When Decem-brrr arrived the decorations inside the house changed from Autumn to Winter and Christmas.
The first change was in the front hall, where the urn of Autumn decorations has been replaced with 4 large branches slightly covered in snow.
This is a small area and hard to photograph. It isn’t only crochet and knit projects that are a WIP (work in progress) this area is too.
Right now I’ve added some of my wooden snowflakes that I made last year.
I’ve also been stitching some more plastic canvas snowflakes. Over the years I’ve used lots for package decorations or given lots away. As I will now have two twig trees I’ll be needing more.
- crochet snowflakes
- felt snowflakes
- plastic canvas snowflakes – small
- plastic canvas snowflakes – big
- wooden snowflakes
Another addition was a wood slice snowman. My lovely hubby cut me more wooden slices and I wanted to try out my new Ryobi glue gun so made a wood slice snowman.
Each wood circle is about 5 cm across so the snowman is about 15 cm tall (not measuring the hat). The glue gun (works on a battery) heated up really fast and glued the wooden slices together and then buttons, googly eyes, a hat, a felt nose and twigs were glued on. This was a quick and easy craft to make.
The Dollarville village is displayed on a table this year. We have had a lot of dull days so this photo is a bit on the dark side.
My collection of trees seems to grow each year, and now not only fills the mantle but on the hearth as well. We decided not to put up the big tree this year but went with all sorts of small trees.
Another project in a tree shape was all the little framed photos of the grandkids that used to hang on the big tree. This year I arranged them all on a wall hanging from 2007 at the top to 2020 at the bottom.
I wish each and every visitor to my website a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. New words to an old song: I’ll be home for Christmas, that’s where I’ve been all year! I’ll be doing my part to fatten the curve!
See you all in 2021 when it just has to be a better year than 2020.
