Cranberry Heart Ornaments :: DIY Tutorial

Cranberry Hearts Christmas Ornaments :: DIY Tutorials ::


Tis the season to be jolly!

We made some beautiful cranberry heart ornaments today with Christmas music ‘jollying’ us along. They look so pretty on our rustic tree.

Teddy and I made them while Kitty made us hot chocolate with her famous recipe… 2 cups of milk, one cup of cream and half a cup of chocolate chips… melted and gently warmed in a pot on the stove.

Let me share our DIY tutorial with you so that you can make some for your own tree.

Method ::

Cut a length of wire about 8 or 9 inches long.

Thread the wire through the fresh cranberries.

When the wire is threaded completely with cranberries, shape it into a heart and stick the ends of each side of the wire heart into a last cranberry to complete the heart shape.

Tie it with a pretty bow to hand and admire your creativity.

We got to thinking that a garland of cranberry hearts would look wonderful too.

New Photos from The Sunny House

Here are some new photos of The Sunny House.

We love open plan living. Our downstairs area is large and open where we can all be together but have our space too.

The old dining room table that we picked up for free at the side of the road a few years ago (and used to fill our old home to bursting)  can breath at last.

Here is my kitchen. I have never had an island before. Having so much counter space has renewed my excitement to cook!

All I need now are faux antlers above the fireplace :-) I have half a mind to make my own out of beached ‘antler looking’ driftwood – anyone seen any like this?

More photos to follow soon.

Blessings and magic,
