Christmas decoration part 3 : all around decoration

In order to make this Christmas become more into the Christian, we decide to attach some sentence from bible along with the decoration.

After many time of effort trying to make the end point of garland curl, we determine to gave them bone, so the can curl in the way we want,

 These wreaths was inspire by mommity website. We recycle the trow away color paper to made them.

My coworker built this cardboard Christmas tree while I in charge of another part of decoration. They say they follow the instruction they found on internet, but I cannot find the source.

And Santa Claus is stuck in the fireplace, hahaha 

Christmas decoration part 2 - Nativity tree

Last year, I saw the picture of this nativity tree and I really want to try decorate our office's tree in to something similar to it.

Luckily our new staff agree to help me build this tree. Let's see how I built it.

First, sculpt the baby, I cut cuboid foam I found in storage room in to doll shape. And use permanent pen to draw smiling face.

Second, prepare the bed for baby, I cut the cardboard in to the box shape and glue together. The lay fake hay at the bottom.

 Third, with the bigger cuboid foam, sculpt them in to man and woman. Ten dress them up with some color paper or fabric.

Forth, with smaller cuboids, sculpt them in to the villagers with the same way we do with the previous three.  

Fifth, but cardboard in make villagers's house. Used brown paper to built the road path along lower haft of the tree.
Then prepare the animals that will stand around.

For sheep, I used cotton ball and cut paper to head shape to form into the sheep.

Arranging all the stuff into the place that you want them to be.
I forgot to took picture while we were building the cottage.

Upper path of the tree, I decorated with the paper angels I made.

Here the front view of 2015 Christmas tree!!

Paper Angels for Christmas decoration part 1

Christmas is coming!! This year also my work place still holding Christmas decoration competition ! And the most exciting things is my department just got 2 new recruits, and those 2 are really into the competition. So we decide to take the challenge!

Today I gonna share how I make little angel for tree decoration.

Because the silver paper is really thin, so I fold them together with normal 700 grams white paper. In the picture I cut paper into size of A6.

Then fold the paper to cone shape.

I use a straper to hold the shape but you can glue them together. And press the upper part (above my thumb).

Draw a circle for angel's head and cut it out.

Fold the paper to make angel's wing and attach every parts togethet.

I add more color paper and try to make wing look differently with layer color.

I made all 5 angels for this year Christmas tree. Fast and easy.

Moreover look good when they hang on the tree.

Pikachu again after 3 years.

After I publish my Pikachu pattern on :

There are many people question me about the pattern and I try my best to answer them here: 

Finally after I had crochet that Pikachu 3 years ago, I have a chance to re-crochet him again.
I am not exactly follow the pattern because this Pikachu is a little smaller than the one I did in the past.

The left one was crochet follow my pattern which I still don't have time to finish him, and right one is this the head of Pikachu below, you can see the different in size.

I am very proud of this Pikachu, even tough he smaller than pattern original one but this still is a big size amigurumi doll. I don't have much chance to make a big one like this due to my present work and many factors. I have to thank to my customer from from Canada that he made this decision to order me to made this Pikachu for him. What a nice experience.
