Advent Countdown Week 1

So, as the holiday season is fast approaching, my thoughts have started to turn to decorations, in fact my thoughts are actually around how to kitten proof my christmas 🙂 The little monsters are growing fast and Ninja is putting on about 400g a week!  with his sister Skyla catching up.  I fear for the wildlife in my garden when they finally leave the house – as they are both rather too keen on watching the birds and bats swooping outside and pouncing on a feathered jingly toy I bought them.

So over the next 6 weeks I will be bringing you a project each week that you can complete in the run up to Christmas.

So in anticipation that they will be attacking anything on a tree, I figured I probably wouldnt want to be hanging my pretty glass decorations, so these quick and easy stars would make a lovely (replaceable) set of decorations.


So to make these you just need six pieces of 2 x 2 inch paper (5 x 5 cm) a length of ribbon and a bead.

Ideally, you need to use a paper with a small repeatable pattern and I like the use of double sided papers, This can be made using card, but it doesn’t fold as flat – card would be better if you were making a large version.

I hope you enjoy making these

  1. We bought “shatter proof” bulbs for our Christmas tree. They are made with plastic but look fancy enough. Paper ornaments might be tempting to my cats. They would bite them.
