Have you been doing any poncetastic prep for Christmas?

Do please post up some pics of your homemade decorations and/or homemade gifts for us all to gawp at.

Or, if your child has brought home (or made at home) any brilliant/endearingly wonky Xmas crafts, do take a snap and post them up too.

We'll start you all off with a pic of a slightly conventional-angle-defying Christmas candle fashioned by RebeccaMumsnet's DS <bless his cottons>

Here's mine....a London themed glittery tree decoration!

Kveta Mon 19-Nov-12 13:10:58

ooh, we have done LOADS of christmas themed craft, I will need to get some photos. Best so far were some 'mistletoes' for the great-grandparents (by 3 month old DD and 3 yo DS). not sure about making them in to christmas trees, or keeping them unadorned though.

Ooh, I'm in the middle of making salt-dough personalised Xmas decs for the DCs' teachers… I'm quite pleased with at least one grin

How do I add a pic from an iPhone please? Indeed, can I??

I am not sure how poncetastic mine will be but we're going to have loads if I succeed in my Conquering Christmas Project !
In the meantime, please accept a picture of the gingerbread house that we decorated last year (and did not make from scracth - I've missed the poncetastic point, haven't I?)

AhCmonSeriouslyNow Mon 19-Nov-12 16:00:35 pic seems to only appear if you clic on it - sorry!

AhCmonSeriouslyNow Mon 19-Nov-12 16:01:00

*click (and it's appearing fine now) I shall shut up.

givemeaclue Mon 19-Nov-12 16:30:12

hilarious, is there a prize for the worst one?

LillianGish Mon 19-Nov-12 16:36:52

Don't know how to make my absolutely poncetastic gingerbread house appear in my post, but if you click on my name you can see it (I hope).

Would you like a photo of my bottles of sloe gin/vodka which I made 3 years ago and I am now too afraid to drink? ever again

peeriebear I LOVE that! Did you have a pattern? My SIL adores The Nightmare Before Christmas so could be a brilliant extra gift for her smile

carovioletfizz Mon 19-Nov-12 17:20:59

Oh, glad it worked. Some lovely things here!

ReshapeWhileDamp Mon 19-Nov-12 17:24:45

Love the Jack ornament! And the knitted stockings.

Ahcmon, where did you get hold of the stripey peppermint sweets for your house? For added poncetastic points, I want to have iconic American candies on my own gingerbread house. blush <retreats under stone>

No Littlemiss I just made it by copying a picture of his face smile Black, white, red and green felt. The bell was donated from a collar that belonged to my dear departed cat.
