Grey & White Christmas

This year I'm sticking to pure whites and different shades of grey for my gift wrapping. I'm using a variety of materials and textures, such as yarn, felt, paper and clay to create decorations and gift tags. I've used plain white paper with ribbons and strings, clay tags and buttons to personalise parcels. Hand stitched string-tie envelopes are another fun way to pack cards or even small cookies or lollies as gifts.

Yarn pom pom dotted with hand-stitched felt stars is a fun and easy project to make (you can look up yarn pom pom instructions anywhere online, there are heaps). I will do a round-up of different holiday garlands too sometime soon.
