Final Christmas Decoration

And we have come to the last day before Christmas! Hope you enjoyed all the DIYs and, unfortunetly, the only two outings we recorded. For the last day we have the final decorations here in our humble abode. Not everything is colour coordinated or perfect, but almost everything was made with love and dedication, because Christmas is definitely the best time of the year and we live to celebrate it! At least I do... I hope every single person who sees this has an amazing Christmas or any other celebration. We wish you all a merry Christmas and happy holidays! Don't forget to check the rest of the post!

Wrapping Presents

To end our Christmas crafts season I thought what better way of finishing it than with a classic wrapping presents session. This is a mandatory task as preparation for Christmas so we couldn't miss it. There are so many ways of doing this but we didn't want to spend a lot of money in wrapping paper that is only going to be thrown away right after opening the present, so we went with the simple craft paper and different cut ornaments to ornate the simple craft paper. Hope you get some inspiration from this post and be creative with the way you wrap your presents.

Continuing with the gift wrapping theme we brought today a really simple, but really cute diy for you to spruce up your wrapping. We used black and white card and two different types of string. We just spent a bit of time making all the stars with the star cutter and the just glued the stars on the string, is as simple as that! Exactly as the last diy we shared, it is perfect to do while watching a Christmas movie or listening to Christmas music while cookies are baking in the oven. You can even gather some friends and create a Christmas crafts afternoon. Hope you enjoy it!

Christmas Stickers

A big part of Christmas is the gift giving and so this year we decided to up our game by making our own Christmas stickers. We already had the paper so we just took out all of the BIC permanent markers with Christmas colours and started making Christmas trees, presents, wreaths, stars and even reindeers and bears. It is really simple to make and even if you don't have the proper paper you can just make them with normal paper and glue it to your presents. It is a very good thing to do on a rainy afternoon with children while watching a Christmas movie. Hope you enjoy it a do it at home!

Royal Arcade

Another very Christmassy place here in Norwich is the Royal Arcade. This year they decorated with christmas trees and letters coming from foliage garlands that go from one side of the arcade to the other. I think it feels quite magical and we all love a bit of magic. So we decided to stop take the camera and the sketchbook out and represented so it could stay in our memories forever. The shops were already closed when we stopped to sketch which is a shame but it is still beautiful. I have to say, we almost froze. It was really cold and because the arcade was almost empty we could really feel the cold wind. But after that we just went home and drank a big mug of hot chocolate! Hope you enjoy it.
