PINECONE ORNAMENTS

Decorating with what the nature has to offer, is a favorite of ours. Pinecones are really versatile and can be used in many ways, ranging from decorations to having the kids paint and making little figures from them. 
Today we are using them as ornaments and they are to hang from the Christmas tree. This is perfect if you like a more natural feel in your Christmas decorating. Happy 3rd Advent.

YARN CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

You know those projects you can do while snuggling up in a chair with a blanket and watching tv or listening to music? Well, this is one of them. So put on a pot of tea and go get your materials :)
 
 
You'll need a few items:
 
- A couple of different colored yarn balls 
- Glue, preferably a glue-stick 
- Christmas balls
- Scissor
 
 
1. Take a Christmas ball and dab it with the glue stick. The glue is to get a sticky surface, so the yarn wont slide of while winding.
 
2. Now take a yarn ball and press the loose end of it into the glue somewhere in the middle of the Christmas ball. 
 
3. Now start winding the yarn around the Christmas ball horizontally. This way you secure the end and you start to fill out the ball. Continue to wind vertically as well, going from one side of the top and down, to the other side of the top, while rotating the ball. This way the thread secure itself. Wind until you have completely covered the Christmas ball.
 
4. When you are done, cut of the end and secure it by tying a knot into the strings.

FROSTY THE "SWEATER" SNOWMAN

I have so many fond memories of my childhood. One in particular was when it was winter and my kid brother and I played around in the snow, building snowmen and little igloos from snowballs and placed lit candles in them. It sometimes got really dark outside, in the afternoon around our house, so we placed them in front of the kitchen windows, so my mom could look out into dark and see these glowing igloos. I remember seeing her, from the outside, standing there in the kitchen, being really busy baking and making food for us, and for some reason it just didn't feel so cold outside. 
 
 
 
 
 
This snowman is a charmer and it's a perfect project for the kids as well.

SACK FOR CHRISTMAS TREE

Yesterday we showed you how to make a slightly different Christmas tree and today we have the instructions for a sack to cover up the bottom. This project can be used for any tree or plant you wish to add a bit detail too. It would also add a great decor detail and coziness to the bigger Christmas tree in the house.
