Crafty Christmas – U Magazine feature

This time last month I spent the afternoon with the lovely Nathalie and Ben while they took pictures of my Christmas spread. I was very excited when Nathalie approached me to be part of U Magazine‘s crafty Christmas feature because let’s face it – I’m tore up from the floor up for  both Christmas and making stuff with my hands so that was a no-brainer. Not to mention it was an excuse to crack out the Christmas decorations and mull into some mulled wine a month early …
The DIY and handmade pieces that are featured above are my DIY edible ornaments {serious nom}, my seasonal switch plates as well as a glimpse of our Christmas bar cart
Some more decorations that are included on our tree but are way too tiny in the picture {they’re there, trust me} – give a lease of new life to old decorations with some custom revamped Christmas decorations, my easy-peasy hydrangea Christmas ornaments, some straw himmeli ornaments {I just made teeny versions}, and my deceptive dust covers.

The current issue of U Magazine is on shelves now, should you like to take a closer gander at all the amazing crafty Christmas features. And be sure to tune in on Friday where I’ll be sharing my five steps to a festive table! Happy holidays 🙂 xx A
