Howdy there possums and hope you are all ok xx
The prodigal pig returns and shock horror, I have actually made something. Well this isn't strictly true cos I have been making lots of stuff but nothing that I could really blog.
So what has dragged me back to the land of the crafty then?
Well it's that time of the week when we nip over and check out what's happening over at Papertake Weekly and this week we have our very popular
challenge. And as always there's an optional extra if you want a bit of a challenge and this week our option is to make a Halloween treat holder. But of course you don't have to if you don't want to.
Our fab DT have made some lovely stuff as always, so if you get a sec, nip over for a mooch. We're sponsored by Lili of The Valley and there's a yummy voucher up for grabs - thanks girlies :)xx
So what did I do then?
Well I didn't do the Halloween thing - instead I went for Christmas and I made ....
... a wreath made out of paper stars.
Now I have to say that IRL it look much better than it does on here. I also have to say that I saw something similar ages ago on a blog but I have looked and looked and can I find it? I will keep looking and I will give the rightly deserved credit when I find it.
ETA the tutorial is here
The stars are very easy to make - you just fold them and glue them onto a chipboard ring which I covered with blue stars first. They are a bit fiddly to stick down, I won't lie. But I found it even trickier to get a decent pic because I had to hang it on my lounge wall against a backdrop that is a greyish white, and I HATE backgrounds that don't look clean in me photos :( It was quite high up and I had to stand on tip toes to take it as well.
Excuses excuses, but I hope you can see what its all about.
... a close up of the stars.
You basically score each point all the way across the star and then just fold then like you can see on here. If I get a sec (hahaaa!!) I will do a tutorial because they do look fabulous (just not in my pics lol!!)
The gorgeous bow was made from 25mm white plain sheer ribbon which of course I got from The Ribbon Girl and the lovely sparklers are rhinestone sparklers from The Hobby House (aren't they just blingtastic!!)
So that's me all done for today and it's nice to back I have to say. I will try me best not to leave it too log before I post again and I'll see you soon as soon, if not sooner.
Extra huggiest of hugs to all xxxx
