In the run up to Christmas I often find myself pottering around home shops on a quest to find beautiful bits of decoration. As I live in an 18th century cottage, I am fortunate enough to have large fire places in most of my rooms, which gives me a wonderful excuse to fill them with beautiful crafts.
This year I saw some NOEL letters in one of the high street stores for £24.99. They were simple, elegant and glittery gold. I thought they would look great in front of the fire, but on reflection, I simply couldn’t justify the price, as I’d only be able to use them for a few weeks a year. So, I decided to make my own, for a fraction of the cost.
I chose ‘N-O-E-L’ but obviously you can choose whatever letters you like – MERRY or PEACE or CHRISTMAS or LET IT SNOW would all work, And, while I went with a gold glitter spray, you can easily use red, green or any Christmas colour you like.
