Our house is starting to look rather festive, and I’ve been having a little sort out along the way. Most of our decorations are donations, or looking very tired. I’m very traditional when it comes to decorating our (always chosen by Jared) tree. I love green, red, gold and the fairy lights have to be white. I love woodland animals, cinnamon sticks, gingerbread and dried oranges. The last couple of years, the boys have chosen a decoration each for the tree. Safe to say a sparkly car is not what I’d choose to have on our tree, but the two eldest really love it…and somehow manage to remember it exists.
This year I decided to buy our first set of baubles. I couldn’t decide what to go for, then had the idea to get fillable (glass lookalikey) ones, and I am really pleased with how they turned out. They look like giant bubbles and I can fill them with something different every year. Eco friendly dontcha think? This year I’ve gone for pussy willow, eucalyptus, fir and green foliage. I changed the silver ribbon for twine, persevered with squeezing everything through the small opening and ta-da – they’re done.
One sure thing, is that these are for me – not the kids, and there will be no glitter in sight!
What would you fill yours with?
