When Hobbycraft sent me a selection of their paint your own wood Christmas decorations, they were immediately hijacked by the twins, who were adamant that the decorating duties should be all theirs. Given their level of enthusiasm, we made ‘Christmas decoration making’ one of their advent activities this week, and they had an absolute ball. With a load of craft materials at their disposal, including felt tips, PVA glue, glitter, googly eyes, tissue paper and fabric and ribbon offcuts we left them to it, and they were so chuffed with their finished decorations.
And that lovely tree they’re hanging on? That’s from Hobbycraft too and I couldn’t believe it when I checked the price and discovered it’s only £20. Admittedly up close it’s a plasticky version of the paper trig trees that I adore, but I think it’s fantastic value and it currently has pride of place on our kitchen island (complete with the homemade decs).
