Candles, cookies and Christmas tea, plus of course some Christmas music to get us in the mood, what more could you ask for? Well, to learn to make Traditional Danish Christmas Decorations, of course ;-)
We had a very hyggeligt time at our Christmas decorations workshop on Thursday the 16th of November. Our 'expert' maker, unfortunately had to drop out at the last minute, so we wrestled our way valiantly through weaving traditional hearts on our own. Not as easy as it looks, but soon everyone was busy making.
After getting the hang of the hearts, some of the more ambitious participants had a go at the brain teaser that is the Traditional Danish Christmas star. This fiendishly difficult process rivals doing the Rubik's cube for impossibility, the instructions on the packet being particularly baffling. However, with patience and fortitude, I am pleased to say, one of us succeeded! Although, the least said about my pitiful attempt, the better.
