DIY Garland

Follow Me on Pinterest

Here's a little quick an easy DIY project that will brighten up a room. I hadn't made a pom pom for a while and have been staring at all these beautiful coloured wools on my shelf. Just winking at me and asking me to do something with them.
So here's how to make a simple pom pom garland. Make some pom poms, thread them together using a tapestry needle. In between each pom pom I threaded a pearl but you could add anything in-between or use different size pom poms. It really looked fab hanging anywhere, from the curtain pole, draped over a picture, I settled for hanging it off a fireplace mantle. 
A bit of everyday decoration.

Mama Style

Follow Me on Pinterest

Spring is so so far away but it seems a shame to just keep these crazy trousers for those sunny times of the year, especially in England where it feels like the sun never shines. Who says that you can't wear crazy colours in winter, it definitely cheers you up and everyone around you too. I certainly got some funny looks today and some smiles. The one great thing I love about wearing something a bit bright or silly is that its a great conversation starter and I get chatting to some really great people because  of it.

So come on dig out those crazy bits and make your winter wardrobe fun. x

Every home needs some shiny balls!

Follow Me on Pinterest

Yes you did read that right. I love a shiny disco ball and in the Christmas sales I found  two more sizes to add to my collection. These will be a permanent fixture and be a bit of everyday decoration to beat the January blues. I think they look fab in the fireplace and its a bit of different look from stacked wood and candles. I am finding it so hard to get into gear this month and hated taking down the decorations as per usual. A few have stayed though, a disco ball here and some fairy lights there. 
Why not every days a celebration right ?x

Funny Faces

Follow Me on Pinterest

We have so much cardboard, paper and plastic left over from Christmas that I thought I must find something inspiring to do with all this rubbish. So say hello to our "funny face maker" that I made out of a cardboard box. All you need is some cardboard, paint, a pencil, scissors and a scalpel. Just cut out a circle for a face base. Then draw on some separate card all different sized facial features, cut out them out and paint. For hair pipe cleaners are amazing and good old wool for hair and beards. Rex loved it and extra brownie points its educational too. x
