Time to decorate

Christmas is coming and if there is something more exciting than Halloween for me it’s definitely christmas. I sometimes feel bad because I’m not even catholic (my family is though) but I think we can safely say that although christmas is indeed the birth of Jesus Christ, it’s also about getting together with your loved ones. For me is about the feeling. Knowing that you have to prepare for a big meal with your family, buying gifts for them. The process of it is just lovely to me. The decorations and putting your christmas tree. Somehow, even though it’s the end of the year and the finals usually kill me I seem to be more happy, or at least I try to be more happy. Christmas movies! We can hear to christmas songs! Which I don’t know why but they’re amazing and there are so many and in lots of versions with different styles and  voices.

Anyway, I was planning to do a DIY of some decorations I’ve been doing. Since I moved out to my own apartment I have to control myself for transforming my house into Santa’s village. I like going big on decorations. But the thing is, this DIY’s were really not something I made up but something I copied from pinterest. So instead I’m just going to show you two of  them which are really easy to do!

Paper stars!

The first one it’s kind of silly and simple. I just needed

  • red paper
  • green paper
  • brown paper
  • twine
  • scissors
  • glue gun (which is totally up to you because there are other ways of pasting the stars to the twine)

So what I did here is print a star that I found on google because I really don’t know how to make a star.


After cutting them, something like this was the result.


I then pasted the stars to the twine…


and tada! Simple, easy and cute.


The second one required a little bit more of effort, meaning, while walking the dog I collected some twigs, so…

Rustic stars!

  • twigs
  • twine
  • glue gun
  • some paint if you feel like painting the stars.



You first make the form to see how are you going to glue it


glue gun power and…




Pretty simple DIY that I took from pinterest. I like rustic and Scandinavian decorations so I love searching those tags.

See ya!
