So, don't hesitate: get a bag of popcorn and add some nostalgic homemade charm to your Christmas tree this year with a DIY old-fashioned popcorn garland !

Whether you're aiming to be scary, funny ( or a combination of the two ) this cool Satyr costume from Make It & Love It is a wonderful choice! The faun is a mythological half human–half goat creature in the Greek-Roman mythology. The goat man, more commonly affiliated with the Satyrs of Greek mythology or Fauns of Roman, is a bipedal creature with the legs and tail of a goat and the head, arms and torso of a man and is often depicted with goat's horns and pointed ears. These creatures, in turn, borrowed their appearance from the god Pan of the Greek pantheon. They were a symbol of fertility, and they were also capable of guiding humans in need.
