Make do and Style this Christmas with lovely homemade decorHave you made a merry lil something this silly season? Why buy new when you can hand make something that is one of a kind, beautiful and has your own creative stamp, value and worth? For me, that is a much nicer and meaningful aesthetic! I know creative perfection is something to aim for and I understand it can also be a deterrent for many. I believe more so in having a go, at trying something new and I think that perfection will follow if you love it, enjoy it and believe in yourself enough. Go on, unleash your merry "make do and style" creative spirit this Xmas!

|Do you think the humble pine-cone is the most fabulous symbol for an Australian Christmas? I do! Love this simple pine-cone ribbon decoration hung from a candle chandelier; it adds so much charm with its mix of natural and romantic-industrial. The view is also quite amaze too!

This will be the last Make do and Style round up for this year; I simply must do a lil "give away" as a token of appreciation for everyone who has embraced it. I will do the draw this coming Sunday 09/12/12. It will include anyone that has submitted a snap with #makedoandstyle, commented on any make do and style round ups or is a follower of this blog. Have a lovely Xmas and if you do get the urge tag #makedoandstyle. Merry Xmas!
