making xmas decorations





Lots of wintery projects have been going on in our house so far, it's great that the littlun can get involved too (well I don't have much choice actually ; )


Whilst we put some potatoes on the fire to roast (for the first time!) we got on with some projects...


We made a starry wreath type thing with a moon in the middle. I cut out stars from a Farrow and Ball sample card thing, and some I covered in glitter. The moon I photocopied from an old book and mounted it on card and cut it out.

I loved glueing glitter all over some feathers too, think I'll be doing some more of that!

My mister helped punch stars out of old wall paper to make a garland. In fact we made a bout half a mile of it! I found the punch online, I think it was shipped from America?

We managed to get our tree up yesterday. It's a bit smaller than last year, but I'm very happy with it. As usual, we bought it from a local xmas tree grower here on the Island.




the littlun wanted to sleep under it as soon as the lights were on!
