Christmas Decorations

‘Twas the nightmare before Christmas when inside the house, the Grinch left a crumb too small for a mouse.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been repainting Christmas decorations that I made (and my dad cut out) last year. The varnish that I used previously made the paint crack, so I had to sand them back and repaint them.

I like the idea of a bit of a cynical approach to Christmas, so the decorations are from The Nightmare Before Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This year my mum and I put them in our backyard, so we could appreciate them more, even if others can’t.

Over the last week, I also made gift tags, which are gingerbread men versions of my family, made out of paper (of course). They can be ornaments too. I also made one of myself (I’m the one on the bottom left).

And, just to join in with everyone else who posts photos of their Christmas tree, I thought I would too. Can you spot the Doctor Who and Harry Potter references? (The Harry Potter one was added later, so it’s only in the close up photo.)

I hope you all have a merry Christmas!
