DIY Christmas Cutlery Bands

December for me is usually filled with cooking and baking. Honestly, it feels like I barely leave the kitchen! If it wasn’t for work, I’d likely build a pillow fortress in the kitchen for December, to stay there even for those rare times when I decide to get some sleep. This time, I took a short break from playing with food and decided to work on a little inedible project for the Christmas table – cutlery bands!

I don’t know about your countries, but mine is now entering the carnival period. Christmas officially ended a few days ago, and the time before Lent is supposed to host colourful, jolly parties. Our celebrations aren’t as prominent as those you’d see in Brazil though, and the group that has the most fun are… children! I’ve no idea where this concept originated, but almost all kindergartens and primary schools organise fancy dress parties for the little ones in carnival here. The project I’m coming with today would have made me so happy 20 years ago! Here’s how, in a few simple steps, you can make a wand – perfect to go along a wizard costume, looking like it was nicked straight from a Harry Potter filming set!
