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.

Oh I've got one.

The family of elves that live on our porch.

Aw, this thread died somewhat. Anyone got anything else to show?

Here's my pick from my 6 days of Christmas crafts so far...even if they look a bit more like starfish than snowflakes

Yay for Christmas poncing! Totally new to this, in a way, but kind of not. I guess I was an undiscovered poncer. I've been poncing away on Pinterest without even knowing I was doing it.

handknit gloves and scarf for my sister. Funny i've never seen her wear them.

Bejaypers, I am feeling incredibly disorganised right now. I am tempted to send a photo of my liquor cabinet. It's all I have that is remotely Christmassey but none of it is home brewed.

I'm no crafter - these are from a kit bought for DD last Christmas. We sat together last weekend and started these. Needless to say, DD lost interest shortly after starting so I finished them. We like them!

Love that elf!!

Christmas Elf- very please with him! He'll be keeping an eye on my DS (age 7 months, never to early to start the Father Christmas bribery!)

vamosbebe Wed 21-Nov-12 13:54:29

Think you're a bit premature to be poncing Xmas just yet.

For the American mumsnetters, a bit of poncetasic Thanksgiving... Bread cornucopia

Wow, you lot are all so talented! The cakes! The bags! The advent stockings! I'm in awe <slinks off in shame for thinking my humble crafty efforts were any good>

Oh no! Not TWC againgrin

Am loving all the Christmas goodies though!

AhCmonSeriouslyNow Tue 20-Nov-12 15:16:02

Oh my, not Terry--'s crotch--!

Very impressed by Scuttlebug's bag.
I have done handmade gifts in the past. I wish I had photos of the crushed velvet retro ties I did for my brothers one year when I was about 17...they were quite something!

I want to use a different theme in wrapping for each family member. I love this one.

Xroads Tue 20-Nov-12 14:01:18

Thanks I'll try my pic again and give the vodka a go too

GlaikitFizzog Tue 20-Nov-12 13:58:22

Ahardyfool I only started knitting in February! An old dog can be taught new tricks!

GlaikitFizzog Tue 20-Nov-12 13:56:44

Photo was easy ,just uploaded from my photo stream.

Vodka whack a load of sweets in vodka, put bottles In dishwasher on high setting. Leave to dissolve shaking it every day.

Ahardyfool Tue 20-Nov-12 13:55:34

I have some bottles ready for the vodka ;)

I did make monogrammed santa sacks a couple of years ago. I'd just had DD that summer and had gone all homey homespun. However, I think the whole world has now we are all poverty stricken and in recession. I'm not sure what to make of it.

I did briefly consider housing a Turkey in the garden for xmas 2013, and growing all my own veg for xmas dinner but that was in a REALLY carried away moment.

I wish I could knit and do sewy things. Very well done everyone smile

Xroads Tue 20-Nov-12 13:54:08

both wink

GlaikitFizzog Tue 20-Nov-12 13:50:08

The photo or the vodka?

Xroads Tue 20-Nov-12 13:48:35

GlaikitFizzog Tue 20-Nov-12 13:43:03

Yay it worked!
