One of the easiest ways to spruce up your Christmas decorations is by adding red ribbons to a plain white candle.
Be sure to slide the ribbon down as the candle melts to avoid a dangerous fire!
bhg.com Or Add A Pinch Of Sweetness
If you want to skip the ribbon, you could always glue mini candy canes to the perimeter of a basic red candle. But like the step above, be sure to blow out the candle when the wax begins to melt close to the candy cane!
Decorate Your Own Stockings
You can stick to the classics this Christmas with simple red and white stockings. They'll all match and you can add a personal touch to each one!

To make this breathtaking craft, you'll need 40 or so circular pieces of white felt, sewing pins (1 per piece of felt) and a blank foam wreath, which you can find at any craft store.
Fold the felt and pin the corner into the foam. You can dab a little glue where the felt and wreath connect to keep it secure.

theornamentgirl.com Wrap It Up
Wind the yarn around the bead until the whole thing is covered. Make sure to dab a little glue every so often so the yarn stays exactly where you want it to!
theornamentgirl.com Get To Gluin'
You'll want to use a little extra glue at the bottom of the styrofoam ball so the ribbon and final bead stays in place.
theornamentgirl.com Pin It In
Cut pieces of ribbon into even sections and push the sewing pin through them all. Stick the pin into the ball and arrange the ribbons quickly before the glue dries.
theornamentgirl.com The Finishing Touches
Take super glue and secure the ribbon and bead from the top. Let the whole thing dry for several minutes or until the bead won't move when touched.
