At this time of year and particularly right now all we want to cosy up and stay warm in our homes.

Along with soft fabrics, we love texture, and right now we are seeing a lot of this online and in stores. For example, cushions with pattern weave and raised short pile, chunky knit throws, and soft sheepskins.

With so much on offer, now is the time to layer up your living room and bedroom with gorgeous soft furnishings.

This Mexican inspired ‘gods eye’ wall hanging is a lovely piece of art for any room. It’s really easy to achieve and simply uses various yarns, dowls and a pair of scissors.

By setting the dowls in a cross you can then weave the yarn around to create the pattern.

Head to almostmakesperfect.com for the tutorial.
