We love to make our own ornaments for the tree and the kids always love to see their creations hanging proudly! These egg carton jingle bells are really easy and very cute! Just cut out your egg cartons so you have the little ‘cup’ shape. I spray painted ours gold because it’s easy and quick! {I also only spray painted the tops, it would probably look nicer if you spray painted the insides too, we were just in a hurry to make something so I didn’t bother!} I poked holes in the top of each with […]

We’re half way through the advent calendars – already. What? I’m not sure how that happened so fast.Has it all been a blur for you too? I was talking with a friend of mine about this the other day, how this time of year inevitably gets crazy busy, not just because of Christmas, not only if you haven’t finished Christmas shopping two months ago, but because for us Aussie’s it’s also the end of a school year, everything is wrapping up and being finalised before our long holidays.
