Undeniable fact: one of the best parts of the holidays is getting to put up decorations. It's the one time of year where it's acceptable to transform any and every normal surface into a gilded, tinsellated, sparkly winter wonderland! And while some people go for the ~classy~ holiday look (you know, the ones inspired by Pinterest Boards with streamlined color palettes that somehow incorporate Mason jars...), here at TeenNick we like to think of holiday decorating as an excuse to incite a full-on color EXPLOSION.
Over the next couple of weeks, we're going to be adding custom decorations to our very special TeenNick Holiday Tree. Not only will we document the process, but we'll include how-to guides for each craft so you can decorate your own festive fir!
Our first tree decoration: a multi-colored felt garland. This craft is definitely easiest with a group, so gather your friends and get in the SPIRIT!
1. Gather your materials. For this project, you'll need different colored felt (the more, the better!), scissors, and some black yarn.
2. Cut the felt into small rectangular pieces. Each piece should be roughly 3 inches tall and 1/2 inch wide.
3. Cut black string into twelve 24-inch pieces. Use the string to tie a knot around the middle of each felt piece. Leave about 1/2 inch space in between each piece. Make sure you order the colors so they don't repeat, and leave enough string at the end to eventually tie each piece together.
4. Take two full strings and wrap them around each other to make the garland full.
5. Finally, tie each large piece together to make the garland long!
VOILA! What a merry beaut. (And to think we've only just begun...)
Check in with us next week for our second phase of decorations! And while you're getting crafty, be sure to check out TeenNick's Best Holidays Ever! For the next three Saturdays at 1pm ET, we're going to be marathoning special holiday episodes of your favorite TeenNick shows. This weekend we start with Zoey 101, followed by Victorious and Big Time Rush!

Well, the holidays are here, and while we'd like to be all comfort and joy-ish and nothing you dismay-y about it, there IS a little something we dismay. In fact, it's dismaying us a LOT.
Gift-giving is kind of…a pain. What do we get the person who has everything? And even more importantly, what do you give when you're super broke? Or super cheap.
Problem sooooo solved! Get that special (or not-so-special) someone on your list an on-air shout-out! (And did we mention it's free?) Mixtape Monday is back, and now's your chance to give '90s Nick fans a chance to hear their names on TV when you dedicate a favorite '90s Nick clip in their honor.
It's easy � just check out the featured episodes below. Tweet us a Vine or InstaVid of you showing your love for or dedicating a particular '90s fave, include #Nick90sParty, and watch for it on-air! Our last installment of Mixtape Monday featured some awesome vids; check them out here for inspiration!
Just pick one of the clips below and tweet us your Vine or Instavid showing your love for your friend/ex/frenemy/cousin/sibling using #90sNickHoliday. We'll be airing these sweet and generous (and did we mention free?) video dedications on TeenNick's special holiday Mixtape Monday, December 16th, between midnight and 4am ET!
Rugrats: "A Rugrats Kwanzaa"
CatDog: "A Very Merry CatDog Christmas"

I couldn't decide if you'd rather see a new photo of Jake using a hammer or one of Eli looking thoughtful, so I did the only sensible thing -- I posted both.
Hey, Eli... whatcha thinking about?
Hey, Jake... whatcha workin' on?

It's Christmas Eve Eve, and here's a sneak peek picture of three of the new niners!
Zig, Tristan, and Tori. They all look so happy in this pic, but we all know high school is never easy -- especially if you're enrolled at Degrassi.

We wrapped Owen up as a holiday gift for you. Doesn't he look the huggable-est in all that football padding?
When Owen first showed up on Degrassi, I didn't like him at all. (Homophobia = not cute.) Lately, though, he's growing on me. Maybe his feelings for Anya sort of forced him to grow up a little? I'm curious what he'll be like without her around.

I have no idea what Drew and Dave are talking about in this sneak peek picture from the 2012 Degrassi episodes, but it looks serious.
I like Dave's stripey purple tie a lot.

Here's a new picture of a new character -- Zig.
Check him out on Degrassi in 2012! In the meantime, you can check him out right here.

Check out how cute and happy Katie and Drew look in this pic:
I kinda wish I could stick a big holiday bow on them for real.
Are you rooting for Krew or Drianca when Degrassi returns?

Tristan, a new Degrassi niner, is Owen's little brother. Does this sneak peek pic show a little brotherly bonding?
If I went to Degrassi, I'd want to borrow Tristan's sweatshirt. I love that color.
Are you looking forward to seeing Owen interact with his little brother as much as I am?

Here's another sneak peek picture from the upcoming Degrassi episodes:
I can't look at Degrassi's mascot without thinking about J.T.
Got any theories on who'll be inside that costume when Degrassi returns? Which character do you think would make the best mascot?
