Back along himself and I decided this year we would concentrate our efforts on home made presents for each other, and so now I present the results:
Also – not shown in this photo heavy post – an oven glove, bath salts and rebatched soap. a yarn bowl an an organiser (that sadly split but I’m promised replacements), a paper mache bowl, a glass made from a bottle, and a set of dominoes (charity shop purchase) complete with lots of different versions of the game, a calendar, some wooden spoons and a heart shaped wreath.
As you can see, himself concentrated his efforts on round wooden things – not bad given he is new to wood turning.. And we definitely hit the descriptions of unique, rustic, has patina etc – but made with love.
I’ll go into more details over the making of some of these items, but that covers the big reveal promised, and now we can go back to less pressured craft activities. We definitely enjoyed the process and the results.
