All things christmas begins

This is how I spent my Sunday afternoon-
My Husband, his brother and myself spent about three hours making this in my mother in law's front garden. I might mention that our average age is 30 and a bit :)

I usually hate snow but I really had a blast making this. Poor lulla manulla was desperate to come out and play but every time MIL brought her out she limped cause the snow was cold on her feet. I'm going to have to make her some wellies :)

Friday night was the christmas party for work. As usual I got the job of making the table names.
I wanted something unusual so after a bit of google searching I decided to go with the baubles method.

good old pound shop baubles (excuse the shaky photos- I don't remeber drinking but never mind)

some cheap 20 gauge wire and some laminated print outs.

Fill the baubels with sugar so that they stand up- and.......

Ta da!

I made 32 of these beauties and they went down so well that at least three people tried to steal them! To prevent a fight I had to promise to make 19 more for one of the guys on the shop floor.
I think I'm going to make these to sell next year.
