The nativity has taken a serious beating from the cats and is coming down tomorrow so Becksie decided we needed something new to make Lizzie say WOW. So…………. some sticks and some scrap wool have become a new cheery ornament.
Now for those of you thinking about how this fits in to our Year With Less…………..well, the whole point of the Year With Less is not to buy nothing, acquire nothing or make nothing, but to not hoard or hold on to things unnecessarily. So, we have made our twigs and will let them brighten up our living room window this January, but we promise not to hoard them once they have fulfilled their purpose and will re-purpose them into a new use (which will undoubtedly be as firelighters)!!
This little project also had a very Year With Less outcome. We have had the glass bottle we’ve used for the twigs for nearly 4 years – we found it on the side of the road full of mud and gave it a little clean, but it has sat grubby in a cupboard for a long time, being pulled for uses as an emergency vase when required, however in true Year With Less style it is no longer sat useless and dirty but clean and useful!
