Here are a few pics of my handmade Christmas decorations created this year (although I didn't make the wreath). I would have posted these earlier as I took them weeks ago but alas the flu has gripped our household with 2 firm hands and choked all the mucus out of it's residents. There have been hospital visits, countless bottles of medicine and tablets have been taken and we're still a little rough. So here's my attempt to remind me of what enthusiasm for Christmas felt like as I have slept through most of the actual celebrations.
Fortunately, my parents have visited and been fairy godmothers- cleaning, cooking and general nursing. Here's hoping 2013 will be less sick filled!
I saw this in a book or magazine last year and thought 'I could do that!' It's just some little jars/ candle holders with red tissue paper on the outside, the edge of a doily tied with a piece of string or ribbon.
I also placed little painted tins in between with scented candles in to fill the porch with a festive citrussy cinnamon and clove aroma
