Paper Garland Craft
Its a horrid wet rainy London day…..Abbi has decided to put some (more!) Christmas decorations in her room. She is not one for the “less is more” maxim, and this was an easy quick and satisfying craft.
- Silver embroidery thread
- Coloured paper
- Either double sided tape, OR a sewing machine
- Paper punch
I have a pad of paper from Paperchase that has a great selection of bright colours. It was perfect for the job, but obviously any paper would do – They look great with anything – newspaper, paint chips – even just white paper…..go mad!
Option 1: Without a sewing Machine
If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can tape two discs together, and attach the string in between. Lay out a random pattern, and place a small strip of double sided tape on one side. Push the thread onto the tape, and sandwich another disc onto the tape.
Option 2: With a Sewing Machine
She has kidnapped a portion of our tree for the Christmas cookies and candy canes.
I have to resist the temptation to be the “rearranging fairy” in the middle of the night! This minimalist tree is more my taste. Certainly not everyones (as my son keeps telling me).Abbis handmade cookies above were decorated at a local independent bakery where she did a class this week. (….i am way too controlling for that much icing and glitter). Breath breath breath!The other little girl is the owners daughter, as Abbi was the only girl booked on the course. Dee the owner/baker was incredibly patient with Abbi. She had a fab time.
