I remember making Christmas decorations with my Mum and Nan when I was a child. They were usually made from materials we had on hand – such as paper, recycled Christmas cards, wool, fabric etc. Making decorations each year adds to the excitement and is always part of the Christmas preparations in our family. It is the Christmas traditions that you make as a family that are most important aspect of Christmas for me.
To fit with our Red Gingham theme, we have made some Gingham Stars from gingham, felt, twine, and buttons to add to our tree this year. These are simple decorations to make, and can be made in colours/fabrics to match your own theme.
- white felt (we used acrylic felt)
- fabric (red gingham)
- heavy duty fusible interfacing
- white buttons
- red/white bakers twine
