Snowflake Ta-Dah

Hello my lovelies, how are we all?
It's pretty cold, grey and miserable here today, perfect weather for snuggling down, eating something comforting and watching a family film :)
Mmm, porridge with bananas and raisins
 The snowflakes are now blocked and hung

Instead of hanging them bunting style, I decided to decopatch a wooden coat hanger with pretty pink/red/green paisley papers and hang them off it.
In a couple of weeks time when I decorate the house for Christmas they will take pride of place in the front window.

Sorry about the poor photo quality in this post, the light here is terrible!

Hanger close up
 Mistletoe leaves are currently on my hook, awaiting their white berries.  These will then hang on my vintage mirrors along with some crochet holly.

After seeing lots of these little candle holders on Pinterest I decided to make my own using Pride & Prejudice papers

I do so LoVe candlelight, but this is battery powered candle light, pretty good huh?

Right-o, off to prepare tonight's dinner and cuddle up with the Little Sweetpea's on the sofa, possibly with something hooky in tow.


  1. Hi Victoria, love you candle holders that is a wonderful idea. Must put on my to do list! Your snowflakes are going to look very lovely hanging in your window for Christmas!

  2. Whats this porridge with banana and raisins???? well I've never tried it like that before,,,,sounds yummy!

    Gorgeous Christmas decorations ....I love Christmas!!!!

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

  3. What a nice Christmas decorations you made!
    The crochet mistletoe is also a good idea !

  4. Those snowflakes are so pretty, and I love the idea of the decopatched hanger too! Have you tried sprinkling chocolate chips on your porridge? That's my guilty pleasure! ;-)
    Have a lovely weekend,

  5. I'm a porridge fan too, honey in mine, might try this one! :)

  6. Dear Victoria
    You're well ahead of the game! Lovely decorations (and porridge). My Christmas bunting has been cut out and tacked together, but that is as far as it has got (hangs head in shame). Must try harder!
    Best wishes

  7. Aww have a lovely cosy evening with your little folks, Victoria.
    I love your creative makes, especially the mistletoe...
    Sending kind thoughts..
    love Maria x

  8. I love the candle holders!!
    Your snowflakes look so good, I bet the mistletoe will be fantastic too! Using the hanger was a great idea. I can't stop thinking how pretty a Christmas tree decorated with crochet snowflakes, mistletoes etc. would be.

    Have a great evening! :)

  9. I love the snowflakes they turned out brilliantly and your mistletoe will be beautiful when finished.

    I am sure your little ones are looking forward to Christmas and are very excited, it is lovely when they are small and innocent.

    Very cold and damp here today Victoria so am snuggling up and staying warm.

    Enjoy your evening.

  10. Your snowflakes are beautiful and the mistletoe is going to look great. So much nicer than plastic decorations!

  11. There is nothing more warming the nice a nice hot bowl of porridge...Mmmmm!

    I cant wait to the mistletoe, I love the stuff and decided to make felt ones last year to put on the corners of hung mirrors and photos too.

    I like the Battery operated tealights, brill idea xx
