My Creative Space

...has some rather poorly photographed handmade Christmas decorations. This will be the first Christmas that we haven't had to travel away from home to celebrate with family; and, therefore, our first Christmas - ever - with our very own tree and decorations. I am feeling particularly homesick, and a bit overwhelmed, as we creep up to the one year mark of living in Sydney - and have found welcome distraction in decorating fever.

In preparation for the arrival of the tree in a few days (read: because I've become slightly obsessed with getting a tree), I made these felt hanging decorations today. They were so easy it's almost embarrassing - perfect for a rainy afternoon with the kids, too.

You will need:

: two A4 pieces of adhesive felt in whatever colour you like - contrasting or the same, it doesn't matter.
: a pencil and some paper
: some scissors

Peel off the backings on the felt and stick to them each other - sticky sides facing.
Draw up some templates and trace them onto the felt with a pencil
Cut out the shapes, thread through some string, and you're done!

If you have a go at these, and especially if you do a better job than I did, I'd love to see them - add a link in the comments.
