Blogmas 2017 #7: A peek into my Christmas home

Today, I’m offering you a rare glimpse into my home and my Christmas home decoration. I don’t have any particular theme going on since I’m a rather impulsive shopper. I do the main bit of decorating in the living room and the dining area, but occasionaly I put decorations in other rooms as well. Naturally, I’m not showing you everything, but enough to satisfy those of you who’re more curious by heart.

This is our dining room centerpiece this year, made by the incredible Marjan Lovšin. The flowers are real and waxed so I’m curious to see how it will dry out. I love the little Christmas house in the center as well.

This is Clarence. He doesn’t exactly fit the theme but Baby M loves him so we put him up besides  the window.

I love candles. Normally, I’m a big fan of Yankee Candles and have quite the collection, but last winter I discovered the WoodWick candles which cracle as they burn and smell amazing. I’m half way done with my second one so I’m hoping that Santa noticed I need a new one.

There’s always an overload of presents under the Christmas tree and since they’re mostly for children, the wrappings are in numerous colors and prints. Therefore, I like to keep the tree more minimalistic as most people. I really love this little snowman and I hope that Baby M doesn’t get any weird ideas with the tree because I’d be sorry to see it go. He’s been acting nice so far so fingers crossed we have no accidents this year.

A poinsettia is a must in our home and I usually go through at least two of them. This year, this one is holding up incredibly well so hopefully, she’ll be with us for a long time. The bowl next to pointsettia sometimes holdes tangerines and sometimes candy – depending on my mood.

I have this beautiful lamp on the piano and normally it doesn’t get much love. Since I really like this corner of the living room, I decided to put some small lights on it to make it stand out a little bit more.

Blogmas #6 – DIY natural christmas ornaments

DIY natural christmas ornaments

Another day, another Blogmas. I must admit that this December is going by so quickly I’m hardly keeping track as it is. Next week, the real party season starts so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I manage to finish the entire Blogmas as I intially intended. Today, I want to show you how to make really simple DIY natural christmas ornaments.

DIY natural christmas ornaments

For the ones I want to show you, you’ll need some glitter (or glitter glue), oranges, walnuts, scissors, glue gun (or superglue) and string. You’ll also need the ingredients to make the salty dough: 300g of salt, 300g of white flour, a tablespoon of oil and 2dl of water.

Dry oranges are literally the simplest christmas decoration, but I personally love the way they look. Cut the oranges into thin slices and dry them overnight on a body of heat. Pierce them with a knife to cut holes for a simple string. You can also decorate them with glitter or leave them bare – they’ll look cute either way.

The same can be done with walnuts, but you’ll need a glue gun or a superglue to hold the strings in place. Remember to ask an adult to help you with this if you’re not used to handling hot glue.

These ornaments are done from the salty dough. You simply mix all the ingredients together, roll the dough and use some stencils to cut out the desired shapes. Then, bake them at 180* for 20 minutes or so and let them dry. You can them color them with glitter, nail polish or whatever else you have lying around the house.
