It’s that time of year again when the muggy heat of Summer is replaced with that creeping chill of Autumn.
I love the long Summer days (especially as it means I can live in flip flops for a few months!) but the change in seasons means it will soon be time for cosy nights huddled by the fire under big knitted blankets whilst drinking hot chocolate.
In a bid to be organised this year, I promised myself I would keep on top of my festive products. I know alot of you are going to flip at this point, but yes I’m talking about Christmas decorations. I adore the festive season and I love designing my own gifts and decorations. After a few years of developing ideas, there’s finally a nice collection forming including one of my favourites, the little Bobbin’ Robin.
Each wooden bird is given a few coats of paint before being sanded down to give them a smooth finish.
His bright red tummy really turns him into a cheerful robin and this is left to dry before the tiny paint brushes come out! After another quick sand down, he’s given a wing, an eye and his song is painted onto his red tum.
A bit of string finishes him off and he’s ready to hang on your tree!
