DIY Holidays

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2014) -  Tracy Metro, Celebrity Lifestylist, shares some ideas on how to prepare your home for the holiday season.

While this time of year isn't really optimal for a full on home makeover, it's the perfect time for my fluff and fold makeover which are quick fixes that have huge impact. Start in the bathroom. In order to make the bathroom feel festive, swap out your regular shower curtain for a holiday inspired one. While you're at it, swap out your standard straight shower curtain rod and replace it with a curved shower curtain rod by Moen. It gives you at least 5 additional inches in the shower; plenty of elbow room to really get clean. The curtain rod is available in a variety of finishes which are sure to complement your bathroom.

While we're in the bathroom, updating your faucet is another easy tweak to change to look of the room. The Moen Oxby bathroom faucets offer a transitional style and feature a spiral water flow and high-arc spout to create a refined look in the bath. The Oxby faucet is available in two-handle centerset and widespread styles, and features Moen's Spot Resist™ Brushed Nickel finish, which helps resist fingerprints and water spots to maintain a brilliant finish.

Try making some of your own gifts and decorations for a unique touch. The folks at Dremel, the makers of the famous rotary tool, have come out with a 3D printer. You can actually make a variety of things using a Dremel 3D Idea Builder. Simply go online, download a project from, and then print it out with the Idea Builder. If you're a creative DIYer who likes to make things, or you have somebody on your list who is, this is a perfect gift for them, and it comes with a suite of ongoing inspiration, design tools and support, making it super user-friendly.

During the holidays I always have fun, tasty and above all easy snacks around for folks who pop by. This year, try a DIY popcorn bar using Pop Secret's new products. There's Double Butter for the people who like the salty, and Cinnamon Roll for those who are more of the sweet lover. The Cinnamon Roll flavor has an incredible glaze on top. On the bar, you can put out marshmallows, chocolate chips, bacon bits, and pecan pieces to create the perfect salty sweet combo.
