Children will love this treasure hunt idea for Advent.
For each day, write a clue to the location of a treat, roll the paper into a scroll and tie it with a ribbon, leaving one end long.
Put the scroll into a clear shatterproof ball ornament and glue the long end inside the ornament top, making the scroll hang inside.
Number the balls with stickers and cover the tops of the ornaments with ribbon.
4. Up a Wall Family Handyman
Have a sofa-size painting or other large wall accent?
For the holidays, remove it and use that wall space to hang small picture frames in the shape of a Christmas tree.
You’ll create a heartwarming family tree of memories to enjoy all season long.
5. Pallet Christmas Tree Deja Vue Designs
Take a break from the classic pallet Christmas tree by adding a little shine to your design.

This tree is made from sheets of birch plywood with stars cut out for modern Christmas tree alternatives.
Search for “plywood Christmas tree patterns” online for dozens of additional options.
