Making Christmas: Christmas Lollipop Decorations and Wine boxes

A quick update on my Making Christmas list. Here are some Lollipop decorations:

Un veloce aggiornamento per la mia lista Creare il Natale. Ecco delle decorazioni Lollipop:


And I decided to transform some old wooden wine boxes that have been hanging around for a while. I'm terrible at collecting "containers", always have been. My parents know something about this... from tins to all sorts of boxes. For once they came in use: I painted a couple white and transformed them into "display boxes". This is a single bottle box:

E ho deciso di trasformare delle vecchie scatole in legno per vino che sono in giro da un po'. Sono terribile nel collezionare "contenitori", lo sono sempre stata. I miei genitori nè sanno qualcosa... dalle latte ad ogni tipo di scatola. Per una volta sono stati utili: ho dipinto un paio di scatole di bianco e le ho trasformate in contenitori espositivi. Questa è una scatola per una singola bottiglia:



I like the matt effect of this paint that lets the veins of the wood show through.

Mi piace molto l'effetto opaco di questa vernice che lascia trasparire le venature del legno.


Used this larger wine box to make a Christmas display box for the Bird decorations I made last year.

Ho usato questa scatola per vino più grande per creare un espositore per le decorazioni che ho creato l'anno scorso.
