I can’t believe we’re almost half through December already, where did the year go?? This month is such an exciting and busy month though that it seems like it’s flying by even faster than all the others! My bloggers in crime and I have something fun for you today for the Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge! I know, we’re early this month again, but only because we want you to have the chance to get creative as well before Christmas is here! Our theme, you’ve probably guessed it is: A Christmas Craft! So for that, I will be showing you my easy nordic Christmas garland today!
First, let me explain a little bit about Christmas here in the South of Spain. People have family dinners on the 24th of December and also on the 25th, but the big day for the kids is not until the 6th of January, the Three Kings Day! The three kings bring the presents! But, with my little family, we celebrate it on the 24th of December, that’s our big night, it’s a German and Argentinian tradition [my husband was born in Argentina, then moved up North to Canada] and that’s when we will find our presents under the tree. We have dinner, usually duck or turkey, something fancy, and then my husband goes out with the girls looking for Santa and oh well, he always arrives just a few moments later! I also like, that like this, the kids have all the Holidays to play with their new toys. And the three kings usually leave us a little something under the tree as well when they come. 😉 As you see, there’s a little bit of everything in our multi culti family…

Easy nordic Christmas garland
Here’s what I used:
~ these stamps
~ ink pad
~ square cut, small srapbook paper, folded over
I cut my scrapbook paper into small folded over squares, so my stamps would just fit on them. You can see one on the photo above. In total I cut about 20 little papers folded over. I then cut around the edges of the open part and printed on each side.
After, I put glue on the inside of the cards and folded them over the string, leaving about 3-4 cm space between each card.
And this is how it looks decorated on the branch hanging in my big dining room window. I’ll be posting more about my dining room Christmas decor tomorrow….
If you like it, pin it!
