Our Homemade Christmas Tree

Well this months crafts are centred around Christmas  (of course) and making our bamboo Christmas tree. We were sent a lovely little box of bits and bobs as part of out Bostik Bloggers December Challenge and some great glue products.



I had made a little tree form bamboo sticks to pop above our kitchen table for  all the handmade ornaments (at 16p a stick from the hardware store it is pretty thrifty!)

My son made the fab toadstool decoration for our tree out of air drying clay (using a cookie cutter) and used the glitter glue on the top and painted the bottom white once dry.

I think it looks rather awesome!



Using the glue we had been sent we made a little baby Jesus and angel and also a couple of tags.




We so enjoy crafting together, having a good chat and seeing what we can come up with. Using good products makes it all so much easier.

The glue pen was great it had a fat end and a thin end for when you want a tighter application. no mess at all with hat or the glitter pens and glitter normally gets everywhere!

    I love that tree and the decorations too. I have some clay sitting in my cupboard, might be time to dig it out!
