I've found this makes a good base for a string/voodoo style doll. Use a square drinks coaster as a template and wrap the string fewer times for the base skeleton, then wrap the doll as you usually would.
Back Staircase Penguin snow slide! I put garland down first, then lights, then fluffy snow. The garland helps attach the snow. I sewed a piece of thread through the back of each penguin and then around the banister to hold them upright.
Inspired by another pin, we designed and built a village stand to look like a Christmas tree. Used wrapping paper as a background but I may paint it after Christmas and keep it up year round as a corner shelf unit!
