You know what’s more awesome than awesome Christmas tree ornaments? Ornaments that you made yourself! And this one is just too cute to pass up. It’s a tiny Christmas tree inside a light bulb, c’mon!

9. Virtual Fireplace
I’m a sucker for a nice virtual fireplace, as it still adds to the mood and is super simple to do. But when I saw this idea, it instantly made me laugh and I’m sure it will do the same for your guests.
