    Thumbs up Homemade Xmas decorations, made from hand-foraged wood/plants and recycled materials!

    Some of Del's latest handiwork... A lovely Christmas garland, using tartan fabric from recycled pyjama bottoms, bits of wood (stripped and cleaned) and cones from the local woods:









    Front door flower arrangement and 'decorated trees':




    Foraged bits and pieces ready to make the Christmas wreath, which we collected from the local parkland/woods on Sunday:





    We'll see what she can come up with from that lot!

    Looks lovely Marco, almost spurred me on to get the deckies out of the loft... but then again, nah. (I'm not at home much over Xmas anyway).

    I have got a couple of advent calendars on the go, the usual chocolate one & a playmobil one, after two days I have a driller killer xmas elf

    When you say "she" you really mean yourself don't you Marco?

    Lol - not at all, I'd be pretty hopeless at that kind of stuff, as in putting it all together. I'm ok with some aspects of interior design, but Del's much more creative.

    Do you like the results?

    Marco.

    Yes I like home made decorations especially from natural foraged material..In fact Helen and myself went to Moseley Old Hall on Saturday for a pre Christmas treat for Helens mum which included a wreath making workshop. I will post some pics up later.
