The Christmas decorations we made

In the lead up to Christmas and inspired by the lovely Lulastic blog and Amelia’s Magazine, the eight year old and I set out to create some Christmas gifts out of nowt more than a few twigs, pegs and crafty bits.

Amelia has created a wonderful resource of ideas from around the web: pompom wreaths, traditional scandi paper stars, little painted peg hanging decorations and more…

We chose the not-too-challenging-looking wooden peg star. The wooden clothes pegs were bought from a pound shop for – guess what? – a whole £1 per packet and were easy to take apart and glue together using PVA. We also invented one of our own – a simple reindeer decoration made from just a twig, two googly eyes and a pompom. Cute!
