Hats

Step 1:  Attach your Command Hooks in the places you’d like to hang your hats. (Let set for 10-15 minutes.)

Step 2:  String about 2-3 feet of fishing line onto the needle. Feed the needle through the point of the Witch hat on the outside of the hat. Bring the fishing line through to the interior of the hat. DO NOT pull all the fishing line through the hat, leave it on the outside of the hat.

Step 2

Step 3:  Remove the needle and tie the fishing line around a safety pin.

Step 3

Step 4:  Use the safety pin to attach a light stick, it can be LED or the temporary kind you can find at Halloween in stores.  Just make sure it’s lightweight.

Step 4

Step 5:  Now just tie a loop in the end of the fishing line on top of the hat and hang it on the command hook.

Time to Put Away the Christmas & Holiday Decor!

So, it’s that time of year where it’s time to put away all the Christmas and Holiday decor that you spent so much time putting up in just the right spots.  Little do you know…. you CAN do this in an organizational fashion.  Here’s some tips you might not have thought of:

  1. If you don’t have one, get a Christmas Tree Bag!  These really come in handy.  They protect artificial trees from damage, dust, moisture, and most of all spiders… eek!  They can be as simple as having nifty handles or as efficient as coming equipped with rolling wheels for easy transportation.

    Simple Christmas Tree Bag. Easy Storage.

  2. Protect your Christmas Tree Ornaments.  I like to use empty egg cartons that I’ve saved.  If you haven’t saved any that’s okay.  You can grab some from people who have extras here.

    Egg cartons make for GREAT storage!

  3. Stop throwing away money and save your gift wrap, boxes, and bags for next year.  If it has a used To/From tag on it go ahead and use another tag to cover it up so you don’t miss it next year.  IMG_6015IMG_6014
  4. Put this years Christmas Cards that you received on a 1-1/2″ metal ring and save them as a memory to look at next year.  IMG_6070
  5. Use some of your extra Christmas paper to make decorative labels for your totes.  They will be easier to find next year by the Christmas design.  IMG_6041
