Christmas Blog!

Hello lovelies,

With Christmas being so very near I thought it would be lovely to share a fabulous Christmas blog and video! In this video I’m chatting about Christmas shopping, cooking, and my decorations around  the house. Having so much vintage furniture and trinkets I utilise decorating what’s already there, and using a miniature Christmas Tree!

This year for Christmas my husband and I have a brunch with my side of the family, and dinner with his side which will make for one busy but delicious day!

My Christmas Recipes:

This being my second vegan Christmas, and my husband’s first I’m quite excited to be cooking more, and more food for others to try. What a beautiful life is a gift it is to give at this time of the year. I’ve listed below the recipes I plan on putting together in case you yourself would like to try these, or have vegan friends or family who may like this!

With this recipe once the bread has cook, I’m going to butter the bread, add a little sugar and toast on a hot plate, and then cut into small pieces. On Christmas day I’ll then dip each piece in coconut cream, and garnish with a strawberry!

I’m also planning to bake a few others things like chocolate cake, and cupcakes if I have enough time. I’ll be sharing a full blog after Christmas of all I made!

Starburst Ornament Tutorial:

What you’ll need: 

  • Paper, I’ve used a red and white polka dot paper, with white background.
  • Scissors.
  • Ribbon, lace, or string to hang your ornament.
  • A pencil.
  • Glue, hot glue gun or double sided tape.
  • Sequins or rhinestones (optional).

Method: 

Step one:
Firstly I made myself the stencil, you can just copy them from below and change the size as you’d like. For mine I first drew a starburst, I then traced this to create two parts, part A which has points going horizontally, and vertically, part B has its points running on 45 degree angles.

Step two: 
I cut out my stencil and used them to mark up my beautiful paper, I do this on the white side so it’s easy to cut this.

Step three:
I then proceed to cut out all my pieces. I need one part A and one part B to create a single starburst. I put all the part B’s with the white side facing up as this is how I wish to make them with two colours feature.

Step four:
I then take part B, and ensure that this is sitting horizontal, with the points stemming off at a 45 degree angle, like the picture below. I take my adhesive (hot glue gun), and apply a little dollop to the very centre.

I have part A ready next to this, with the longest point facing the bottom, and the smallest point facing the top to stick on top of this. One I’m sure I have the point in the right direction, I stick part A on TOP of part B

Step five: (optional)
I next take a crystal or sequin and glue to the centre of my star.

Step six: 
To finish my starburst I take my lace or string and cut a 4 inch piece and fold this in half. I glue the ends to the back of my starburst ornament. Once dry which only take a few seconds with hot glue, your ornament is ready to be hung!
