Shrinkles!, originally uploaded by ****Anna****.

A while ago now (actually probably a year ago!) I won a huge supply of craft items. Included in this was a pack of Shrinkles. I have looked at them a few times and thought Hmmm They look fun! but never really known what to do with them.

The results were much better than I expected. You just colour them in, cut them out, add a hole for a key ring and them put them in the oven for a few mins! The result is a very cute little plastic charm 7 times smaller and 7 times thicker than you started with…..now what else can I use them for……

Halloween Tree!, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

Here it is my Halloween tree! Made ever so simply by taking a branch of a tree and decorating with suitably spooky things! I was going to knit some decorations however I have a bit too much on at the moment so settled for shop bought decorations. I used the base for my christmas tree as a stand.

Here it is in the dark with the Ghost lights switched on:


Make one! I think everyone should have trees for more occasions, can’t wait until easter as I have big plans for an Easter tree lol!

Am contemplating turning this into a bonfire night tree next week, depends if I can get the boys to decorate some rockets etc, so watch this space?
