Making things for christmas

Its been a busy few weeks leading up to Christmas. As with most people at this time of year my thoughts have turned to gifts and decorating. There's something that's still really exciting about all things Christmas, particularly the lights and decorations. Last year I cobbled together my own reindeer for the front garden out of an old bike frame, the lense off a rear dynamo light and a whole load of battery powered LED's from the pound shop.

After a little dusting off he's back in position and waiting for Christmas to happen. Many thanks to YukonRider for the original idea- it's a stroke of genius!

This year I decided to put together a couple of decorations for the tree. My favorite so far has been the bike spoke spirals, which nestled amongst the tree boughs and christmas lights look fab.

All it took was a couple of spokes, basic tools and a bit of time, why not have a go at making your own.
