    A busy month for natural Christmas crafts

    Gosh that month went quickly! It’s a bit mad in the workshop at this time of year, and the time really flies.

    I am looking forward to getting our Christmas tree this week. I am hoping to get it from the local farm shop, and let my children decorate it. At 14 and 12 they are still not too old to feel the pull of chocolate baubles!

    Craft-wise, I have been making up kilo upon kilo of handmade Christmas potpourri for the workshop, and we have been making loads of cinnamon cones too.

    At home I have been preparing for the arrival of the tree by making some pine cone decorations with wire, paint and glitter.

    If you would like a break from all things Christmas this month, do check out my Pinterest page at www.pinterest.com/ruthdaisy where I have been uploading about six months worth of dried flowers photos.

     

    If you look on Pinterest, you will see all the lovely flowers I have been drying this summer. And this Fun with Dried Flowers post shows you what I have been doing with a few of them!
