Early Christmas Makes...

It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts today and our theme is 'Early Christmas Makes' hosted by the lovely Mervi. Our wonderful sponsor is Flonzcraft.

I decided to make a festive decoration. I found a bare wood Christmas tree shape by Papermania for 89p and coloured it in with Promarkers. The colour took really well, I wasn't sure if it would. I decorated the tree simply with a couple of crackers (cut with a die) and buttons and threaded some bells through my hanging ribbon and twine...

Decoration - Christmas Tree by Papermania (got mine from Hobbycraft) coloured with Promarkers (Pine, Cocoa & Cinnamon)
Cracker die - Joanna Sheen (a snip at £1.99 and cuts beautifully)
Buttons - Dovecraft
Ribbon, twine & bells - stash

Please do come and join us over at Allsorts this week for our challenge x
