Friends recently introduced me to the wonderful people at SCARF (http://scarf4art.co.uk/) a not-for-profit group who recycle things that would otherwise go to landfill. My son and I made Christmas trees as presents for his nursery teachers from some scourers I brought at SCARF.
The trees were inspired by a post I saw online at http://funcraftskids.com/dyi-felt-ornaments-christmas-tree/
We are doing the nativity play at church a bit different this year. Various people will be doing different things in the building (including some craft stuff). We then come together to tell the Christmas story with pictures of the various groups that belong to the church. The toddler group was asked to provide a photo to represent the shepherds minding their sheep. These are some of the sheep masks we made out of paper plates for the photo.
I have now made my husband 4 stoles, one for each liturgical colour. This one represents the Annunciation – a gold circle for the Angel and a blue circle with a white circle within it for Mary and Jesus. (Inspired by the Bath Diptychs http://www.bathabbey.org/whats-on/events/bath-abbey-diptychs)
