Set the scene for the holidays with this 2-foot-long wall hanging. Cheery cardinals are center stage, while paper snowflakes glued to the back of the banner add wintry shadows.

Cute Forest Friends

Felt and glue transform plastic containers and corks into a winter wonderland, with cozy cottages and woodland animals that double as finger puppets. Set tea lights inside the larger cottage to cast a pretty snowflake shadow on the roof.

Adorable Elves

Turn inexpensive papier-mâché boxes and cones into an eye-catching place to store wrapped holiday treats. Even more fun: the elves? pupils can be repositioned, giving them a host of changeable expressions.

A Candy Castle Felt Board

The beauty of this castle (aside from its looks!) is that it's meant to be played with. The boxes and towers (made from recycled containers and store-bought papier-mâché pieces) can be endlessly stacked and redecorated with the movable candy pieces.
