5. Fruit and cheese Christmas tree

6. Joy bottles

If you’re like us, you have quite a few wine bottles lying around because you’re never quite sure what to do with them. (Terrarium? Sure seems like a lot of work.) Make these festive, “joy”-ful bottles in no time at all.

7. A candy cane wreath

You’ll never go back to non-edible wreaths ever, ever again.
