DIY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS





This is the first Christmas that Brendon and I will spend together as a married couple... And it's also the first year we're having the family get together at our place! So I'm especially excited for all the festivities. I decided that I wanted to make a unique tree with handmade decorations that suit us and our wee house. They're not exactly the typical Christmas look but I'm quite fond of how they turned out :)




You'll need:
Some paper to rip up to papier-maché with, glue (I find wheat-based adhesive best for this type of project), plain baubles or polystyrene balls, masking tape, cotton/string, pens and paint.

If your bauble doesn't already have string attached you can make a loop with your cotton and secure it with masking tape. Then rip up your paper and cover the entire ball. I used an old text book that was gathering dust in my garage. Then use a pen or paint to do illustrations and text. I also found some spotty feathers that I added with a button on top to hide the join. And voila! Easy peasy.

  50. Perfect Keto Max Add one cheat day to your food regimen to rid your self of cravings. A wholesome breakfast is likely one of the key elements of a nutritious diet and consequential weight reduction. Well being weight reduction is the better alternative. Switching from a serving of flavored oatmeal to plain oats every morning saves you more than 20,000 energy over the course of a year - enough to lose more than 5 pounds with out making every other modifications to your food regimen. After weight loss, decrease-fats diets may be the very best. Most high-fiber meals are also excessive in water and low in energy, making them must-have food plan foods. So, these were, briefly, the advantages of body sculpting treatments over weight loss surgical procedures.
