Handmade Australia Day

Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi!

What better way to celebrate Australia Day than with something that you have made yourself!

Here are my top 5 favourite things to make this Australia Day!

Table Decorations

Having a party or special Aussie day BBQ? Why not decorate the table with native branches, leaves, or flowers!

Up cycle some old bottles, by wrapping them with some bakers twine or hemp cord. They make a simple yet pretty vase for the table.

You could also make a wood bead garland to add to your table! Simply string a variety of natural and painted beads onto your string.

Our little wood plaque features scrabble tiles and a laser cut koala (also featured below as an earring)

Gum Nut Babies

Our cute little gum nut babies are a great activity to keep the kids busy!

Simply glue wood beads into your gum nuts and add a piece of felt for their hat!

This activity always makes me want to crack out the Snuggle Pot and Cuddle Pie books!

Australian Themed Earrings

What better way to get yourself in the Australia Day mood, than by getting all glammed up in Aussie themed earrings!

We have a range of kangaroo and koala acrylic pieces in store, as well as all the tags and findings you need to create some great earrings!

And why stop there? Get creative and make yourself a necklace, brooch or keyring!

Coles Minis Jewellery

Have you still got a bunch of Coles Mini Collectables floating around your house? Why not upcycle the Aussie ones into some fun jewellery or fridge magnets!

Watch my story on Today Tonight for some other ideas too!

Aussie Wreath

This Australia Day Wreath has been made with a selection of gum leaves and nuts, as well as pom poms made from yarn and tassels.

The wreath has been wrapped in natural hemp twine and the items all glued on.

You could also use a selection of real flowers, or even make them from paper!

So get creative this Australia Day! And enjoy all the fun and celebrations in style!

Happy Australia Day!
