Keeps them from opening early!!!! Each kid gets their own wrapping paper - none of the gifts are marked, and in order to know which gifts are theirs, they have to find a tiny piece of their wrapping paper in the bottom of their stocking. its a little last minute excitement, as they see the gifts, but don't know which belongs to who. Cute and some great Christmas traditions in this post. awesome pin

Crafts - Make It
Made this Wisconsin style and it turned out absolutely perfect. Tips: find long enough nails with decent size heads to hold string, play with string color ( many colors and sizes at craft stores), and paint and antique (or add fabric) the background for the string to pop. I will continue to make these for presents for sure!
This storage unit is being used as a bead cabinet, but could easily hold rubber stamps, pens/markers, ink pads, ribbons, paper and more. This would be easy to build. The shelf/container slides would take some time, but they would be easy enough.

DIY: Decoupage Plates - Sometimes a large, empty wall is the elephant in the room. The space can be hard to fill, yet just as awkward to leave empty. I think a collection of similar objects, such as decoupaged plates, is the perfect solution. Clear glass plates are easy to find, and I use color copies of my own hand-painted designs as the artwork to back them.
Great way to store stuffed animals! I like how the baskets are low enough so kids can have easy access to them. Very cute idea!
