With the wintry chill creeping in we could all use a bit more warmth. That's why we enlisted DIY queen withwendy to come up with a couple of quick and cozy solutions that are so simple, you've still got time to make them for the holidays. Check out the video below to see how to make these extra easy projects, then scroll down for the full list of materials. Happy holidays!

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 small jewelry bags
  • 1 cup of rice
  • Sewing needle and thread
  • 2 pairs of indoor slippers (be sure one pair can fit inside the other)
  • Twine
  • 1 hoop
  • Battery-powered string lights
  • Greenery from the grocery store

Warning: To avoid overheating the rice bags, start with one minute in the microwave and adjust only as needed.
