DIY 'nail art'

Bonjour ma Cheries,

Today's post will be a DIY which I'm quite excited about! It was really fun and simple to do and only took one hour at most. It actually looks really cute on a shelve as a decoration or you can even give it to someone as a gift! 

I'd love to see it if you've recreated this DIY so send me a picture of it on my Instagram or twitter @atouchofrosa

Lots of Love,
Rosa








So the things you will need are:

- a piece of wood in the shape you like (I chose simple square)
-nails
- a hammer
- wool yarn in any colour you like



Start with cutting the shape you want to make out of paper so you have a stencil.
Then place it onto the wood. The best thing to do is to tape the stencil to the wood so it won't move.




Then start hitting the nails into the wood with your hammer. Place the nails about two centimeters apart from each other. And once you're done remove the stencil.






Tie the end of your yarn to one of the nails. I chose the bottom one because that's the best to start with.
Then go around all the nials randomly with your yarn until you have done all of them. Keep on tying the yarn to the nails but make sure you eventually follow the line of your shape.
Then keep on doing that until you have something around three layers of yarn between every two nails.





So if you've chosen a heart shape like me it should look something like this!

Christmas

Bonjour ma Cheries,

I know this post is a little late but I was really busy during the last few days but I still wanted to share with you my Christmas decorations. I really love Christmas! Unfortunately we didn't have snow this year in Holland and it was rainy all day but it was still lovely.




I decorated a little Christmas tree in my bedroom and put it next to my Russian doll and a Mask from Venice. It looks really Christmassy and gets me in the spirit! 



I decorated the tree this year, wich I really love doing. I bought some new ornaments; wooden ski's, ice skates and slee's. Also some cupcakes and a Father Christmas, a Vintage car and a little wooden cabin. 


We have always had plain red and gold ornaments and this year I wanted to do something different. I did use some of the red and gold ones but mainly I used all kinds of different ornaments. I quite love the wooden ones and the cupcakes too!


For Chistmas eve I baked some Chistmas cookies, and they turned out so nice! They tasted really good. I bought the equipment at http://www.maakjetaart.nl/ 
They sell quite nice baking stuff and decorations! 

Happy Holidays! 

Xoxo Rosa
