Not is all it seems with this diy project. This gorgeous wall hanging is not actually woven at all, but instead done with a glue gun.

Find yourself a piece of rug, yarn for tassels, and felt balls for the basics and then with the additions of a wooden rod and a glue gun, you are good to go.

Sometimes you wish you could have a specific design on a particular item but not sure how to achieve it.

If we take a ceramic tumbler or pot for example, we have seen in the past how creative you can be with a Sharpie pen or washi tape. Today we share another way to get a sharp precise finish using printed graphics on decal paper.

This extremely simple diy project allows you to create any design you like and then transfer to ceramics.

If you are hosting Christmas and want a showstoping table to impress your guests, then today we share some amazing inspiration and ideas to do just that.

We have collected some of our favourite images from idealhome.co.uk and amara.com to get you in the mood for getting creative.

First thing is to decide if you want to go for simplicity or maxamlist as well as a possible colour scheme. Don’t worry about matching it to yout room, it’s Christmas!

Think about the number of guests and how much glassware, cutlery and plates you will need. These don’t all have to be on the table at once, but it is nice to have everything available for your guests.

Depending on if you have a round or rectagular table you will need to consider a centrepiece. On a round table go tall in the middle with a few differnet pieces, or on a rectugular table have a longer centrepiece running down the middle, and if you have space try a hanging decoration above to compliment.

Build the table up with your items, keeping everything evenly spread, so everyone gets to see your design. Also a nice touch for your guests is to peronalise something, maybe a napkin ring, a cracker or a simple name card in the middle of their plate tied to some foliage cuttings.
