Feeling Festive

Ah at last I feel its appropriate to start posting about Christmas. This week I started to cut out paper snowflakes to go in the window of our tiny house and it made me feel so excited.

As we are on such a tight budget for Christmas my friends and family have warned me not to buy any gifts for them and just concentrate on our children. I will however make some pretty things as one thing I don’t lack in is fabric and crafty things.

My other gift to my dearest ones is a Swedish style meal and party on Christmas Eve. Spending time with loved ones is what Christmas is all about and also for me making the house even more kitsch. Is that possible?

Here are some of my favourite ideas to inspire you!

How to make 5 pointed snow flake from How about Orange. I followed this and then just varied the cuts I made to produce different designs.

Felt Christmas Ornament Tutorial from Zakka Life. So easy to make and very pretty, I will so be making a few of these!

The lovely ingthings is always full of wonderful ideas, images and super pretty things. I like this pom pom garland with a vintage Christmas ornament hanging from it. So sweet.

Hello Sandwich Advent Calendar garland.  A wonderful way to reuse old envelopes, boxes, paper, cards, stamps and other bits of ephemera.

Eat Drink Chic free downloadable Holiday Gift Tags. How beautiful are these? Also I think it is so generous of artists to make there work available for free. As long as we don’t abuse it and try and re-sell them or pass them off as our own! Heaven forbid. The blog also has many other wonderful ideas and freebies so enjoy and GET CRAFTING!
