On our front door is this one made of plastic bags - the sort you find at the supermarket (smallish transparent ones) for fruit and veg - cut into strips and tied onto a wire cottage hanger fashioned into a circle and topped with a pink bird of indeterminable type:
Here it is again. Unfortunately, my rubbish photo does not really convey the shimmery, almost magical quality the plastic bags impart (yeh, right....):
A close-up of the pink birdy thingy:
Here is my famed (who am I kidding?) felted wreath that I featured on a previous post, topped with what I foolishly thought at the time was a festive robin, only to realise very quickly that it's a feathery imposter and not a robin at all.
This is one that Little Miss J and P made. Take a bit of cardboard or stiff paper and cut out a circle. Using old wrapping paper, cut out lots of leaf shapes and stick them in an overlapping stylee onto your circle. Complete with a bow.
Here are a few more home-made decs (made mainly by Little Miss J and P) for your delectation. Drawings stuck onto a peg and pegged onto a lampshade:
Birds with concertina paper wings:
Angels. If you look closely, you may notice that someone has stuck photos of Little Miss J and P and Mr J and P on the faces.
Well that's all folks. I won't be blogging now until the New Year as next week, Grandpa J and P is coming to stay and I've got to try my hand at baking (mince pies and birthday cake). Baking is not my thing, so wish me luck! I've also got to pack for our forthcoming holiday. Yes, another holiday. YeeHaa. More about that when I see you next! Have a lovely Xmas and wonderful New Year or, as they say, where we're going, Buon Natale e felice anno nuovo. Ciao tutti. xx
