Getting Crafty For Christmas

I've loved arts and crafts since I was a little girl, so what better time than Christmas to bring out some creativity? I'm hoping to make a couple more things before Christmas but I couldn't resist showing you all what I've made so far. 

Origami! I love origami so much. My mum used to teach me how to make things when I was younger but now I have my own little (well, actually it's very big) origami book! I decided to make these star things. I can't remember what they're called but they look so pretty. I'm still not sure whether I'm going to just stick these to the wall or add a ribbon so I can hang them up.

I have also been making these felt Christmas puddings. I'm really pleased with these and this is the first time that I've attempted to make something from felt. It took a little longer than anticipated but I'm so pleased with the results. I think they do resemble Christmas puddings, right? These are just hanging on my wardrobe at the moment but I may transfer them to the Christmas tree....

I'm definitely going to be making more felt hanging decorations in the future, though not necessarily Christmas-based! 

I hope you liked this quick Sunday post. Let me know what you think!
