At the weekend I washed the windows and hung the Christmas curtains in the living room, so now I can cross that off my list. I have red Christmas curtains with no pattern, so I figured I might as well hang them up now that I actually had the time. The next few weekends are already almost full with programs, so it's great to be able to get away with a little extra now.
There have already been Christmas films on TV and P7 Klem Jul started again on Friday, so now there is no doubt that we are approaching Advent and the cozy pre-Christmas season. I made sure to put on a cozy, romantic Christmas movie while I ironed the curtains.
1. Make/order Christmas cards
Now is the time to get the Christmas cards in the box, whether you are going to make them yourself or order them. Christmas cards have now also arrived in several stores, so if you are going to buy, there is a lot to choose from.
2. Make/buy labels
It's nice to sit and tinker with some hobbies in the evenings, now that it's gotten so dark outside. Find from some cardboard and different decorations, and make some great labels for the Christmas presents.
3. Buy or make some Christmas presents
A big plus of dividing the gifts over several weeks is that you don't notice it so much on your wallet, in addition to the fact that you finish in good time and avoid the stress in the last weeks before Christmas.
4. Make a Christmas wreath for the front door
It is so nice to be able to welcome guests with a wreath on the door at Christmas time. You can easily make a decorative Christmas wreath from twigs, various ribbons and ornaments. Take a look in the drawers and cupboards and see what you have to decorate with.
Good luck with the week's tasks!
Tip of the week:
Are you going to give Twist or other wrapped candy to someone for Christmas? Make a decorative gift bag, which you can put the chocolate or candy in. This is a great way to use up leftover paper and decorations, and the bags are very nice to both give and receive as a gift.
Did you get these with you?
