Christmas from my Garden

Taking time off from orders this Sunday I made some festive decorations for my home.  A small Wreath made from foliage and rose hips picked from my garden finished off with my "Dream of Bunnies" Ornament (available here in my Shop as a Kit & PDF).

The owl was a lovely gift from the sweet Suzy at The Enchanted Pumpkin

An embroidered heart as a custom order

I made this glass jam pot cover simply by wrapping ivy & string around the top (keep candles well away from this!).  Then simply using craft punches added a design on white paper. This could be done simply cutting out patterns with scissors too.  

I hope you are all enjoying the build up to Christmas time. 
I'd love to know what hand made items you are making this year?

I have just sat down and spent a bit of time going through your beautiful blog. Your picture and hand made items are lovely. I live fairly near Waddesdon Manor and went to see their Christmas display a few years's amazing. I will be back to read more of your posts soon. Have a wonderful Christmas!
