It's been a busy year and I can't believe that it's almost Christmas! It's the first Christmas in our new house so it's very exciting and we decided to get a real Christmas tree which I've not had before. We bought a smallish one as we don't have much space and bought a few decorations to go on the tree. I thought the tree looked a little bare so I decided to make my own decorations. I remember making stained glass cookies a few years ago and decided to give it another go. The recipe is one of Mary Berry's which I found online. I had a selection of Christmas cookie cutters and I used a sharp knife to cut out the middle bits. The final result is amazing and it looks really good on our tree especially when it catches the light. You can easily make these in one evening and it will be a great project for the kids. I'm going to try some dried orange slices next to go on the tree. Any other suggestions for homemade Christmas tree decorations?
I'm sending this to AlphaBakes hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes and myself on alternate months. The letter this month is 'X' and Caroline is accepting everything Christmas related.
These little tree decorations are perfect for Treat Petite hosted by Kat from the Baking Explorer and Stuart from Cakeyboi. The theme this month is Christmas.
