WRAPPING AWAY

I spent the majority of today taking photographs of these gifts in incredibly bad lighting because I realised this time tomorrow they will already be handed to new owners. Bad lighting of course meant the time of the year where you get only a couple of hours of light a day and by 2 o'clock it was dark enough to call it a night.
Wrapping this lot took me a couple of nights to finish but I don't mind because they turned out looking pretty good. It's probably too late for you to replicate these this year, but I highly recommend trying next year (or for someone's birthday). They were surprisingly easy to make and the pine cones and twigs are all natural and local (fancy way for saying from the forest by my house) and cost 0 money. The only thing to make it easier would be to own a hot glue gun. I bought one for this project and will definitely putting it in good use in the future as well.

Veetsin tänase pärastlõuna neid kinke pildistades, sest avastasin hirmuga, et homme ei viibi need enam ju minu kätes.Võitlesin halva valgustusega, sest kella kaheks oli aeg juba pillid kotti panna - eriti enam häid pilte kätte ei saanud. Kogu pakketöö võttis paar õhtut aega, aga julgustan ka teid proovima, sest oli üllatavalt lihtne - ka minusugusele kobakäpale ja DIY-võhikule. Ainuke asi, mida soovitaksin, on laenata naabrilt/osta liimipüstol. Mina ostsin endale selle tööriistapoest, maksis 15€ ja usun, et kindlasti kasutan seda ka edaspidi (ausalt, kui ma piparkoogimaja monteerisin, vandusin ja sõrmi ära põletasin, mõtlesin küll, et tõmban selle maja liimipüstoliga kokku). Igatahes, väärt idee, mida proovida. Boonus on ka see, et käbid ja kuuseoksad on siitsamast metsa alt korjatud, nii et 0€ väljaminek.




Parimat,

PS! This last wrapping is my favourite of them all because it is the one going for my lovely mom! So it has the honor of being the closing statement of this post.

PS! See viimane pakk on mu kõige kõige lemmikum, sest see on mu kallile emale! Sellepärast siin ka aukohal!
