My handy husband made this tray from off-cuts, then I painted it with the grey paint left over from the garden shed. Inside, I lined it with some pretty wrapping paper protected by sticky backed plastic. This would also make a nice trinket tray for a dressing table – or a small tea tray!
After having new shelves in the kitchen, I decided the pens, pencils, stationery etc needed a good sort out. After the sort out, I then thought new pots were required! I am really pleased with the way these very cheap and easy pots have turned out. They are just made out of empty tins and wallpaper samples.
Having only one opportunity a year to make (and send!) Christmas cards, I decided to make a few different varieties this year, especially as when the charity ones were returned from school, Minky’s were quite clearly unfinished (she had drawn a picture but only had time to colour in half!). So I helped the children create cards from images of Christmas jumpers they had drawn. I also wanted to create cards with a wreath design using different methods of printing dots.
