And again THANK YOU a million for all your sweet well wishes and comments.
I really feel better now. :)
And today I'm ready to invite you HOME for Christmas :)
I have started decorating my home a little bit. It is tradition for alot of people in Norway to decorate the tree and most of the house on the 23rd. We celebrate christmas eve on the 24th.
But because I LOVE all this decorating and creating and this season SO much I start a little earlier putting up little by little of my decorations.
I made these cute paper trees, and they are now standing in my livingroom.
They are so fun to make, and can be made in many different ways.
I'll show you how I made my circle-tree. :)
You'll need a foam "tree" a pot, a little bit of Oasis, hot glue / gluegun, a 1 1/2 inch circle punch and LOTS of punchout paper-circles. I've used scraps of patterned paper to punch out circles. bead-headed pins (if you want)
Glue the circles on to the foam tree, and secure with pins if you like.
I started on the bottom of the tree and glued circles round and round in a kind of random way.
When you have covered the tree with circles you can add a little wooden stick on the bottom of the tree. I found a little branch from a tree in my garden. I tucked the stick into the tree and glued it to secure.
I put the Oasis in the pot and put the tree into the Oasis, and glued to secure. Then I found some nature fiber to cover the Oasis.
A fun little tree to brighten up your home :)
As you know I have this advent tradition with my kids, we do different kins of things every day in december as our calendar.
Recently we needle felted some woolen hearts.
They LOVE to needle felt, and we use to do this every year.
this is one of the things they are really looking foreward to.
I've put it up in my candelair over my dining table.
To needle felt is SO FUN and easy, and I tell you, even my husband loves it, and he have some skills! This year he felted an ice-bear. (I'll show you pictures another day)
Eirun is one of the master-felters in our family. Here is her heart that got wings :)
You need real lambs-wool, a styrofoam block to have under your project and a special felting needle. And then you just felt away! :)
