HYGGE GOING GREENER WITH PAPER BALLOONS AND BUNTING…

We are all aware that going greener is the way to go but which eco switches would you like to make. While all being at home during this Pandemic we are sure many people will be having a birthday and in particular, the younger generation who will feel a little left out without all their friends around. Try swapping plastic balloons for paper and get the children making their own.

You can also buy Japanese paper balloons. Petra Boase has a lovely range including penguins and fish.

Or go for felt bunting which again you could make yourself or have it personalised. A great site is House of Hooray who has lots of ideas and simple banner flags like below.

If you love having a go yourself but are not quite sure of the sizes etc then head down to Homemade Gifts who have images and tutorials on how to make your own bunting. There is even a tutorial for a no-sew bunting.

7 WAYS TO HYGGE DURING COVID-19 LOCKDOWN WITH PICTURES…

While we are in lockdown due to Covid-19 we can still practice our Hygge by going through all our photo albums and putting them in unique picture frames for the home. Here are some great examples for you.

Check out this amazing Moments Frame which holds a brilliant 52 pictures.

Or these tabletop frames from Restored Hardware.

 

This image from Famebridge includes a tutorial on Postcard Picture Framing.

Of course, if you haven’t any pictures but have some old frames you can always pop plants in them like the example above.

Or you could make your own print and pop in a frame like this one from Honeymoon Hotel.

In this beautiful vintage and modern home, pictures have just been stuck to the wall for a great effect.

This is my absolute favourite and so easy to do while stuck at home from Life Mama.
