My Handmade Christmas

I was a bit late putting up the Christmas decorations this year but I finally got them up about a week ago. Most of my decorations are things I've made over the years and just keep putting up every year. Most years I add to them but this year haven't had time to make any extra decorations.

Here's a look at some of them. This Santa was given to me and I'm still not sure if I like the look of him or not. He looks kind of scary to me but his beard is so soft.

We always had a natural Christmas tree but some years ago I bought this artificial one, it's not the same as having a real one but so much more convenient. We have a large mirror in the sitting room so I always put the tree up in front of it. Makes it look like I have two trees.
Next year I have to make a new tree skirt. With the exception of the star and the glass baubles all the decorations have been made by me.

This wreath is just a metal coat hanger covered in tinsel and a ribbon added.
The penguin belonged to the kids when they were small.

This fabric tree comes out every Christmas. I made it about 17 years ago from a coat my mum made me.

And I couldn't have Christmas without my dear 21 year old robin. He looks pretty good for his age. LOLL
