Hi everyone, here is a super quick, less than 10 minute fabulous mini project for you! It's how to make a tinsel wreath, this would be great to do with kids, or on your own to co-ordinate with youe Christmas decorations!
You will need: Polystyrene wreath, 2 metres of chunky tinsel, 8 baubels, a hot glue gun, string or ribbon for a hanging loop.
Step 1: Wrap the tinsel around the wreath, either glue it or pin it in place.
Step 2: Carefully remove the ends of the baubels, and then use a pen/pencil to make holes into the wreath to help the baubels stay in. Fill the hole with a little glue, and stick the baubels on. Finally use string or ribbon to make a hanging loop! Super simple and mess free!

Hi everyone, we have an adorable project to share with you this month, it's a Father Christmas cone decoration!
You will need: 1 cone (mine was 25cm tall) red felt 30cm x 30cm, a small amount of pink felt & black felt, some long white felt, one pom pom, gold thread and a hot glue gun & glue sticks!
Step 1: Place the cone slightly lower from the top edge of the red felt, glue the edge and roll the felt around the cone, glue again and cut any excess felt away, but leaving a little excess felt at the top of the cone, and then pinch the felt and glue the pom pom on for his hat bobble.
Step 2: Cut a small pink face, a beard and moustach, the size will depend on how big your cone is. I used the gold thread to make some 'backstitch' lines on his beard (see photo).
Step 3: Glue the face and beard in place. I then cut a 2cm wide strip of white felt to go down the front of Father Christmas' suit, a 1.5cm strip of white felt to go around the top of his face for the hat brim, and a 2cm wide strip of white felt to go around the bottom of the cone, again glue in place. Once you have glued his hat brim, cut a small amount of white felt for his 'back' hair, making sure the felt is wide enough just to cover the side of his pink face.
Step 4: Cut a 1cm strip of black felt for his belt and make a small white felt buckle, glue both pieces on. Now cut 2 arms, 2 black gloves and 2 white cuffs, again, depending on the size of your cone, make them slightly bent but not to long. Glue the glove to the bottom of the sleeve and the cuff on the top and attach with some glue to the body at the top of the sleeve and again at the cuff, so the hands are free (see picture).
Step 5: I stuck in 2 black pins for the eyes, or alternatively you could use black beads. Your Father Christmas is finished! How cute is he?!

Hi everyone, here is a really simple project for you, it's how to make a fabric christmas tree using a polystyrene cone (which can be found in store only, we do not post this item) 4 inch fabric squares and pins!
Step 1: take your 4 inch square piece of fabric, fold it in half and then in half again, and pin it to the tree, you can make each layer a separate pattern, or mix them up all over the place for a different effect!
Step 2: Once you have filled up your tree you could add a star or bow to the top, or make a bow by putting two squares wrong sides together, squeezing in the middle and pining it to the top! A nice simple and quick project.
