Festive Cheer

Enjoy some festive creativity with this video made at home in Gillian’s kitchen. 

Gillian and Inge make scented pomanders and cheerful recycled decorations. 

All that you need to make a pomander is an orange and some cloves. If you would like to hang the pomander as a decoration, a little ribbon and a few pins are required. Once the festive season is over your pomander can be dried out and will retain its evocative scent.

For the Christmas decorations, any paper will do. Gillian and Inge use old drawings and paintings, plus some paper and card from their recycling bins. You could also use up those old Christmas cards from last year that you did not get rid of yet! You will also need a circular object such as a bowl to use as a template, scissors for cutting out the circles, some prittstick/gluestick and some wool or twine to hang the decoration once it is made.

We would like to thank Jerry and Melinda very much for sending in beautiful images of their artwork in response to the Lonradh at Home videos. You can see some of Jerry and Melinda’s artwork on our slideshow. Thank you both!
