This is an easy craft where we use two ribbons to decorate a candle holder and make it look a little more like Christmas.
To do this craft you need a candle holder, or glass jar. If you use a jar or a glass not made for candles, make shore to test that the glass.

The first sign of Christmas

Yesterday was the first Advent and here in Sweden that's the start of Christmas season. When you have one foot in two different cultures you cherry pick; so the Christmas boxes came out after Thanksgiving.

The really big bows

I use a lot of bows, especially around Christmas. I don’t think there is a Christmas decorated room in this house that lacks bows. Mainly because they are easy to make, versatile and probably one of the cheapest Christmas decorations you can use. They give you a lot of bang for your buck, so to speak.

Did you know that your Christmas tree can look smaller or larger depending on how you decorate it? Or that the color of your Santa Claus can change from orange to dark red depending on where you place him?

Living or artificial trees

Should a Christmas tree be real or artificial? There are plenty of aspects on the issue. In or home it’s a very easy answer; it has to be artificial since we have allergy problems against real trees. A real Christmas tree and the holidays will be spent at the emergency room. So there is no contest between them.

Here is a little sneak peak from Deck the Hall, my new book that will arrive in November. We have lot of fun right now decorating and photographing Christmas trees.
Our house hosts 12 Christmas trees; we have sixteen rooms so it’s not too crowded. This is one of our smaller trees.
