A Christmas wreath fit for a bike lover! I posted a peace wreath made using a bike wheel a few weeks ago and yesterday I finally did it. I just trimmed a few bit off my hedge and wove them through an old bike wheel I saved from landfill and added some bows to make it a bit more festive. Just needs fairy lights!!
Keep craft alive! Sometimes it’s easy for me to get annoyed when the kiddos are working with me in the shop but then I’m reminded of what it was like to be a kid and watch my dad work, I wanted to be just like him, a carpenter and that’s exactly what I became now it’s my turn to inspire my kids to do whatever they choose to but they will always have a skill and a craftiness in them.
Happy Saturday!! Only 2 more Saturdays after this, have you started your Christmas shopping? I ordered vegan Christmas cupcakes to pick up on Christmas Eve and I’m super excited because they taste so damn good!!! Come on Christmas!
This popped up today and it looks so good! I’m a pastry lover and what I love the most is that you can actually fill it with whatever you want! The recipe for this pastry wreath in particular is on the BBC Good Food website: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/vegan-christmas-wreath#recipe -method . Who would fancy attempting a pastry wreath??
❤️❤️Homemade Salt Dough Christmas 🌲 Ornaments made by Mommy (me) ❤️❤️(recipe below) This has become a bit of a #tradition each year during this time to make #saltdoughornaments for the kids classmates and teachers. What if any TRADITION do you or your family have during the Christmas Holiday season?? (Let me know your family TRADITION in the comments below) I can't wait to see some of the traditions you all have.
🎅🎅MERRY CHRISTMAS 🎅🎅 (DONT FORGET JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON) SALT DOUGH ORNAMENTS RECIPE:
*1 cup salt
*2 cups flour *1 cup water
Preheat Oven to 170°F
Bake for 3 hours
Cool for 1 hour
*Acrylic paint (for decorating later)
*MODGE PODGE ( to paint a protective layer over the paint) *Sharpies(permanent markers)
*Buttons or embellishments (to glue on when decorating
*Anything you might want to use to decorate your ornaments to make them your own creation
*Paint Brushes in different sizes
*Hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
(Now on the Decorating items, these are just suggestions on things you might need to decorate your salt dough ornaments after you have baked and cooled your salt dough creations.
*Ribbon or String (to tie onto ornaments to hang them)
Mix ingredients together and knead until well mixed and a pliable dough forms.
Flour a dry hard non pourous surface and roll dough out until around 1/4 inch thick then use cookie cutters of your choice to cut out shapes (Make sure you take a straw and push into the top of the dough cutout to make a hole for the string to go through before baking, do not add string until after baking)
Bake at 170°F for 3 hours
Let them cool 1 hr
Love this for place name holders at the Christmas table! 2 twigs/sticks glued together (could also just be tied together with string or an elastic band) so you can slot a card and a sprig of Christmas tree in. For a lovely, natural Christmas display!
