And a very Crafty Christmas to you...

That time of year is upon us all, where we all dig into our corner hidey-holes and pull out that box, that very special box marked Christmas. I will openly admit, I favour the hand-made decorations over the shop bought ones, with 90% of my decorations being hand-made either by me or gifted to me via my brilliant mother.

Below are my favourite decorations, turning my plain corner into festive chaos.
From this....
To this......
Starting with baubles... this first one is just a styrofoam ball, covered in pva glue and dipped in glitter.  It reminds me of a disco ball!
The next few bauble were a gift from my mum, first she felted the balls then she beaded them.
Also made by mum is this floating angel and a red/white dangle.
Some more made by me...
A small wreath for the tree..
Wire stars, both large, mall  and beaded.

Then I went a little crazy with the felt and made some hanging decorations.... BTW it's not a moose, it's supposed to be a reindeer.
And yes, I was guilty of buying those cheap foam kits and making a Santa and a Reindeer.... (I love Santa's eyes!)
And then of course, what's Christmas without the Santa's stockings.
The first is a little red one, it's normally for the pets - first being used for Grif the Budgie and then Scooter Rabbit inherited it, but alas, this year it shall remain empty.
And then my stocking and Mr's stocking... and because we are always good (!!!) they get filled every year!
The tree topper is my sweet angel....

There were many, many more to show you.... but by the time you would get through seeing them all, I fear it may have been the new year!
Why don't you join in and tell us your christmas creativity, I'd really love to read about them!
