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…

Mini Christmas wreath decorations DIY

Craft inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places. Take these mini Christmas wreath decorations, for instance. Can you guess what they’re made from? Curtain rings! Yep, those little hoops that are used to hang curtains onto a curtain rod. Turns out that they’re the ideal size for mini Christmas decorations! I’ve had a bunch of these curtain rings stored in my studio since we moved in to our new house last year. They’ve been patiently waiting for months, just waiting for…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

For me, November is a month of transformation. I always start off the month in a haze of post-Halloween blues, desperately wishing for autumn to last a little longer. However, by the end of the month I’m usually in full-on Christmas mood! It’s weird to go from one extreme to the other in the space of just weeks, but I roll with it. This year, we broke tradition and put up the decorations a little early (although based on my Instagram feed, it would…
