Christmas Ornament Swap 2015

By golly folks its 92 days until Christmas. Are you like me? Do you want to be more organised. Save yourself from a mad rush in December. Well here is your chance to get in the Christmas mood with the a green life Christmas ornaments/decoration swap. 


Over the past few years I've participated in or organised a Christmas ornament swap. We missed a swap in 2013 but 2014 was great and I'm hoping 2015 will be even better. It is SO lovely checking your letterbox for new homemade ornaments (aka love) for your Christmas tree. 

Do you love a beachy Christmas?

Or a white Christmas?

Or just plain colourful?

Here's the details:
Participants will be put into groups of five people who you will "swap" ornaments with. That means making four handmade ornaments/decorations, four for the other people in your group and one for you.  I will send the postage details of the others in your group to you. I will not send your address to anyone else. Please let me know if you would like to join in by 26th October. You need to post them an ornament by the 23rd November. This results in five new beautiful ornaments for your tree. 


How to Join:
If you would like to take part in this swap, this is what you need to do:
Please email your:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address 
  • Blog or facebook page link if you have one
to my email address, agreenandsometimesbluelife at gmail dot com by the 26th October
(just go right ahead now and email me back). 



What to make: 
For some inspiration please check out my Ornament and Christmas board's on pinterest (you don't have to be on pinterest for this) and look at the a green (and sometimes blue) life blog posts under the name Christmas for ideas. Lots of the ornaments in this post have tutorials. Lots of them are made from felt too as I've been inspired by that medium lately. But you can use what ever you love- paper, wire, beads, buttons, wool, etc. What I'm going for this year when I make my ornament for this swap is that the receiver is going to be so appreciative of the beauty, detail and time that has been put into the ornament.
