DIY Christmas Present

LFK_HotChocPresentfinished3

I love giving Christmas presents and definitely think it’s more about the thought behind them than how much they cost. All of the items in this DIY cost me a total of £3, which I think if you want to make something for your friend or family member that will make them smile this would be it. This cute little jar contains all the ingredients to make two hot chocolates but after they’ve eaten all of the contents they have a lovely jar to keep items in too!

I bought this jar from Hobby Craft and found these great individual hot chocolate sachets from

Paper Succulent Christmas Wreath DIY

LFK_WreathDIYflowerdetail

On our recent visit to New York, my friend Amy gave me this succulent paper craft kit from Paper Source. I love anything to do with succulents; so this DIY kit was right up my street! I also wanted to see whether I could recreate something that vaguely resembled the design on the packet.

Below is a step by step of how I put the wreath together. The great thing is you could recreate the wreath without the kit by using the same techniques and cutting the flower shapes out of coloured paper.

The kit consisted of:

  • 1 Cardboard Wreath
  • 1 Short Length of Ribbon
  • 4 sets of 10 small succulent shapes
  • 3 sets of 10 medium succulent shapes
  • 3 sets of 10 Large succulent shapes
  • 26 different shaped leaves
  • 3 sets of 10 flatter shaped succulents
  • Double sided tape
  • Adhesive foam squares

1. Cut each of the succulent shapes out. Then using a knife, curl the edges of each of the petals (like curling a ribbon on a present). For the flowers/succulents I curled

Most Curious Wedding Fair

_MG_8767

I’ve been to so many wedding fairs recently that have been such a disappointment! So you can imagine my excitement to find one that brought together a group of beautifully creative people who are really passionate about weddings.

I travelled up to the Most Curious Wedding Fair at the Old Truman Brewery with one of my lovely bridesmaids Nicole. I was so inspired by the unique styles of each of the wedding vendors, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourites. But first check out the awesome catering from the guys at Cereal Killer Cafe (yes that is a Kinder Hippo in my cereal!).
