Its less than 2 weeks to Christmas, and here I am again with no presents made and wondering how I can pull it together in time.!
I am surprised that I’m surprised… Every January I think to myself that I’ll make one gift a month so I can give everyone some hand knitted/sewn/woven/printed loveliness.. But it never happens!
I did however, manage to add to my handmade decorations!
The tree above was made with the help of a small helper, a glue gun and my jar of odd buttons.
The star below was made after I came across a video online, (@bookhou on Instagram). I used 7 a4 sheets of light card and the glue gun again instead of staples.
I had some willow left from making a basket during the summer and I twisted it into a very rough circle to make this wreath and added a few extra bits:
And finally….! my mother mentioned she would like a wreath so today I went to the garden and gathered any flexible branches I could find along with some ivy and any other interesting wildflowers/weeds!
Then some twisting and tieing and it didn’t look too bad:
2 weeks isn’t much time to make gifts in, but I’m pretty sure I’ll manage a few more decorations 😁
