It’s that time of year again there is frost on the ground and a chill in the air. Christmas is coming and at Slanchogled we have been busy making all kinds of magical decorations for you to enjoy and make at home.
Here is our nativity scene. It looks fantastic and is simple and fun to make. We created our characters by threading wooden beads on to cotton reels. We then added felt for their clothes and used Posca paint pens to draw on the faces. The stars are made using our glass beads tied on to invisible string, stuffing for clouds, raffia for the hay in the barn and our card board Christmas trees for the background.
You can make an advent calendar with a difference this year. We have suspended carefully numbered parcels from the ceiling using simple papers and hemp string. We then added some sparkle by hanging baubles amongst them.
Our glitter covered stars can be used to make vibrant decorations, Christmas cards and to add flair to your present wrapping.
You can find glass jars full of coloured beads on the branches of our tree.
They are dotted amongst our snowmen, reindeer and elves.
We are looking forwards to the celebrations ahead with reefs, reindeer, wooden trees and shiny shapes in our arty grotto on Chalk Farm road. See you soon.
