For a simple look, string a ribbon over a doorway and use clothespins to clip on holiday cards as you receive them. Or hang greenery from a wooden hanger and clip cards on the greenery as you receive them. Similarly, you can tape cards to the wall making the shape of a Christmas tree to enjoy throughout the season.
 
7.Let it roll: Create cute snowmen using rolls of toilet paper. Wrap white fabric around two rolls of toilet paper stacked on top of each other, then add kids’ scarves, hat or earmuffs. Best part of this DIY project – you can use the toilet paper when the snowmen “melt” for the season. Check out how to do this in more detail at Its Always Autumn.

Start with painting the lid, glue down the trees and/or snowmen using hot glue on the inside of the lid, fill jars with artificial snow (a little goes along way) and seal up the jar. Voila! Let it snow.
