The elves have been busy in our house this Christmas. We have made some lovely handmade decorations from a couple of great tutorials I've found around blog land recently.
This wreath was really simple to make. All you need is a wire coat hanger and quite a few baubles plus I added a bit of tinsel and to finish a gold ribbon bow. It is now hanging in our front bay window looking very festive. Here's the tutorial that I followed here.
Next the girls and I made these easy paper globes with some inexpensive scrapbook paper and some brads. The tutorial for these is here.
There were a few other tutorials I wanted to try but they will have to wait till next year. Time just seems to run out at this time of the year for some reason?!?
Last year we made these angels from a "Klutz" kit set. There is 8 included in the box to make up and they were a really fun Christmas craft to do with the girls. Check them out here.
Christmas Angels on our tree.
It wouldn't be a kiwi Christmas without one of these iconic ornaments.
A few years ago now my Mother passed on some of her old ornaments for our tree.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
