    A jolly college holiday

    If you’re feeling far from home this holiday season, but don’t want to break the bank on decorations for your dreary dorm room, there are plenty of crafty alternatives to the typical stockings and lights. Wildlife gives you a few ideas for college-themed holiday decor. Something tells us you’ll have these supplies lying around. Happy crafting!

    Gummy Garland

    Gummies > cranberries. String microwave popcorn and fruit snacks using a needle and thread. Enjoy with eyes and mouth.

    Evergreen ‘Zine

    Do something artsy with the last of your 2010 Cosmo subscription. By folding pages in a pattern easily found online, fashion yourself a holiday tree. Top with T-Swift, a Victoria’s Secret Angel or whoever it is you pray to.

    Quiz Blizzard

    We know how many papers you have flying around by this point in the semester. Put them to festive use and test your kindergarten art skills by snipping them into snowflakes. Hang from the sky with paperclip chains.

    Durex the Halls

    For super-safe holiday celebrating, make yourself a condom wreath using cardboard (may we suggest the box your beer came in?), tape and condoms. Be sure to snag the kind with foil wrappers. Packs of 100 are available at Campus Health Service for $14.99.

    The 12-ounce days of Christmas

    If you’re preparing for a party (somewhere off campus, of course!), this twist on the classic beer-amid will get your spirit flowing. Cut one can into a star shape for the top and garnish with ornamental pong balls. Choose colors based on your holiday preference. Silver and blue lend themselves to a stylish aluminum menorah.
