Have you been feeling it? The itch in your hip pocket? A longing to delve in and be part of the tinsel-shimmering-bling-blinding buying? I know I have.
We're bombarded with ideas and images of the perfect Christmas - from endless catalogues, blogs and magazines -
and there is no doubt it leads to the same end;consumerism. Suddenly we
desire a new colour scheme of ornaments, a new wreath - and then there is the wrapping embellishments, cards, tags etc - it's endless!!!
I'm trying to come up with low cost and low carbon footprint ideas for Christmas fun. And while I acknowledge I have the benefit of a large supply of craft staples and tools, I still think it's possible to keep it eco.
For that winter wonderland magic turn your freezer bags into snowball pom poms.
Roll 2 plastic bags up from bottom to top and cut into strips about 1 cm wide. I then used a 5.5cm pom pom maker to make these very fluffy snowy pom poms.
These would look great on a tree or as a garland or even a wreath...."let it snow, let it snow, let it snow"....is it too early for Christmas Carols? Yeah...it is. I know.
