Christmas crafting

Last night my friend organised a craft evening at our church, for all the women in their church and their friends. There were about 30 women there and we got to choose whether we wanted to make a Christmas tree from a paperback book, a paper Christmas wreath or a fir cone.  I chose the fir cone option and here it is!

It was pretty easy to make. Just a matter of folding lots of 2″ squares into triangles and then pinning them to a polystyrene egg. Here’s a YouTube video explaining it:

She also showed us how to make christmas baubles with ribbons using a similar technique of folding and pinning to a polystyrene ball. I might pop to Hobbycraft or the Range at the weekend and pick up a ball, so I can have a go at them. They looked particularly effective!
