It’s that time again! Have you eaten the first chocolate from your Advent Calendar yet? We are now on the final run down to the ‘Big Day’, and there is always so much to do, isn’t there? Last year’s Planet Penny Advent Calendar was lots of fun, a daily post with a craft, decoration or recipe.
This year I’ve rather less time available, alas, but I’m planning an Advent Calendar reprise, the Christmas Countdown – with added extras!
Everyday I’ll be bringing you seasonal pictures, ideas and links which I hope will give some inspiration, and something to enjoy when you take a well earned break from the festivities! Just click on the images below to find the source and instructions where available
I do like to add a little individuality to my gift wrapping, but it does mean some forward planning. Last year I utilised a large roll of lovely brown paper which is so much cheaper than the glossy printed variety.
I should imagine it’s much more ecologically friendly too.
There’s masses of scope for imaginative decorations, and great fun if you get the children involved with cutting out and printing and the compulsory glue/ glitter combo! And how about the good old potato print?
You could use old comics, colour supplements or magazines…
Or raid your sewing basket.
This is a great way to uses your odds and ends of Planet Penny Cotton!
I do love a pompom!
…and these are so simple, but very stylish.
I hope you enjoy the links and they inspire the imagination.
I’m linking up today with Handmade Harbour for Handmade Monday, so do call over there for more inspirational links…
I’ll see you tomorrow!
