Blogmas Day 13- DIY Christmas Cards!

Hey hey you you!

It’s the 13th day, I’ve managed 13 days of blogmas! Yay for me! 

And today, it is time for a little bit of DIY. Now, I love DIY, I am a firm believer that a little bit of craft is the best stress reliever (ooh that rhymed!). I love making things so Christmas time presents me with many opportunities to do this, which is just so exciting! 

To make these cards I used:

  • Pack of 5 plain cards from paperchase
  • Fine rose gold glitter from paperchase
  • Black Sparkly ribbon (part of a pack of 3) from paperchase
  • Scissors
  • Printed shapes (e.g. Star and Tree)

I mean, my technique wasn’t anything really to rave about. I basically held the template down with blu tac and glued around it, and then threw glitter at the card to create the bottom design:

For the other two designs, I used the template from the first as the main feature by simply gluing over it, dipping it in glitter and gluing it to the card, simple enough!

Although I do realise these could be a little neater, I’m not a neat person so I absolutely adore the slight messiness! The glitter quality is beautiful and I only needed half a pack for all of my crafts, I massively over-anticipated how much I would need and bought three packs! 

That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed reading and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Love always,

Blogmas Day 3- DIY Christmas Decorations!


Welcome to Day 3, I hope you’ve been loving Blogmas so far! Today I’m going to try out a few DIY Christmas decoration ideas that I found on Pinterest. Ok, here we go…

Glitter Tree Decorations

Inspired by a post from Emily-Alice, these glitter decorations were super easy to make and look so cute on my tree!

All you need is:

  • Card
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Ribbon (for hanging from a tree!)
  • Pencil (for drawing outlines and making the hole!).

Simply cut a shape of your desire out of the card, cover it in glue and then glitter it! If you want to be really inventive, you could even try to make patterns with different colours of glitter.

Once they’ve dried (I left mine over night to be sure) make a small hole in your shape and thread a piece of ribbon through. Then use this to tie to your tree!

And there you have it, your own glitter decorations!

 Glitter Pinecones

This is a super easy technique, but I absolutely love the outcome! Best of all, this was super cheap to make!

All you need is:

  • A packet of pine cones (or you can get some from the outdoors if you want)
  • Glue
  • Glitter

I chose a rose-gold glitter for these and simply covered the edges in glue. I then dipped them into a pot of glitter and ta-da! I absolutely adore these and cannot wait to dot them around in blog photos and around my home!

Ribbon Wreath

What you need:

  • A wreath (I chose polystyrene)
  • Ribbon of different sizes/colours/patterns
  • Scissors

I got all of this from Amazon pretty easily and cheaply!

That’s it, so a pretty low cost make!

Ok this one is really simple, all you do is take the wreath and tie your ribbon around it, for example..

You want the ribbon ends to stick out, but if they’re a little too long, feel free to trim them!

And continue this until you have filled the whole wreath!

After you’ve filled the wreath full of ribbon, you need to make a hanging loop! For this, take a thinner and longer piece of ribbon and tie it around in the same way as before, except this time you need to tie the loose ends together to make a loop!

And there you have it! A DIY ribbon wreath!



As always, thank you for reading! I hope this post has inspired some Christmas creativity within you! Don’t forget to stick around for the rest of Blogmas.
