Homemade Christmas Decorations

Lucinda loves collecting sticks so what better way to make use of them than making Christmas decorations?

First of all we collected lots of sticks of various lengths, widths and flexibility.



We fastened them together into rings and star shapes using gardening wire.



Then we went on another walk to find some holly and some berries (and to the shop for some tinsel!). When we got home we decorated the stick shapes.



I would have liked to have only used holly and berries and kept the decorations natural but it was also an activity for Lucinda and to save her getting prickled on the holly leaves I thought she'd like to decorate some herself with the tinsel. She wrapped the tinsel around the small stars by herself.


And here she is with the big star to show it's size. We are going to put it out in the front garden.
