This year will be a handmade Christmas – we’ve started by making our simple Nordic horse ornaments
In the process I’ve created my first ebook featuring my DIY Ornaments in a complete Tutorial + Printables
Hi, it’s nearly November and my thoughts are turning to Christmas – the season of ‘Hygge’ as they say here in Denmark!
For me, crafting your own decorations – from card, wool and felt – is the perfect Hygge Christmas activity for the whole family!
And after such a long year I am inspired to make 2020 a real Handmade Christmas!
The Craft Ebook – which I have enjoyed putting together this Autumn – contains six of my printable Dala Horse designs – which can be coloured in or left beautifully plain!
A little peek at what’s included in the ebook:
My favourite bit is always colouring in the horses – it’s kind of a meditative activity – I guess you could call it an exercise in mindfullness..
Adding your own colour scheme to the horses gives them a completely new feel – so choose from the whole rainbow!
As well as the plain horses a complete set of colourful versions is also included – ideal for people who love colour – but don’t enjoy colouring in!
Along with the Printables a fully illustrated step by step tutorial + tips and ideas for decorating and using your horse ornaments is also included!
A Lesson in tassel making!
A step by step tassel making tutorial is also included – where you will learn how to easily create two kinds of beautiful tassels to compliment your handmade horse ornaments!
BONUS: Smaller Horses for gift tags and garlands
As a little Christmas present I have included a smaller version of the horses – both plain and coloured – for you to create beautifully homemade gift tags, garlands, small cards etc.
Quickly create charming handmade gift tags and garlands – which can be dressed up or down – and coloured in or left plain!
A family craft activity – for all ages!
Even the youngest members of the family can have fun with this craft ebook – and their creations can be treasured for years to come!
I hope you have a lot of fun with this simple Christmas craft – and all the best cheer to you for November and beyond!
