These days, we all love a good filter —   

— whether it’s Roses on Snapchat or Early Bird on Instagram, why not let your tree in on some of that Snapchat action too? Replace the pine with a pink succulent and snowmen with glittery cats and Beyoncé. Why? Because this year was a year of glitter for you, and with these 2-D filter-themed ornaments made from JAM Glitter Wrapping Paper, you will #shineon.

1. Cover your tree in mustaches.

Cover your tree in a festoon of mustaches for branches that are also conversation pieces.  These are easy to make: print out your template on a thick card stock, and glue it onto your favorite wrapping scraps (dotted line side up).  Cut along the dotted line.   Use a threading needle or small whole punch to make an opening for your string. (A festive red and white ball of baker’s twine reminds us of candy canes!) Then add your own personal touches with wrapping in different patterns.

4. Cover your tree in cats.

These are plain cats because cats are always in season. Mix and match your cats with patterns, solids, and glitter. You won’t cut each one out perfectly — but that’s OK.  The flaws are what give each cat his pizzazz!
