Distributed throughout the year, there are only two occasions, for which I decorate my apartment: the beginning of summer and Christmas. Easter, Fall, Halloween and Co. have no place in my apartment but when the Christmas season approaches I run amok and my inner serenity and equanimity take a leave for a few months. In January I’m back to normal but until then there will be plenty of Christmas decoration. Hooray!
Materials and tools
A branch, a saw with guide…
…white paint, a small brush, scissors, a pen, a pencil, yarn or thin rope…
…a power drill…
…and a printed little snowflake (see Goggle Images).
First I sawed the branch into thin slices. How thin the slices should be is a matter of taste.
With the power drill I then drilled tiny holes in the wood.
At last I transferred the template to the wood with THIS method, painted my snowflakes (super easy) with a brush and tied small loops with yarn.
Originally I wanted the ornaments for my Christmas tree but maybe I use them as gift tags. Fortunately I still have some time left to decide.
