Christmas: home made decoration ideas

nicholas-206279_1280 smaller

Even though the thought of Christmas only being a matter of weeks away makes me panic a little, seeing the houses around my neighbourhood starting to put their light displays up gets me a little excited about the festive season.

Each year, we have a bit of a bit of a colour theme going for the tree. This year we’re going “naturals” with gold, white and either silver or bronzey/browney colours with wooden ornaments,  and big ass leaves and pine cones the boys have been collecting. Sounds bloody weird I know, but it’ll look great once it’s all together.

Jack wants to decorate the pine cones and both boys have been asking to make other Christmas bits so I’ve been looking into things they can make that don’t take long and won’t coat my house in glitter (because I’m a jerk). Here’s 10 things we’ve found:


Sock snowmen/ladies: (thanks for the suggestion Taryn!) Found on Darkroom & Dearly


Pretty pine cones: I’m thinking of using a glitter spray so we don’t have to fiddle with loose glitter (because it drives me nuts) or we’ll paint the tips with white paint. Found on Rainy Day Mum
