DIY Gold Foil Ornaments

DIY Ornaments

Mario and I got our first real Christmas tree this year, to celebrate our first Christmas as a married couple. It smells so lovely, although I have to admit I keep worrying about it dying before Christmas, especially with a heat wave predicted in the next few days! So far it is as lush and green as the day we brought it home though. :) Continue reading

3 days until Christmas! We’re at the pointy end now! Mario and I managed to knock out the last few presents we wanted to buy today, so I’m feeling pretty on top of things – how about you?

Today’s project is, without a doubt, my favourite Christmas project I’ve done. I’ve been working on it for a few weeks now, and it feels wonderful to be finished!

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last 10 days, I’ve been super busy! Why, you ask? Well, in fact, we had our engagement party last weekend! So, of course, I had to (yes, had to) do lots of craft projects to prepare!

I’m a bit proud of the project I’m sharing with you today. I came up with it all by myself (i.e., no pinspiration)! I bought the chevron fabric ages and ages ago online, thinking that I might make a cushion out of it. It wasn’t as thick as I had anticipated, however, and it wouldn’t really have worked. I’m pretty excited that I finally got to use it. Continue reading

D.I.Y. Christmas Wreath

christmas wreath headerThis year was the first Christmas that we have spent in our house. We didn’t have much in the way of decorations, and we particularly wanted a beautiful wreath for our front door. I saw so many lovely ones around the shops, but with the price tags in the vicinity of $50 and up, I thought I could do a bit better by making my own. As luck would have it, by the time I got around to it, many Christmas decorations were already on sale (yes, this was still 2 weeks before Christmas!). In fact, this would be a great project to make now in preparation for next year, what with all the lonely decorations still hanging around in stores with their little 50% off stickers! I put this one together for around $20. Continue reading
