Hi friends! How are you doing?
Me and my son have been making Christmas ornaments over here. And we’d sure love to share.
They are really easy and a lot of.
I think there’s just something really special about making handmade ornaments?
All you need is some air dry clay, a rolling pin, a couple of Christmas cookie cutters, a straw, a few interestingly textured items to give your ornaments some lovely festive patterns, brush and watercolors and some yarn. That’s it.
To make our ornaments, we first rolled our clay into about 3 mm thickness.
We used our cutters to cut out various shapes.
We used a fir tree branch and a rolling print to make a fun imprint.
We also used a piece of burlap ribbon to make a pattern.
To make sure we’ll be able to hang our ornaments, we made holes in them using a straw.
We let the ornaments dry for a day or two. And then we painted them.
Finally we added festive pieces of yarn to be able to hang our ornaments.
Easy and fun.
We are wishing you the best Holiday Season!
We love you,
Petra and her family
I wish you a blessed holiday season. May this Christmas bring you comfort, joy, peace and happiness to last throughout the coming year!
With lots of love,
Let the tradition of visiting the Christmas Market continue!
As some of you might have noticed, I am a big fan of Christmas markets. I love visiting them, I love breathing in the atmosphere, I love watching the people there, I love all the smells of great food being prepared, I like the giggling that can be heard all around and I really enjoy seeing the very special products that can only be found at this festive event.
This year, besides all that has been mentioned above, I decided to focus on testing almond punch. Why I chose the almond punch of all the drinks available? Well, that I am not even so sure of but I am so glad I did. I think I might have really loved it in the past and wanted to experience that special taste once again. I tasted a few different kinds and liked the third one best 🙂 (oops). It really was yummy though.
If you feel like it, then you are heartily invited to come and enjoy a few of the special moments of this year’s Christmas Market here in Bratislava, Slovakia with me…
Although I show all traits of a crochet person throughout the year, I have noticed that there is a different kind of craft that allures me during the holiday season.
I don’t really understand why this keeps happening to me, but I can see clearly that each year around Christmas I find myself working enthusiastically on a new knitting project.
Maybe it’s all about the gorgeous sound of needles at work that adds to the delightfulness of holidays and makes this time even more spectacular. Who knows…
This year I am working on a special project that is making me very, very happy. I can’t wait to show you the result.
And, by the way, do you have any special craft or hobby that calls your name during the holidays? Do share!
With lots of love,
