Christmas decorations

Bobble branches

This week I've slowly been decorating around myself, trying to make everywhere feel more festive and exciting. For the first time I've made loads of paper decorations, I haven't made paper snowflakes since I was at school.

Out of all the decorations my favourite are the flower pom poms. I followed a DIY and it said they're supposed to look very similar to Dahlias, but I think mine look more like water lilies. I'm not bothered that they didn't turn out the same as the DIY, I really like them. For my first flower I used tissue paper just like the instructions said as I wanted to see how it would turn out. For the rest though I used newspaper, I thought newspaper would work well as it's not too thick and I wanted to use up some I had lying around waiting to be recycled. I think they turned out well.
I found the DIYs online from Martha Stewart, and there are a lot more christmas themed crafts on their site:
* Tissue paper pom poms
* Paper snowflakes (glitter garland)
* Make your own snowglobe (I really wanted to make one but didn't have all the stuff to make it)
