I don't know what all people usually like for xmas decorations, however I (and my stepmom) like christmas trees. I don't mean the giant real tree to put ornaments on, I mean miniature ones!
Here are a few of my favorites. (Not all are tutorials though.)
My stepmother has pretty tree candles, and other store bought decorations. Now that I have found all of THESE the day after Christmas, I will make sure she has more for next year!
