No denying it, today's the 23rd of November so Chrizzle is getting rizzle guys. (Christmas is getting real and round the corner). But there's totes still time to fulfil your fantasy of doing fun, handmade, instagrammable touches, do not fear. This one is aimed at the kiddos, but who's to stop you from doing this for buddies, nieces and nephews, at work or what not? It's super simple, but sometimes it helps to see a real like idea come to life, no? So here's what we did.
Some seasonal foliage (admittedly we pinched this from a shoot with did with the AHMAZING Palais flowers earlier in the week) But foraging and flower markets are the way forward with this. Or keep it simple and just use..
Red and white striped old fashioned sweet bags
LOOT!!! (we are doing this for a certain little lady that LOVES gem stone crystals, so we popped one in a day with a Christmas pudding chocolate and a few bigger extras for the final day and a couple of others, like a light up reindeer badge for her last day of school and a book on the 20th when excitement is reaching fever pitch). Who's to say a little EE Bling wouldn't go a miss - Many of our brass rings are cool £5 and we have a whole host of loveliness which barely break a tenner - check them out here.
Choose which days you want to go for and make extra special to mix it up.. and get filling!
It's easier to lay the numbers out so you can think of it as a whole.
These bags were actually quite big as someone (me) didn't read the description properly, so that was cool for the bigger ones but meant a bit of folding action for the smaller objects.
Lay on the floor, or hang between chairs to get your configuration sorted, tying foliage with knots and using the mini pegs for the bags.
Once you're all done, hang on the wall! How you hang depends on how how much wall space you have. Just from end to end or you could even make a Xmas tree shape if you were feeling clever?
We went with rows and the little lady seems happy with that. Enjoy EE-ers!
