Hi. Has anyone made any Christmas decorations this year.
Each year I say I'm going to, but then run out of time!
Anyone managed it, if you did, what did you make?

I got some nice old preserve jars and some Christmas decals and made some nice candle holders. Put the decal on the jar and then added a ribbon and some small baubles on the rim of the jar. It's very cute. Might do a natural one next with string round the top and some greenery!

Today the DC and I have had great times making paper chains and then decorating them with other paper decorations. We have hung origami candy canes, woven hearts and paper stars in the paper chains and are now feeling suitably festive!

I've also been making some beaded cross stitch tree decorations and have just finished a cross stitch Christmas reindeer design that I'll be making into a cushion in the next few days. grin

Made various felt things after a few years procrastinating! Look up 'no sew poinsetta felt' if you want a quick and simple thing. They came out really well and were quick and easy. Even DH liked them and he really struggles to understand the point of such things!

Well you asked!

Here's the cushion cover, the tree decs and a hanging ornament I made a couple of weeks ago.

And here's the paper chain with candy canes, angels & hearts.

Plus a Santa Stop Here door hanger I made for DS

I've been quite ill with a chest infection and cross stitching has kept me sane for the last few weeks. blush

Actually a bit twitchy as I finished the cushion cover and don't know what to stitch next. Thinking about trying a Harry Potter themed piece, maybe a doe with 'always' underneath for DD but haven't found a pattern I like.
