Christmas Decorations

Hello there!

Tomorrow it's finally Christmas and like I've already told you, I'm so excited! Today I want to show you some of my Christmas decorations.

The last years I've never helped my dad with decorating the Christmas tree, because I always have exams around that time. But this year I couldn't resist. My dad has put the lights in the tree and the garland and then I've done all the other decorations. I'm so happy with this tree and I'm actually quite proud of my work. My dad normally hangs a lot more baubles in the tree, but my mom and I think it's nicer when there's a bit more space between them. I'm so excited for all the presents under the tree!

Of course the nativity scene is a part of my decoration. I know some of you probably don't have this, but in my family we've had this for as long as I can remember. I just can't imagine our living room with a Christmas tree but without the nativity scene. I really would feel like there's something missing.

This year I've found these cute little houses somewhere in the back of a cabinet. I asked my dad why I'd never seen them before and he said that my mom just doesn't like them. How can you not like them? They look amazing when it's dark and you put a tea light in them!

You've might seen these lanterns before somewhere on the internet. I promise you, they're not hard to make. I'm not a very handy person and mine turned out quite nice. You can make these lanterns all year round, just use a different pattern. But before you start hitting a tin can with a hammer, you maybe should read these tips I've got for you.
                    -Fill the tin can with water and put it in the freezer for a few hours before you start.                      This prevents that your tin can will get all dented when you start making the holes.
                    -Use a nail to make the holes. You might think that's quite obvious, but I had the brilliant
                     idea to start with a small chisel... Trust me when I tell you that using a nail is so much
                     easier and will go much faster.
If you try to make these, don't forget to send me a picture of it on twitter (@HanneVerleysen) or send me a picture of your favourite Christmas decoration (mine is definitely the tree)!

Have a Merry Christmas!
