  3. These are really adorable and they actually look incredibly easy to make. I need to redecorate a bit so I've been looking for some easy ideas.

    1. Thanks Allison,

      The garland is very easy to make: cut circles, fold each circle in half and use 5 to make one ball (glue together with a string in between). That's it! Happy crafting!

  6. Love the grey and yellow too. Wondering about the cubes? Are they made from paper or plastic straws? Love to know where you got them. PS so pleased you didn't mention how many days or weeks to go. over that already. And its still early days.

    1. Thanks! The 'cubes' are a part of a traditional Finnish Christmas decoration made out of natural straw.

    1. Thank you Mardi!

      The honeycomb tissue balls are the only thing I actually bought and didn't make myself! It is possible to make them though and there are quite a few tutorials online.
