How to make a mini paper wreath

I was at a friends house last week and she was making lots of adorable little paper wreaths to give to friends for Christmas.  They looked gorgeous all packaged up ready to give.  I had my camera with me, so I asked her to show me how she made them …


1.  Cut 8 pieces of paper into 4cm x 8cm rectangles.


 2. Fold the rectangle in half lengthways.


3. Fold it in half the other way.


4. Open it out again and fold the corners up.


You are folding from the open end up toward the folded end.


5. Fold it back in half again.


6.  Do the same with each of your eight pieces of paper.


7.  One by one you’ll need to fit the pieces of paper inside each other until you have a complete circle.



8.  Now you can attach a piece of ribbon and hang it on your tree.

MY CREATIVE SPACE…clay decorations


Completely inspired by clay christmas decorations that I have come across online via pinterest - here, here & here & here, just to name a few.


Goose and I tried our hand at making clay Christmas decorations on the weekend.


Using cookie cutters, some rubber stamps, some pine leaves & some doilies.


I was really happy with how they turned out!



We used oven bake clay and it was so beautiful to work with.  
It was so much fun, we just kept going and going. 


A friend and I are having a little stall at a fundraising market at her children’s school on Monday night next week, so I think that I might add a few to our stall. 



I think I’ll also use them as tags on Christmas presents that can then double as Christmas tree decorations as part of the gift.


What Christmas creativity have you been getting up to?
Time to put up the tree and start the advent calendar.
