I LOVE Christmas! It really is a wonderful time of year. I love how every family has their own traditions and beliefs to make it truly magical for them.
My most favourite tradition in our family is that we celebrate a Handmade Christmas.
Between us adults, we exchange handmade goodies. They can either be made by us, or made by others – but not shop bought.
This year, Mr 10 joined in the making. Now before I go any further – by his request – he requires me to publicly say I was wrong.
They made us this Macramé candle holder!! I am in love!
He was so proud of himself. He made some more for the family. We potted up some plants though instead of candles.
They were a massive hit with everyone! We plan on making more for our garden over the school holidays. (Stay tuned for that one!)
Here’s some more of the handmade gifts that were exchanged:
And there was some other bits and pieces that I forgot to photograph on the day!
I’m a little sad it’s all over and done with now. I guess I’ll have to start thinking about some cool things to start making for Easter!
Hope you all had a great Chrissy! What little traditions do you have? Did you share any handmade gifts? Tell me all about it in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by!
