This is the most festive I have ever been in my whole life. It was nice to have all of the house mates together with some wine and decorate the house. We were determined to make as much as we can and have none of the normal sparkly tat. Here's how we did it..........
We got ever so carried away with the silver spray paint. AND THEN IT RAN OUT wahhh
Sewing little stockings!
These were super easy to make and look so effective! Then we sprayed them with silver of course!
There's loads of links on you tube, heres one that we used....
Getting everything ready to get crafty!
The first hand made bow goes on the tree.
I bought some laser cut decorations the 3rd textile students at my work made to raise money for New Designers.
I made a few bows out of some hand woven fabric samples. I also used strips of cut off selvedge I got when I did a work placement at Wallace Sewell about 3 million years ago. Who needs tinsel? We also used ribbon and those strings of bobbles you can get.
I hand painted some wooden beads I had lying around in festive colours, then used them as baubles.
We made some classic snow flakes too, using red and silver paper. O and paper chains, much to my house mates horror, but I love them.
The finished tree! Now time for a cuppa.........
