Seasonal Inspiration

Christmas inspiration

With the move all the christmas decoration came up, so now I’m really getting into christmas spirit. This mostly means that I’m inspired by lots of christmas crafts that can make our christmas home more personal and less about comsumerism!

Like these santas made from pine cones!

I made my own version with some fabric, wool, string and a gluegun!

Another fun christmas craft is a homemade wreath! I think this Rudolf version is just adorable! And so easy to make!

Some other (not so traditional crafts) that I find extra inspiring this Christmas are:

Alternative Christmas Trees.

Personally I love the traditional Christmas tree which, for me as a Swede always is a real tree! But if you’re low on space, or simply don’t live in the climate of Christmas trees, I’d go with one of these rather than a plastic tree!

Eco-Friendly Fire Starters

If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, why not make these sweethearts? And they make your home smell like Christmas (or just like cinnamon, depending on what you prefer!)

Candles

If you don’t have a fireplace, fill your home with candles! The variation is endless and you can create and kind of mood you like!
