DIY Concrete and Plaster Christmas Tree Decorations

It’s no secret that I love rustic, tactile materials – from Harris tweed and Icelandic wool, to plywood and chipboard. There’s just something about these materials I can’t get enough of… is it the quality, or how hard-wearing they are? Or just the feel of them; that slightly course tactility? I don’t know. But I do know that I wanted to incorporate these kinds of materials to my Christmas decor this year! With this in mind, I decided to make…

DIY Holly Leaf Bow Tie

Last month, I shared a Bat Bow Tie tutorial – and you guys loved it! You tagged me in a bunch of photos of your own bat bows, which was great to see.

Candy Cane Christmas breadsticks recipe

The other day, the awesome Holly Of All Trades invited a bunch of bloggers round for a lil’ Christmas soirée. ‘Tis the season, after all! We each brought a dish of some sort; from canapés and cheeseboards, to cookies and caramels. I knew I wanted to bring something with a little festive twist, so I whipped up a batch of candy cane Christmas breadsticks. They’re a little imperfect (shall we say rustic?), so I was in two minds about blogging them. But I…

DIY personalised Christmas jumper decorations

Last weekend, I had some friends round to stay for a couple of nights. It was the first time in freaking aaaages that I’ve seen them, and it was awesome! We spent the weekend browsing Christmas markets, scoffing homemade pizza and catching up. Perfect weekend really. As a little welcome gift for when they came to stay, I decided to make some DIY Christmas jumper decorations. I do think it’s little things like this that make guests feel extra welcome when they visit. I even personalised their decorations with…
