Up until yesterday I had not felt like preparing anything for christmas. Nor have I really had the time. So I have been waiting for the mood to strike. Such is crafting and I. There is really no use pushing these things. And that christmas crafting mood did eventually strike. Fortunately there was a little free window of time in my day.
These fabric covered baubles are very easy. I'm a little reluctant to put any glass on the tree this year with a little crawler in the house. These seem far more baby proof than the glass variety.
op shop fabric torn in 1-2cm strips
balls coated in craft glue
wound over ball as you would wind a ball of yarn
To hang I am going to thread a long piece of cotton at the top with a needle.
In past years I have not colour themed my tree. But I am thinking of a loose blue and red theme for this year. With less rather than more. Using what I have in my stash. I do like the sound of a simple christmas.
