Christmas Countdown – Day Twelve

This time last year there were a lot of robins twittering around on Planet Penny so I thought I’d include them in the Christmas Countdown.  I haven’t had time to make any this year, and I really miss them so this is a good excuse to have them on the blog!

Today for the Countdown I found some mini wreaths, just the right size for the Christmas Tree.  I made these for our local Christmas Fair last year.  Very simple and effective – hooray for the trusty glue gun!

I have a box of rather old and tatty curtain rings tucked away, this next image  has given me lots of ideas for recycling them, using an assortment of pretty oddments from the ‘Bits and Bobs’ box.
