Do-it-yourself Christmas Room Decoration

Here’s some joyful DIY Christmas room decoration ideas.

Start your Christmas room decoration by working on string Christmas trees; cover a cone in cling wrap and then start by adding some pins to it so that the wool won’t slide off. Mix the wool with glue and water and start wrapping the small tree, with whatever crazy way you like. When done, let it dry and have the pins and cone removed. You can decorate the tree with white or colorful pearls. Prepare these trees in different colors and sizes and decorate your shelf with them.

Glitter Pinecones
Enhance your Christmas room decoration with those easy-to-make glittery pinecones; Start by using the silver spray paint and then the silver chunky glitter to coat the whole pinecone. You can make them in different colors, like silver, red or gold, perfect for Christmas (don’t forget to wear gloves!).
When done, pile the pinecones in a basket, and put them your shelf for a festive atmosphere.

Doily Baskets
Get a doily fabric and a small glass bowl and cover it in plastic. Mix the doily in glue and water paste and spread the doily over the bottom of the bowl. When dry, remove the doily from the glass.
They will look amazing with some Christmas balls, fluffy pom poms, tea light candles or chocolate.

Santa Hats
To complete your Christmas room decoration with santa hats, wrap a tape around the bottom of a cone (to keep that part white), then color the cone with red paint. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle red glitter on the cone, and then carefully remove the tape, adding some glue and sprinkling it with white glitter. You can then make the belt buckle with cardboard and silver glitter and spread the black ribbon through it. Attach it to the cone with a small pin and glue silver pom poms to the top and you’re ready to go!

Workaholic Husband

Workaholic Husband , Deal With It 

You are proud of his work. But he’s workaholic. 

 

While you are proud of his hard work and thankful that he has a job, but you also are a little jealous. Your workaholic husband swears that he’s not cheating on you. But for you, he’s kind of … with his job. Well, a workaholic must love his career to be able to give it too much and from his valuable time. He is totally dedicated to it. He wants to make sure things get done correctly.

A workaholic acts the same way men in affairs with women do. He takes mysterious phone calls when you are out to dinner. His phone keeps beeping with early or late morning texts. And when you are lying in bed, he secretly emails and text co-workers. He thinks you’re not looking.

Of course making a big deal out of it, won’t get you anywhere. Learn how to deal with a workaholic husband. 

To start with you need to stop getting jealous from his laptop. You know it’s the only major tool to get things done for a him. 

When it gets really tough to handle, talk about it with him. Explain to your workaholic that he needs to be around to cater to your needs. If this is missing, it would lead to insecurity and emotional void in your relationship.

But, it’s not always about you. Listen to him and try to find out why he is a workaholic. You may learn something new. Directly after that try to set limits. Slowly, help your workaholic to work a bit less. But let the limit be a sensible one. Say “no” when needed. During this you and him alone, let your workaholic unwind. Create an interesting life for both of you. In case you need to share his work problems and achievements. Show interest in goals, daily problems, but make sure it does not drag. 

Finally, accept that your workaholic partner leads this busy life. Learn how to use your alone time wisely.
