Happy Christmas everyone!
I love making all kinds of houses, it seems! Gingerbread, chocolate, real houses – it doesn’t make a difference, I love them all!
And I love this – being able to have a hyacinth at home! I am usually too allergic to stand their fragrance, but nowadays I feel so much better that I can finally have some natural Christmas scent around!
Some of them are textured. I used a piece of tulle when rolling out the dough. It makes for a nice structure.
I added the bell using a small piece of wire. Plus red and white string to use for hanging it.
Here’s the template if you too want to make an angel or two!
Känns vintrigt och juligt, också då när det regnar ner utomhus.
Här kommer mallarna om någon annan känner sig hågad att baka mitt pepparkakshus: (och om du gör det så skulle jag jättejättejättemycket uppskatta om du mailade mej eller skrev en kommentar här! Det är så himla roligt att få ta del av andras pepparkakshus tycker jag!)
P.S. På Facebook hänger vi som gillar pepparkakshus i gruppen Allt om Pepparkakshus – välkommen med du också!
I’m going all in with wreath making this year! It’s just so much fun, and so easy – just take a styrofoam wreath, wrap it with something and add decorations. In this case, I finally got to use some of my really old berries and leaves, plus some silvery branches that I’ve collected during the years (left overs from some project or decoration or other).
This was a fun and fast DIY!
I took some air drying clay, rolled it quite thin with a rolling pin.
I used some tulle netting when I rolled the clay the last time, to get some structure.
I lay the sheet of clay around an empty washed jar.
I made sure the edges overlapped.
Then I stamped some ”holes” using a straw. I trimmed the edge on the top of the jar.
When the clay had dried, I glued some red string to the ”holes” and made a bow at the top.
The little bullfinch likes his view! He can gaze out over all the Christmas loveliness that spreads out in our home these days.
