Christmas crafts tips

My best tip is to do one job at a time. Gather the family and let everyone join. The little craftmanship itself and daring to let the imagination go its own way is more important than a precise result. Dare to play and have fun, even you as an adult. Test! The best thing about this type of toy is that you can use a whole lot of what you have at home. It is not very much, really needed. Want more tips - follow me on instagram @caroline.malmsjö

 

Spicy paper spruces

How to use:

  1.     Cut out template/templates in harder cardboard and draw from a bunch (about 10 pieces) or cut directly on freehand. Keep in mind that all parts need to be neatly cut.
  2.     Fold the shingles in the middle. Fold inwards so that the pattern or coloured side comes in.
  3.     Then glue one side and attach a new part on top. Repeat until your you have the last two to stick together.
  4.     Put a string of glue in the middle and attach the straw/grill stick. Then you glue the last parts together.
  5.     Find a perfect pot for your spruce-fir or make your own winter landscape with many.

How to use:

Glue magnets to your Christmas balls and allow drying. Then you put the wire on the wall, pick up the Christmas card or whatever you want to put up, and then you put on your Christmas ball magnets. Of course, you can also use the magnets directly on the refrigerator, at work or the like.

Tow roller animals

The perfect family puzzle with the children, even the smallest people like this. And toilet rolls are easy to save. You can make all kinds of animals - yes, a whole circus or why not a Lucia train! Here is an example of a pair of reindeer. You can use the rolls natural or paint them with hobby paint first. Make foxes, pandas, unicorns, robots, rabbits, bats. Only the imagination stops. Use glitter paper, decor rubber, buttons, pipe cleaners, fabric, yarn - yes most things can be used - to pimp your toilet roll.

Black is just a another color, right? Just equally a color just like white, yellow, pink, brown and so on. In my opinion, colors make the world great. Just like all the different people and personalities living their lives in this thing we call world. Can we please be kind to oneanother? Can we please show some respect, empathy and love for eachother - no matter what ethnicity, culture or who we love. Hate and violence will tear us all apart eventually. We are all just ordinary people. 💕✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻✊💕 #blackouttuesday #equalrights #bekind #solidarity
