These have to be the cutest decorations i've seen in a long time and they are so simple to make

clay decorations

Modelling clay
Vivid/sharpie or paints and brushes
Rolling pin
Cookie cutter


Alright so grab some clay and roll it out with your rolling pin probably around 1/2cm thick (don't worry you don't need to be too fussy on this bit)

Get your desired cookie cutter and cut out your shapes making a hole in the top for the string to go through with a straw.

Now you need to follow the instructions on your clay packet for how long to bake your shapes in the oven.

Once they're baked and cooled then use a vivid/sharpie or paint & brush to decorate your little decorations.

Thread through some string and hang them on the tree or make mini ones to go on gifts.


Happy Tree Decorating!

Keep the showercaps you get when you go to hotels.  Use them to put your shoes in when you're travelling so they dont mark your clothes.

While you sit down to your caffeine hit have a think about these:

  1. The French philosopher Voltair loved coffee so much that he drank an average of 50 cups a day.
  2. A team from the BBC built a car, nicknamed the "Car-puccino," that can run on ground coffee.
  3. Coffee beans grow in berries! There are two beans per berry and it takes about 4,000 beans to make almost 2kgs of roasted coffee.
  4. According to legens, an Ethiopian goatherder named Kaldi discovered coffee when his goats became more energetic after eating some red berries.
  5. Soldiers loved their coffee so much that some guns had in built coffee mils.


So there you go now your highly educated, well you now know random facts about coffee.  Still can't believe that one person can drink 50 cups in a day!!  How much coffee have you ever drunk in one day??
