Handmade Pallet Christmas Trees

Every year these handmade pallet Christmas trees get to come out and say hello!  

I had a pretty unrealistic dream one year that I wanted to fill my garden with lots of them and make some sort of magical wonderland! Storage was a little bit of an issue! So I stopped at three. 

These are super simple to make, probably one of the easiest pallet upcycling projects out there.

pallet christmas trees

You’ll need an old pallet which you can get anywhere FOR FREE. Never pay for a pallet! All my pallet projects have been upcycled for free, either by searching on gumtree/facebook marketplace or seeing them at the side of building sites.

Once you have your pallet check which side is the most attractive, then also decide which way up it’s going to be – again choosing the most attractive bit to keep as the base!

Then draw a triangle on your pallet, making sure the bar that holds each of the planks of wood, is going vertically through the middle.

Then saw either by hand or with a jigsaw all the down the lines, and that’s pretty much it! Say hello to your new pallet Christmas trees!

We dressed ours with solar powered fairy lights so they twinkle in our porch in the evening.

Here’s all three pallets off to help decorate a Christmas themed wedding one year!

Free bunting for all

To celebrate our 7th birthday we’ve made a beautiful printable for you to make and use at home, either for celebrations, as gifts, or decorations for the home.

All you’ll need: string, a hole punch and some scissors.

Print out this floral bunting by clicking on the link below.

You’ll find the first few pages are the letters ‘happy birthday’. If you would like to create your own personalised message, I’ve designed the whole alphabet, so print out the letters you need for whatever phrase you would like to create.

Print onto paper or thin card, then cut out the flags.

Hole punch or use scissors to make teeny holes in the top corners.

Thread the flags along the string (in the right order) and there you have it.

To add some va va voom, before making holes, you could mount these flags onto different coloured card or paper.

Use the bunting for a wall, along the edge of a table or along a curtain pole. Keep somewhere safe and flat, and reuse again and again!

Credit: I used a stunning photo taken by Georgia de Lotz to create this bunting. Thank you Georgia! 🙂

Rustic Barn Wedding Inspiration

Need a little inspiration for your rustic barn wedding?

Our latest adventure took us to the Great Barn . Tucked away in Ruislip, West London, stands a magnificent venue you would never know was there. We had the pleasure of designing and decorating the space for two sweethearts who were having the ceremony and celebration inside the barn. They wanted a rustic barn wedding and we had just the answer.

Welcome the decor… 

Guests were welcomed to the venue with a floral fairy lit ladder, set infront of a  backdrop of hanging jars full of baby buds of gypsophila and LED candles.

One half of the rustic barn we set up for the ceremony using our lace and hessian chair ties. We created eight trees sprinkled with a frosting of fairy lights pinned to each of the beams of the barn. Overlooking the vows from up high were white lanterns strung across the beams.

As the bride entered the aisle she was greeted by an uber cute personalised chalk board and two picket fences. Our hessian fairy lit heart was at the focal point at the front of the aisle with vintage sacks and buckets lining the registry table. Each chair down the aisle also had a stem of gypsophila poking its head out of the chair tie.

Fast forward to the celebration, afternoon tea was organised for each of the guests. Tables had a log, vase of gyp and numbers in the centre. Our personalised signpost proudly overlooked the party pointing to the four main facilities.  

It was such a pleasure to put together all the pretty bits and pieces for the lovely couple. We were over the moon to hear they had a fabulous day surrounded by bespoke rustic barn wedding delicious-ness.

Decorate your home with a wine themed DIY make

Do you like decorating your home with handmade goodies? This is a creative make for any wine loving enthusiasts.

I had one of those decisions to make last week; to finish some of the crafty projects I’ve already begun or make that list longer and start a new one… I chose the latter. It’s just too exciting to start something new.

I kept all the corks from our wedding day and they have been sitting on a shelf waiting for me to pick them up and begin this project, poor things. I knew one day I would want to construct the first letter of our family name, and that day had arrived and I had my glue gun at the ready!

I got the letter ‘A’ cut out of MDF by a timber shop. You can order letters online too pretty cheap and you can choose from loadsa fonts. Then you get glue gun happy! Start covering the wood in glue and sticking each cork down. Most corks have a pattern on one end, I chose to have these facing out and I’m super pleased with the outcome.

My house is slowly becoming a haven of handmade delights! My poor husband!

One Stunning Vintage Barn Wedding

A barn wedding is always such a privilege to decorate. Most of the time, the barns are so magnificent, it doesn’t need a lot to impress your guests! I love the look of the brown wood against the lace and white fabrics of the table cloths.

We recently helped the lovely Nicky & Oliver with their beautiful barn wedding. The venue looked stunning, we loved all of their great ideas they chose – my favourite was their table numbers.

Our hessian chair tie backs all behaved themselves adding a touch of vintage to the room. Take a look through some of the photos we shot.

A Beautiful Navy Wedding Adventure

If you love a navy wedding theme this one’s for you!

We had the opportunity to let our creative juices go to town by providing some handmade bespoke props for a beautiful wedding held in West London which had a navy wedding theme.

We both had a great time cutting, sticking and sewing, getting all the different props ready for Saturday morning. Then when everything was in place, we stopped, we looked around and I’m sure my hearty did a backflip with excitement – it looked beautiful.

We had our homemade picket fences standing proud at the front of the venue with a personalised chalk board – these always help add that bespoke feel to any event.

A Way To Display Your Christmas Crackers

Take a look at this way to display your Christmas crackers.

Use a prop to help decorate the top of your table this Christmas.

We love the look of filling a picnic hamper with crackers and wedging it open with a small rustic stick.

If you don’t have a picnic basket, you could use a basket, vintage suitcase, a fish bowl this list goes on… experiment this Christmas and give it a go.
