Taking a Christmas Break

Hello beautiful people!

I've decided to take a Christmas break. With a bit of luck I'll be back in early February.

It's a bit sad but I think it's the best choice for now since I'm currently...
... doing a full-time online summer course
... organising myself for Christmas
... aaaaaaand


So as busy as I am right now, no doubt it'll get busier and taking an official blog break will ease my mind on this front :) If I get a chance I'll update every now and then, but not to a schedule.

Love you all loads my wonderful bloggy friends! 
Wishing you all a very happy December and a Merry Christmas!

Whip It Up Wednesday: Ribbon Christmas Bauble

Time for another Christmassy installment!

I've made a few baubles for the tree this year. It's so much fun making shiny, pretty things! I look forward to the day when I'll have kids of my own to do this with ^_^

What You'll Need:
* 1 Styrofoam ball
* Ribbons in Christmas colours (I also used sequin strings)
* Pins

What To Do:

Take one end of your ribbon or sequin string and pin it to the top of your Styrofoam ball. Wrap the ribbon all around the circumference of your ball and pin down the other end. To secure the ribbon further, pin it at the bottom and sides as well (3 more pins).

Repeat this with another ribbon or sequin string. You can do this at a 90 degree angle to the first string like I did, or you can add the new ribbon just slightly overlapping the first one. The approach you take depends a bit on the pattern you want to achieve :)

Repeat this process, building up your pattern and switching ribbon types as you go.


When you've covered all of the white Styrofoam, you might want to wrap a final ribbon around the 'waist' of your bauble to hide all those side pins. Alternatively, you could use pins with pretty pearl-look heads :)

Finally, pin a loop of ribbon to the top and hang it on your tree :D


Merry Christmas!
