DIY Christmas decoration with recycled materials.



This year, i've decided for Christmas decorations made from recycled materials.
I' ve got a lot of old magazines, a lot of pieces of wrapping paper and it was a pity throw so many materials away, so i'm filling my home with DIY Christmas decoration!
I've posted a tutorial of a very simple and nice Origami Christmas Star, i hope you enjoy it!
Merry Christmas everybody!

Guerilla Knitting in Monza

Guerilla Knitting is: "a form of street art that has been spreading across the globe over the last few years. Knitters and crocheters take their “matronly craft” to the streets covering urban objects with brightly coloured fuzzy goodness. Few objects are off limits and tree trunks, hydrants, mailboxes, park benches, public telephones, bicycles, public sculptures, and even cars and buses have been yarnstormed" (
Here we are in Monza, and our knitters have got covered all symbols of a romantic, bright, poetic and sweet past.
The " Dolce Vita" was finished a long time ago, and now the only thing we can do is to look that part of our history and cultural heritage and hoping for change.
The writing on the 500's plate is "mi ritorni in mente" ( "you return in my mind"), so i hope the colors will come back soon.
