Paper Snowflakes

Bring the beauty of falling snow into your apartment without the cold by hanging up some paper snowflakes. Put them on the widows or hang them from the ceiling or doorways with some clear fishing line and tape. Instructables has step-by-step directions with pictures to help you make the perfect paper snowflakes. Just like real snowflakes, each of your paper ones will be completely unique. 

Snow Globe Terrariums 

Turn a clear jar or vase into a wintery terrarium that will impress your holiday guests. Use something white, like white cotton, salt, or styrofoam, for the snow. Add figurines of wintery houses, children sledding, and pine trees on top of the snow and place mini strings of holiday lights throughout the snow to make the scene glow!
