>>> time now for today's cat nap for the holidays, decking the halls with christmas projects for the entire family.
>> wreaths, christmas decorations , all you need is a drill and help from frank fontana.
>> hey, frank.
>> how are you?
>> minus the glue gun , but we do have a drill. this is perfect for the office holiday party or budding chef in the family. you're going to be making a gifted --
>> we're making something?
>> gifted oven mitt , stuff with utensils, get started, got the mitt, utensils. i thought this was appropriate.
>> you don't like the ultramodern?
>> mine is fine. gray, unattractive one.
>> unattractive? i thought that was a cool color palette . wrap it with a bow, make it fun. do it with the kids.
>> challenging too.
>> got to put it over here.
>> i didn't want it here. thank you very much.
>> look how quick and easy, inexpensive, cool gift for someone starting culinary school or moving into a new home.
>> i know none of those people.
>> you guys are closet martha stewart types, i can tell.
>> not me. not me.
>> let's move it along. look at your bow, perfect. annoying.
>> anal retentive. anal, i said it.
>> we're recycling old pop bottles and boxes. wrap it with gift wrap , customize labels, isn't this cute? make your own labels, this is great for an office party. you don't want to spend too much.
>> nobody has it to spend, you know what i mean ?
>> that's why these projects make sense. let's talk about the tea party .
>> you're italian, you go to tea parties?
>> i have an english side of my family. we have a wreath decorated with ornaments and clothes pins .
>> those are cute.
>> got one plus today. adorable clips, tea bags, then a great display for height for holiday cookies.
>> that's cute.
>> this is an old christmas place mat , get some decor again, these are just plastic clothes pins you can glue on. i didn't use a hot glue gun , but this looks cute, get a holiday tin to serve it up.
>> $10 for the whole thing?
>> everything on this table is under, like, $50. can't go wrong with it. glasses, ladies. i'm going to do this. i don't want shards to go into your eyes.
>> thank you.
>> yours look --
>> really hot when i put these on. not that you're not, i'm just saying. this is really cool project, all recycled wood. driftwood from my backyard. i was walking one day and found this awesome piece of wood, yanked it out, something you would do. this would make cool candle holders. you see stuff like this in anthropology for $200. take your drill, not going to hurt you. it will shoot out, so big careful, all right? you get enough depth -- you want to try this at all?
>> no, thanks.
>> thanks for asking.
>> deep enough for one of these tea lights in here.
>> that's perfect.
>> don't do this with children.
>> this is not a kid-friendly project, but this is. this is a different way to display holiday photos taking an old recycled frame and used an oak drawer liner. that's not even real wood. you like that, huh? twine, photos, ornaments, there you have it.
>> not that one.
>> how many times has all this been done? you have to get new twists.
>> i agree. how's that little one of yours?
>> have a great holiday with
