Making decorations

Postby Carolyn » Mon Oct 31, 2011 10:09 pm

Is anyone having a go at making decs for their trees this year.

I fancy trying to make some cupcakes - no idea how or why - but saw some in a shop in the US last week and thought it could be fun to try!

Did find this:

and also this:

but maybe need some UK ideas as they are using products I don't know the UK equivalent.

:) There are all sorts of decorations in M & S that have a handmade feel about them - felt and fabric made ones - anyone making anything traditional or otherwise?

I found some fabric with Victorian-style motifs on it. If I was any good with a sewing machine I'd put two back to back with a bit of ribbon and some felt or something to make them a little fatter than the two layers of fabric. I reckon they'd be nice for a tree.

I might send Nicki some fabric so she can make some to help with postage.

I have started a tradition of doing a little cross stitch tree decoration each year for my granddaughter. All being well I will buy a Baby's First Christmas for the new little one this year and then I will be make two decorations each year after that ...will have to remember to put their names on them!!!

The cupcake ingredients are easy - foam wall filler for the cake and polyfiller - premixed in pot or tube for the icing - I quite like that idea.....
