DIY Christmas Decorations

I’m a mixed bag of feelings about Christmas.  I grit my teeth through some parts of it – shopping in a ‘Hunger Games’ style battle with zillions of other stressed parents at the last minute (because no matter how many times I say I’m going to shop early, that never happens!), the long hours of travelling we normally have to do in thick traffic, the dreaded ‘clean up’…  BUT there are certain parts of Chrissy that I just love.

The anticipation of seeing all the kid’s faces when they open their presents, the ambience of fairy lights, being together with family (so long as everyone behaves!), the beautiful food and drink we are lucky enough to enjoy each year, all these things and more give me a warm fuzzy cheesy feeling inside.

One of the things I do enjoy is wrapping presents, and decorating the house (although I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas trees, more about that to come in another post…), so I thought I would put together some simple (and some not quite so simple) DIY Christmas decorating ideas.  They wont break the bank (some might break your mind though depending on how patient you are…. maybe have a wee hot toddy handy for those), but will make your home feel festive and look gorgeous too.  I hope you find some inspiration, and PLEASE, if you pull any of these off, we’d love to see some photos!!
