December has arrived! I love Christmas time with all the family around and the fun and cheer that goes with it.Last weekend was wet and rainy, so I spent Saturday doing some Christmas and holiday craft prep.
The first thing I made was two Christmas wreaths. These were made from things that I mostly had at home.
I purchased two polystyrene rings from SpotLight. I had excess gold tinsel and some spare red and white flowers so the only other thing I had to purchase was some holly, this too was from Spotlight.
While at SpotLight I picked up some bargains on curtain fabric, which is just perfect for making table festive season tablecloths. As we usually have a big family Christmas, I always make two clothes one for our dining table and one for the trestle table extension. This is an economical way of having beautiful table linen at a cost-effective price.
Upcycling camping stools.
While I had the sewing machine out, I upcycled some of our old family camping stools that I found at Dads recently while cleaning out his garage. We used these stools 40 years ago as a family on our caravanning holidays. I had some leftover black and white canvas and made new tops for these stools, hopefully, another 40 years of holidays to come.
