How is your Christmas preparation going? Does your house smell like freshly baked gingerbread and chocolate cookies? Is the Christmas tree up? Are the gifts already wrapped nicely and placed under the tree? By this time, you might have had everything in order. But in case the house hasn’t shown any sign of Christmas spirit yet, here are some suggestions to perk it up.
Christmas-decorated tins and pails
Easy, ready-made Christmas themed tins and pails will definitely get the kids excited. Especially when you put some candies and chocolates inside, yummm… not only the tins and pails make great decoration, they are also fine containers for foods and/or Christmas gifts.
DIY gift baskets and centerpieces
Got some steel buckets dusting about in the house? Make use of them by turning them into gift baskets and centerpieces as directed here. The cute Santa pails will most likely make the living room merry and bright!
Christmas gifts wrapped in newspaper
Reuse the newspaper and eliminate the need of buying gift wrappers. Newspaper and scrap paper make great wrappers and give rustic feeling to the presents. You'll also be kinder to the environment!
Do you have other unusual Christmas decoration ideas? Especially if they involve reusing and recycling the things around the house, that'll be even better! More and more people should do that in every holiday season.

Christmas is coming soon. People around the world erect their Christmas trees and decorate them as merrily as possible. These Christmas trees below are quite interesting. They are not of real trees that are cut down; instead, they are made of recycled goods. Check them out.
Book Evergreen Christmas Tree
Save the trees by building your own Christmas tree with library books, like what these young book lovers at Gleeson Library in California did.
Murano Glass Tree
This amazing Murano Glass Tree compiled of 1000 Murano glasses was installed in Venice, Italy. It's 28 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter.

Shopping Cart Tree
Anthony Schmitt was inspired to make this shopping cart tree by the 1960's aluminum tree. He made it come true in 2009 by building this tree consisting of 86 shopping carts.

Beer Bottles Christmas Tree
This Christmas tree is made of 1000 Heineken beer bottles and is placed on the road of Nanjing, Shanghai.
Recycled CD and Cassette Tape Tree
Have you got a lot of unused CD's that are just lingering around, dusting? Why not turning them around to a beautiful Christmas tree like what artist Tom Deininger did? This CD and cassette tape tree was installed in 2010 at the Chelsea Market in NYC.
They're pretty fun, aren't they? Most importantly, this act saves most trees from being chopped off for the holiday season. Build your artificial Christmas tree, whether it's made of glass bottles, plastic bottles, jars, or anything you can see and think of around you, it'll keep another tree alive for another season.

When shipping fragile items, you would want to make sure the shipped goods will be received unbroken. This is when heavy duty boxes come into great use. These boxes provide added protection to the fragile stuffs inside so that they stay safe at the receiver’s hand.

When the padded mailers are not enough to contain your gifts, you will need one of these shipping, packing and cardboard boxes. They are each designed to fit different kinds of things with different shapes, weights and vulnerabilities so that the contents stay secured and safe inside these boxes. You can also use them when you need to move from one house to another. Now let’s see what each box has to offer.
Side loading boxes are perfect for containing documents, magazines, photos and frames.
Perfect for small, lightweight products, the pye-lock tucks on the cartons allow them to be locked securely.
These are awesome to use as layering for important documents. Avoid photos or documents accidentally cut when the receiver opens the envelope. Putting these pads will prevent wrecking the real document.
The 2-piece boxes are economical and stackable. Put your documents inside and put on the removable lids to keep it clean and tidy. Prints on the exterior of the boxes make easy identification.
These boxes offer better look for your file storage. They’re white, pre-printed for identification and tabs on lid interlock through hand holes add more strength.
Fancy sending book or picture frame (with picture obviously) as Christmas gift? Ship and protect it with a corrugated bookfold.
Flat mailers are perfect to send documents, photos, artworks or reports. It’s not easy to bend or crush it and it’s lightweight too to save on postage! Alternatively, you can also use the padded mailing bags to further protect this type of content.
You’ve got to love this item. It’s super strong. It’s lightweight (great to save on postage!). It’s easy to fold! Take a look at the rich sizes of these mailers now.
CD is the Christmas gift? Send it away with this Self seal CD mailer. It’s made specifically to protect CD cases during shipping with easy pull tab opening and peel and seal closure.
Just like the above CD mailer but for DVD’s (up to 4 DVD’s in a box).
Is it a large photo print that you want to send? Or a painting? Send it with a fiberboard mailing tube. Simply roll it and snug it inside this tube.
So there are so many ways to brighten up beloved people who live far from us. A meaningful Christmas gift shipped properly is one of them.

Holiday season always makes us want to share the spirit and happiness to others both far and near. For those who cannot make it home this holiday, it’s a good idea to mail away gifts or cards to show how you care about them. If the gifts include something delicate and breakable, be sure to protect them with the right packaging. CD’s, cassettes, and other flat, breakable gifts should be securely packaged in a padded mailing bag. This way you’ll avoid having that disappointed look from your loved one for having broken gifts.
There are several models of padded mailing bags. You have the Poly Mailers with one side of the bag clear to see the contents through. There is also Bubble Lined Poly Mailers, which have bubble cushion on the inside to protect contents, and many others.

There must be a time when you feel so fed up with the so many unused plastic containers at home. Rather than throwing them away and let them fill the landfill waiting for some hundred years to degrade themselves, why not reuse them for something useful? Perhaps decorate them so that they're more pleasant-looking? Whether these are plastic buckets, once-food containers, or soda bottles, we can change them into great house decoration and containers at the same time. Read on to know how to do it.
Clean the containers
This container decorating project will involve some painting activity to make them stand out. Therefore, the containers need to be cleaned properly. Remove all labels with eco-friendly product or just use solution of baking soda (or vinegar) and water for labels that are hard to take out. This will also remove previous odors from the containers.
Paint the containers
It's time to give the containers some color. Paint or spray them with the paint of your choice and get another coat if necessary. Allow at least two hours before adding the second coat for the first one to dry.
Add some textures to the paint
You could be happy already with the painted containers by now. But you could also add more sparks onto the design. What about polka dot, striped or hand-painted textures? Simply use round sponge to make the polka dot, or draw guide lines for the striped pattern, or paint small trees, flowers or anything you like on the containers.
Let everything dry and use the containers to keep stationary, children toys, shoes, etc. You can put them on the floor or make holes on them and hang them on the wall. The kids will love them too if you choose brighter colors! Happy decorating.
