The day before Christmas

DSC_1209-2

Sorry that we have not been updating as regularly as we would have liked! We are both taking a bit of a break to spend time with family and do all those last minute christmas things. I ended up making more of those tiny cardboard christmas trees and I am really happy with them! Did any of you end up trying to make these at home?

Anyway, to combat the darkness in Stockholm right now I am burning all my favourite candles, drinking lots of christmas tea from Indiska, and reading a swedish novel today.

Hope you guys are enjoying your holidays and spending time with friends and family.

DIY christmas trees

Last picture comes from: Seventy-nine ideas

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to spruce up your christmas table this year look no further than these small cardboard trees inspired by Soffa Magazine. This is by far one of the easiest DIYs I have ever done.

All you need is:

White cardboard

A pencil

Scissors

A ruler

To make one christmas tree:

Using a ruler and pencil draw an outline of a christmas trees making sure that all the edges are reasonably straight. Using your scissors, cut the christmas tree out and then use it as a stencil to draw the next one and then cut the second tree out (this is so that both tree cut-outs are the same shape).

Once you have both of the tree cut-outs, cut a straight line half-way through the middle one of the christmas tree cut-outs (from the top of the tree to the middle).

Using the other tree cut-out cut a straight line from the bottom of the tree roughly two-thirds of the way up.

Assemble the two pieces together and you’re done!

If you have the time and patience make several of these in different sizes and scatter them as a centrepiece on your table.

DIY Christmas gift tags

DSC_1136DSC_1144DSC_1143

If you are like me and have not wrapped your christmas presents (or even bought them yet!) then take a moment to consider making your own gift tags rather than buying expensive or often tacky, christmas tags. These are simple and inexpensive and I even made mine while watching a movie on the couch.

All you need is:

Cardboard (White, green, red or whatever colours you want really)

Scissors

A gluestick

A pencil

Washi tape (optional)

This probably does not require much explanation, but simply cut cardboard into small rectangles and fold into mini cards. Then use a pencil to draw out shapes such as christmas trees, letters, or animals. Cut them out using your scissors and glue them onto your mini cards.

Another option is to use washi tape (instead of cardboard and glue) and simply cut the tapes into shapes (see the spotted christmas tree above).

Simple as pie!!

Now time to get your creative on!
