It's been great reading your feedback on Christmas song list. I'm happy to hear you all love oldies the best- they are after all essential part of Christmas:)
As promised; another DIY. Coming closer to Christmas is when I feel very inspired to do everything by hand, if it's presents or pastry.
First one is Cookie Box. You can be more original and go for home-made cookies but for this DIY I went with ones from the store. If you're wondering- these are oat cookies with milk chocolate on one side and are too delicious!
Second one is Candy Sleigh. How cute is that? This one is made for children. When I saw it on Pinterest I knew I had to try it out. You only need candy- I've chosen candy cane and mini version of chocolate bar for a base. Then I just piled other candy on top. I used scotch tape to glue everything together.
Third one is my favourite- Surprise Jar. I used crystals (red heart shaped, blue and clear ones), super glue, tea lights, candy and other gifts. I first applied all the crystals in random pattern I chose. This part took the longest because heart crystals were heavy and they kept falling off (or the glue was out of date). But after that it gets easy. I filled the jar with gifts and most importantly I made sure not to forget tea lights because when all gifts are used or eaten, you can reuse the jar as a decoration! When tea lights are lit, candlelight gives beautiful pattern on whatever base it's standing on.
What do you think? Which one is your favourite gift? Will you be making hand-made gifts this year?
