, place the candy canes into each loop, and there are your dangling treat decorations!

Cookie Garland

Cookies are practically essential when it comes to celebrating Christmas. This decoration makes use of them in an interesting way. Whip up a batch of cute gingerbread cookies (you can use any shape you desire) and make two holes, beside one another, in the yummy treat. Get a long ribbon and thread it through the holes you made in the cookies. You can keep the cookies as far apart as you would like them on the string and once you are finished, hang it in an entryway or by the fireplace.

Mason Jar Christmas Tree

Do you want to dress up a mantel or table with a small Christmas tree? Well, this Mason Jar Tree is a cute and original way to do just that! Get six like-sized mason jars and fill each with the ornaments of your choosing. You can add tinsel, greenery, anything you like. Stack the jars as a pyramid (three on the bottom, two in the middle, and one on the top), wrap a garland around the jars and place a star ornament (or a cut out) on top! There is your Mason Jar Christmas Tree!

These are all great and unique ideas that can help you bring some interesting decorations into your home to enjoy the Christmas season. I hope you’ve gathered some inspiration for your decorations this year. Happy Holidays!

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
