Life has been pretty hectic lately – a new job, school exams, jury duty, sickness – which has been keeping us away from our craft room. Fortunately life is starting to settle down again, just in time for us to share lots of Christmas crafty projects, gift ideas, and recipes with you!
If you follow us on facebook, you will know that this Christmas we are using a white, red, and natural palette for a Scandi inspired Christmas. We are looking forward to decorating our home over the next week or so and adding lots of new home made decorations.
We have lots of Christmas entertaining planned over the coming weeks. It is always fun to make place cards for the table and these Christmas Treat Place Cards are a bit like little piñatas. Make them from baking paper and fill with M & M’s or other mini treats.
This idea would be popular at the Children’s table! You could also include some jokes and paper hat in the package (like you would find in a Christmas bonbon).
