This week the Polkadoodles challenge is to create a christmas decoration and here's my christmas tree mobile.
Cut 2 6.5cm squares of contrasting paper for the pot and shape the sides making them more pot-shaped!
Cut the 2 triangles of paper into strips 3.75cm wide
Cut 2 Stars for the top of the tree and 2 Ovals for the hanger.
Place one set of tree pieces and the star face down leaving a 2mm gap between each piece. Take a piece of string and stick it to the centre of each tree piece with some tape, keeping the string as straight and as near to the centre as you can. Otherwise it'll be 'wonky'!
Now stick the corresponding pieces on top with glue, decorate both sides and stamp a sentiment on the oval hanger. I'm going to make a few of these to send as cards, it folds quite easily to fit into a standard sized envelope.Hope you can join in with the challenge this week, it closes on Sunday 15th November. There's some lovely designs by the DT to inspire you to get crafting for christmas, be sure to check them out on the Polkadoodles blog.
