Let it snow!
THIS festive season gives us a great chance to not only adorn our homes with pretty decorations, but also to get our creative juices flowing and create adornments ourselves. Other than saving us a lot of money, making ornaments instead of buying them from shops provides an opportunity for the entire family to get involved in some fun ... plus, every time you look at these ornaments, you feel a sense of achievement!
When one mentions Christmas, one of the first images to pop in our minds is that of a figure of stacked balls of white snow with tree branches for arms and a carrot for a nose and a nice, smart top hat … yes, the snowman. And that’s why I decided to make my own snowman to decorate my home. All I needed was an old paper bag, coloured paper and some imagination ... and in a short while, I had something to hang in front of my front door to welcome people inside.
I hope you like my Snowman and that many families will have fun decorating their homes this Christmas.
