DIY Christmas | Pipecleaner Decorations

One week today!  This is my last DIY craft before the New Year and it's a nice a easy one.
Sometimes, the best DIYs are the simple, afternoon-in-front-of-a-movie crafts and today, you can add to your decorations with an easy and very cheap-but-chic pipecleaner make.  We're taking it back to pre-school crafting.


£1 Pipecleaners [that's it!]


I decided to throw caution to the wind and free-style my letters, but you could write or print off text to use as a guide.
Simply bend your pipecleaner into each letter, wrapping the pipecleaner if you need to add a bit of stability or to change direction:
...if you run out of pipecleaner, its easy to add, twisting the ends together and carrying on your word:
Trim the pipecleaner when finished and either use the loops in the letters as your hanging, or tie/fix in place with glue your ribbon.
...can you guess which word it is yet?
Words, letters, shapes, Christmas tree decorations, present tags or hanging to place around your home - add a bit of sparkle and make sure you share your makes with me if you do!
