Making Christmas Decorations

For the last few years we have decorated our Christmas tree with decorations that we have made with our little ones, this always make me happy, and our children love to see their works of art hanging proudly on the branches.

These are our very first handmade decorations we made when our little ones were barely toddlers, they are doing a great job still perfectly intact.

This year we decided to make our own Christmas Baubles.  We stocked up on our supplies, plastic baubles, mini sparkly pom poms, colourful bells, and colourful stars and sequins.  Then we were ready to sit down and get creative.

I really do love the colour combinations my little ones went with.  They loved picking and choosing each and every item to be included.

Little hands were very busy creating.

Bells and pom poms scattered about, looking very festive indeed.

When we were happy, we simply joined them together, popped some hanging string through the holes, and tah-dah gorgeous handmade Christmas baubles to hang proudly on our tree.

We also decorated our Christmas cards this year, my little ones happily done some paintings inside some of the cards, and we decorated all the envelopes with this gorgeous snowman stamp.  And we may have added a few stickers before we popped them in the post.

I also made some Christmas decorations myself this year, here is a little sneak peek at my first attempt at crochet amigurumi, and I am really pleased with how it turned out, and will blog in detail about this gorgeous little fellow very soon.

Enjoy xx
