Seeing Stars

Gosh!  What a rainy grey day!

Rufus and I have just cuddled down, made a nest and started to make some Christmas decorations.

Last week I ordered many red coloured wallpaper samples from Wallpapersdirect with an idea to make some star & heart shaped christmas garlands.

Today we started...

Whilst watching Octonauts (love this show!), we hole punched tiny hearts and stars out of the wallpaper.  My favourite was the paisley design above as it made interesting coloured stars.

Then I sewed them together on my sewing machine, using a simple running stitch.  Stopping to add each star point first as it fed through easier that way.

Such a happy and colourful task.  Little confetti on my table.

Then using stickydots (like bluetac but clear) I stuck the garlands to my mantlepiece.

I love the result.  Such a quick and easy way to add Christmas to my home.

Don't panic, I haven't decorated for Christmas yet, just for the purposes of the photo!
