In my last post I mentioned the donut ornaments I was making for my Christmas tree. Well, after some tweaking and perfecting – here’s the final product!
The best part of making these donuts is the amount of customisation I can do. I can use SO MANY COLOURS!
This one’s made with chocolate dough, vanilla icing and rainbow sprinkles…
Next you’ve got your classic dough with pink icing and a white stripe drizzle…
And finally there’s the light blue icing with chocolate sprinkles!
Argh! YUM-BO-REE-NO. So much sweetness, and all from yarn! Zero calories yo.
So my apartment is tiny. I wonder if I’ve ever made a post without mentioning that. Whatever though, because even though I don’t have much space, I can still get myself a Christmas Tree and that makes me super happy!
There’s a market near me that sells… Hmm, not sure how to describe it except to call them “mini semi-fake trees”.
OK. I am sensing more descriptives are needed here. But basically what they do is use small branches of real trees and stitch em together onto a post to make a mini version of real full-sized tree. It’s like a Frankensteins monster of a tree!
Anyway, there are real pine needles and it’s the perfect size for my apartment. Check and CHECK.
I still have plans to make more decorations for the tree. But I don’t know how much more this little guy will take before he keels over.
I’ve got my little Tutti Frutti and Watermelon Bite ornaments in there. PLUS, I’ve got some crocheted donut ornaments up in that thing, which my boyfriend keeps threatening to eat because they look so tasty. Ahhh Christmas… You pretty!
How are your Christmas decorations coming along?
I think I’m going to need a bigger Christmas tree considering all the ornaments I am making.
At the moment I only have one set of these, which I feel like I need to keep because they’ll probably be hanging from my windowsill plants all year long! But, do not fear, I am planning to make some more sets for sale eventually. Will update this post once I have my shop set up!
The colours kinda remind me of gaudy style flamingo decorations, which are awesome. PS. If someone knows where I can buy the below flamingo wallpaper, please hook me up!
