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.
love these! Can't wait to see your tree!ReplyDelete
Thats a winner, simple but effective!! Love it... :)ReplyDelete

I like the sound of a simple Christmas this year too and have been waiting for the bug to grab hold of me....this might just be the project to to it. I think i can get the toddlers and teenager involved in this and make it a family craft activity...thanks so much for sharing your idea.ReplyDelete
I am wondering just what i can put out this year in the way of decorations due to toddler twins but these will work well!
I like your colour theme idea too.
A simple Xmas is where it's at :)ReplyDelete
Last year we made all our decorations...including covering plastic baubles with crochet doilies, I love the simplitcity of them and that many hands played a part in 'making them'.
I rather like the colour theme you are going for :)
They look great and I love the colours too. :)ReplyDelete
So clever and pretty... have Pinned it!!ReplyDelete
Lovely Idea also can't wait to see your tree, we put ours up on the 1st of December.ReplyDelete
Op shop fabric? .. what a great find!ReplyDelete
Totally agree on the simple theme- we are absconding to the beach with elaborate notes and directions left for Santa to make sure the lego is deposited there as requested. melxReplyDelete
These are gorgeous, Tania. I might just have to make some myself! I love the red and blue. Not sure what I'll do this year re: decorating. So hard in a rental property when your hearts not here but I'm sure I'll come up with something. Tis fun! xReplyDelete
Well, I like the looks of your simple Christmas already! What a neat ornament idea.ReplyDelete
What a lovely idea :) xReplyDelete
