Here's what I did!
I cut out a million six sided snowflakes from standard A4 photocopy paper - these will go on the windows and hang from the ceiling.
These candles were plain when I got them and will go on the table on Christmas day. Again, white wire, white beads to match the wine glasses with a few snowflake stickers and left over leaves from the hibiscus sitting on a doily. I put cardboard under the doiley as I wanted to make sure the wax didnt get onto my table cloth...
I made a tropical type wreath for the front door - with pink hibiscus and a single green snowflake (are you seeing a bit of a pattern forming here?)
We have a hangy thing above our dining room table that we use to hang decorations for special events on - this is the Christmas version for 2011!
I used some white wire, threaded it with snowflake charms (from e-bay) and white beads with a single pink or green bead to decorate and individualise the wine glasses.
The Christmas crackers have the same snowflake that you have seen on the tree and wreath - I paid $7 for a set of these decorations at Aldi and have used the whole lot on this project.
These leis are made from serviettes cut into strips, folded like a fan and cut into petal shapes. then I scrunched each one into a flower and taped it before threading each one with a needle on the the lei. Each lei has 150 flowers. It took a while, cost $2 and looks great!
Green-ness: 3/5 Reasonalbly green in that I am reusing most of the decorations or making them from stuff I already have
Frugal-ness: 4/5 I have only spent money on the flowers and the snowflakes - about $30 all up. Pink Hibiscus wernt cheap - even on e-bay!
Time cost: Some things were quick, some took a bit of time. But like anything worth doing, its worth spending the time if you need to. Just have a plan to make sure its not all a last minute rush to have all the things you want on the day. Some of this stuff was made about 6 weeks before Christmas!
Skill level: Most of its pretty basic! Im sure you can do it!
Fun-ness: If you love putting on a show - then this is the most fun you can have - its Christmas! Go all out. If you dont do it at Christmas, when will you do it???
