Christmas Decorations - our family tradition

Just in case I don't get a chance to post again before Christmas, I would like to wish everyone a safe, happy and blessed Christmas!
These are little night light holders I painted a while ago. I love upcycling goods which have previously been used for another purpose - it makes for inexpensive crafting too! I collected flat bottomed yoghurt pots and after cleaning them applied nail varnish remover to give a good surface for the glass paint and outliner to cling onto. They come out each Christmas,  every year,  my daughter and I make one or two little things  together to add to the hand crafted decorations in our house - this year it was the altered angel who has featured in a few earlier posts
Handpainted by Anna, I made these for friends and family - I love it that folks still use them
Made by my daughter Eleanor when she was little more than a tot - still one of my favourite things - it makes me happy  each year when I unwrap the decorations

Hand painted by Anna - sorry about the blurry photo - lots to do today!
