I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas with their family and friends sharing lots of delicious food and bubbles! And, hopefully, the rain didn’t upset your plans – I was looking forward to spending a couple of days camping on the beach…stretched out on my beach towel on the sand, reading and relaxing – but of course the weather gods had other ideas! Oh well, maybe next year?!
I was a little unmotivated with Christmas decorations this December – I didn’t even put up my Christmas tree…I wanted to do something different, so I put together this little Christmas garland with crafty bits and pieces that I had in my craft box, old family photographs and cards from last year. It felt much more special and personal than a tree!
(Please excuse my woeful photography skills!)
I love making my own Christmas decorations, and there are just so many kinds to chose from! Last year I made these paper stars, which are super easy and so pretty.
They look best when made with paper that has a pattern on both sides, like Cristina Re paper. There is a great tutorial on these stars on Cristina Re’s blog. I kind of don’t want Christmas to be over now because I want to keep on making decorations…I’ll have to get started for next year!
