Origami wreath

Following the tutorial by Domesticali I today produced a few wreaths for my room to get into the Christmas spirit =)

These are very easy to make and look quite nice. Just take care when handling the finished thing as they tend to fall apart quite easily!

My pieces of Christmas wrapping paper after step 2:

The finished wreaths:

Afterwards I used, as suggested in the tutorial, an embroidery cotton to hang it up =)

Big plans

This weekend I am so busy I sadly won’t have the time to spare to get out my sewing machine and start a new project. But with all these great tutorials around I have already composed a list of future projects I hope to realize soon. And as we all know, Christmas is also coming up sooner or later. Better start now… 😉

Projects I’d love to get my hands on:

Oh, and check out this site which features wonderful diy projects. It just makes me want to refurnish my flat, reuse old furniture, create decorative items…

One more thing:

I’ve been thinking for a long time about doing my first roast chicken as I have never tackled one of those before. I found this recipe that is labeled “foolproof” and might just be the one for me. 😉

I’ll let you know if it worked for me too once I get the time and the occasion to try it out.
