Conkers. I remember playing this until all you had was a lump of white stuff on a string! I tried everything, baking them, soaking them in vinegar and all sorts to get them to last the longest! I'm sure health and safety has sadly now stopped this kind of great kids' fun in the playground!
Clear, glass ornaments decoupaged with vintage papers, sprinkled with glass glitter and tied with "Noel" made on a printer. There's no real tutorial here, but I guess it's using the decoupage technique and glue such as Mod Podge to get the paper to stick to the ornaments. http://ninasapartment.blogspot.co.uk/search?updated-max=2011-10-27T14:27:00%2B01:00=5=30=false
