Nothing is worse than having an unexpected guest show up when everyone else will be opening gifts, right? I like to have a few last minute ideas I can throw together, just in case. I like these projects because they are so quick to make. My favorite is the candy cane garland. Who wouldn't want a festive gift to show off.

I love projects that can be made up quickly. Sometimes there's just not enough time in the day to make all we want. I have a few glass items with lids and I saw a great idea for using it. It won't take much and it can be used the entire winter season.
