Festive lamp scenes

In our saloon we have two wall lights and we thought we’d make some shadow decorations for Christmas for them.

We used cereal boxes, greaseproof paper and sweet wrappers. I made the frames and my daughter made most of the shadows.

They were fun to make!

Wrapper rescue

I’m interested in looking at how we can reuse wrappers of all kinds – sweets, chocolate, crisps, wrapping paper, that coming in a range of foils, plastic foils, paper foils and thin cheap plastic. Mostly this plastic packaging can’t be recycled. However they offers a huge range of colours and sparkle and I’m looking for ideas to make long lasting items out of them.
