http://minwax.tv/GiftIdeas Mark Montano, author of the Big-Ass Book of Crafts, shows you some great holiday gift and decoration ideas using Minwax products. Mark utilizes objects normally found in your house for these crafts, rather than requiring you to go to a store to buy various things.

For great holiday ornaments, you can make beautiful hanging stars using clothes pins, glitter, glue, and some Minwax Express Color Wiping Stain & Finish. First glue the clothes pins to a cardboard circle, coat everything with the Minwax Stain, and then add glitter and other gems to finish off the design.

Another great design for an ornament is to take some wire and wood veneer, which you can get at any hardware store. Cut the veneer into strips and stain with Minwax Express Color Wiping Stain & Finish. Then, string each end of the veneer strips on the wire to make a ball.

To make a nice table setting, first take an old glass jar. Wrap it in yarn and color with some white spray paint. Then, remove the yarn and add a ribbon to the jar. This makes for a great candleholder and can serve as your table's centerpiece.

For a simple holiday bracelet, first pick up a bunch of thimbles and some wire. Poke a hole through the top of the thimble and thread through some wire and make a loop. This can then easily be strung on a simple chain.

You can also link colored zip ties together to make a fun summer bracelet for your kids.
