A few weeks ago, one of my colleagues came up to me and dragged me, acting all mysterious, to her room. "I'm organizing an office Christmas Challenge! Do you want to be part of the Christmas team?" Well, of course! The challenge means that everyone who wants to participate decorates their rooms as Christmassy as they want. Some people take this very seriously; there's been talk of a snow machine...
Although I'm not necessarily in it to win it, I don't want to be upstaged by all of my co-workers and be the only one who didn't decorate. So last weekend, I spent some hours creating simple Christmas decorations that hopefully still have a festive effect. Of course, Pinterest was my best friend.
Inspired by this post by the lovely ladies from A Beautiful Mess, I made a paper Christmas village:
...and a very easy (once you figure out where to cut) paper Christmas star. And last but no least, I made a few super easy and fast garlands of gold paper snowflakes. There, done! A very Christmassy office!
