A DIY Holiday Spectacular

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2012) - As we head into the "home-stretch" before the holidays, gifts for giving, garlands for hanging and trees for trimming are on everyone's mind! Even if your holiday to-do list is longer than Santa's...there's no reason to lose your holiday cheer! Tracy Metro, ringmaster of the Domestic Circus, shares some quick and clever DIY holiday ideas to wrap up the holidays!

As family and friends gather, entertaining guests becomes very important this time of year to "set the mood" and one thing people often overlook is the proper lighting. You can instantly set a festive mood with the flick of a switch. Samsung LED Light Bulbs set the perfect ambiance for the holiday and beyond. They cast a soft white light and have a lifetime of up to 22 years, so you rarely have to change them. Plus they use less energy than traditional bulbs and pay for themselves over time. The bulbs look elegant in any room and really give your house that warm holiday glow. 

One of the easiest go-to decorating tools are VELCRO® Brand Removable hangers. These little strips can hold up to 3lbs without nails and holes in your walls -- so decorating, AND redecorating is a breeze. They cause no surface damage and leave no residue behind so you can add holiday touches throughout your house. Jazz up picture frames with festive holiday bows and use Velcro tape to hang wreaths, stocking and even gorgeous holiday cards throughout your home for festive personal touches!

Speaking of personal touches, making gifts this holiday season is not only special but so affordable. Take simple and cheap wood products, such as frames and jewelry boxes, from a craft store and make them magical with Minwax Wood Finish. Simply finish them with 1 of 24 colors and the Fast Drying Polyurethane to give it a lovely shine. A great way to personalize your holiday dinner parties is using beautiful finished frames as name plates -- just find goofy photos of your guests and put them around the table -- you've got a lovely place setting and an instant conversation piece!
