Lovely thread @kath72 , and very pretty candle holders. I've got loads of those glass jars, (i eat far too many of those GÜ desserts) and just use them to put nibbles in for the kids, cheddars, cheeselets, that sort of thing, but i'll definitely try something like this now.

So many creative people on gg sharing ideas and pics, this will be a great thread running up to the festive season.

I used to make decorations for the Christmas tree, and loved it, but i don't seem to have the motivation lately. This thread might just be what i need to start it all again Smiley Happy

Yes I did @paul_d_ cheers. Once a sparky, always a sparky. I had to pay 2 quid for that soup here in NZ! 


Here are a couple more I made out of Moroccan candle lanterns. Converted them to 240 volt, touch  lamps with 2 watt bulbs.

I'm not good at making things but I do love to see all your wonderful creations. 

No cards on here yet but they're a popular hobby where I work. 


Anyone making cards?

Ooooh - like this thread.  I needle felted a robin last year which I was quite pleased with.  Only stabbed myself about 3 times which I understand is good for a first timer!  I will post a pic of him when I locate him

I'm told i'm quite creative, but i've never tried to make Christmas decorations. I'll put my thinking cap on and see what i can come up with Smiley Happy

They are lovely, well done. I bought some miniature wooden pegs that are numbered 1 - 24, I am trying to think of some nice advent creation to make with them🤔

I’ve been flavouring some gin with blueberries & added sugar. Will strain & put in little wine bottles as presents.

@paul_d_ yes, made the jewellery myself. I use wire for the more structured pieces and something called tiger 🐯 tail for the more relaxed pieces.
