Earlier this month I had a go at turning these ...
into this ...
I was inspired by Betty Crafter's Wreaths on her fabulous blog, all her Xmas makes and finds are retro to die for, do take a look.
I started with a polystyrene wreath form and wrapped it in tinsel. Then it was just a case of hot glue gunning everything into place - with a designer's eye (ahem).
I did wire the deer and her fawn to stop them straying.
I'm pleased to say all the baubles were bought from Charity Shops - if you get there early enough in December you'll find the cream of the vintage crop for next to nothing. The deer came from a vintage fair - a good price too as these are getting quite pricey on the likes of eBay and Etsy.
Then ... as tis the Season ... I had a wonderful day of edible crafting over at Gail's of One Million Gold Stars.
Gail had pre-prepared the cookie dough, you can find her reproduction of the recipe and instructions on Domestic Sluttery. All I had to do was cut and decorate and with Gail's guidance I had a go at floating the icing so the biscuits are covered uniformly. We then
ate went to town with sprinkles and baubles.
Happy Holidays Everybody
