How to make a Kawaii Christmas

AH I love Christmas, I love the whole setting it up and decorations!
I often take some down time to get ready as most of you know that I also have a sweet Christmas star's birthday on the same day. Yup Chibi Bean will be a whole 4 years old on Christmas day! Kyaaa!!! She is already excited with seeing me getting it all ready.
Before Chibi came along I did not really do much at Christmas at all, I even tried to work it if I could so I didn't have to do the whole Christmas thing, I lost interest in it. But of course that has all changed since Chibi bean came along! I put all my energy into it every year now!
This is the 4th year of my some what famous Hello Kitty tree but am not giving out details of it all just yet!
Instead this post is showing off my DIY Kawaii ideas and other Ideas to make things Kawaii!
Wanting to give a kawaii make over to your Christmas is pretty easy, you just have to think...well think Kawaii!
Recycling old Christmas decorations is a cheap option and you can make them as good as a new item in the shop!Changing the colour theme to whites and pastels or mixing soft colours is also a great idea!

I took this old mini white tree and a mini pink wreath I had that I wanted to recycle so I took the pick like branches off the wreath and attached them with strong glue to the thin and some what looking sorry for its self tree. I was very happy with my new pink and white tree that not only looks Kawaii but much fuller too!


But what happened to the wreath's base? Well I wanted to add more colour to my Kawaii Christmas theme and happened to be making Pom poms and created a new Pom pom  wreath along side a new Pom pom Garland to hang up! And I even used sparkly wool and added extra glitter for fun.I can not wait to hang it up on the wall! Pom poms really can make something look super cute!


 I also made with Pom Poms cute Candle bases ( mind you might not be very particle with wool and a open flame.)Which some of you might see at the next up coming Maid cafe as well as the garlands too! Also keep a eye out for my new Pom pom hair band I made thats pastel and Kawaii with Glittery like snow !

Check out this cute Kawaii Christmas Bauble!


As well as having fun with pinks whites pom poms and glitter I also have been having lots of fun with Christmas Baubles, which I wanted to make more of but never mind I have next year to make more right?
I wanted to make my own ones and it was really easy to make these! Getting hold of material was also easy to do , well I did get my baubles a bit to big for the kawaii things I wanted to add to them - whoops!- But then I found something to go in them and found smaller baubles to use.
I have made a DIY kawaii video to share with you all here on my youtube Channel!!!

Aswell you can follow the easy steps shown below in photos too cause they were so much fun I pick Kawaii Characters I love lots of Hello Kitty and my fave kawaii bear Rilakkuma and his friends too! Not only that they each live in their own wonderland of snow!

You will need!
Clear Plastic Christmas Baubles that can come apart.
Craft Glue
Small Toys or Kawaii Characters to fit inside the Bauble.
Glitter Snow of your choice.
And some Rhinestones to decorate.

Split the bauble and attach your rhinestones both in the inner side and outer side. Make sure you leave space between the rhinestones. I used tweezers to pick them up and place them in the Bauble!



Using Craft Glue or Strong glue to  place your Kawaii item inside and leave to dry!
Mine too 5mins or so. Then you want to add in the Snow, I added mine to the other half of the bauble to make it easier, not to much you don't want to lose your Character in all the snow!



Then using glue to seal the outer edges but both sides together and then add some string .
And there you have it Kawaii Characters in Christmas baubles! Just like that Easy!!!
Of course you can make em any size you want or any theme you want! I can not wait to see any you make and how they will look on your Kawaii Christmas Tree's!
I am looking forward to having these on my tree so much! Way to cute.


Not only making you own stuff will be fun but also it will be unique to you and your Christmas!
Keep a eye of my final Kawaii Christmas post coming real soon.
Till Later.

Kawaii Club April un-boxing

Hello every one, Today I have the April Kawaii Club subscription to share with you!

Yay, for a other Kawaii club un-boxing! Not only do you get to see what's inside but you get to hear about the items.This month is crammed with super, super Kawaii items . Like SUPER KAWAII! And I bet your dying to see them!Yatta! Lets go have a look!



This months theme was *drum roll* Rilakkuma Homewares...Kyaa!
I have to say this is my favourite Kawaii Club box so far! Maybe cause am a sucker for home wares that are adorable, but I think its cause its all rilakkuma stuff! Eeee~
Also am sorta glad as I had been eyeing a few of the items in my kawaii club online too! So am super happy !



This month in the box we got your new letter with information in it about your items. The 1st time I got with the Ookii Parcel was a huge Rilakkuma re-useable shopping bag I love these things!

You roll it up to keep in a pocket or handbag when out shopping , whip it out and you have a large more stronger bag than the plastic ones from the shops! Once you are you, just roll it back up for using again! Its so handy! The plus side is its huge so its a great excuse to buy even more when shopping ~Huhuh! Also you will have the added bonus of using a super cute bag too!


Also we got a Rilakkuma phone number message board, which you stick on the numbers to the board to keep them at hand when you need to mind say your moblie number , home land line or any other important number, I never mind my home number so I used mine for that haha! Is so cutely decorated with Rilakkuma and Kiriotori on the board.
Also I got a Desk top Tidy box a handy item to have, Mine will end up being used for pens and paper notes my one is Yellow with Kiirotori on it, thats the little yellow bird by the way - teeheee!


 I found also a Kawaii Pump of Rilakkuma's head you could use in the bathroom or by the kitchen sink as a soap dispenser. I really wanted one of these for a while and am using mine to encourage chibi bean to wash her hands with Rilakkuma after using the bathroom. It seems to be working as well!

There is a set of memo pads that are adorable the are in different sizes too so there is 'tabs' that can be used for bookmarks and memo stickers to plaster everywhere and anywhere heehee! And they are all themed like Rilakkuma too!

























The last 2 items are a San-x stapler, mine came as Korilakkuma as a stationary junkie and keen penpal writer this is a handy thing to have and my goodness its so cute!! I cant wait to have a new deck and have it sitting by my stuff haha!

The other item is a set of cute food resealers, you can keep your left over snacks fresh with these and seal up half eaten snacks,with cute Rilakkuma to keep watch over them too- heehee. A very handy gadget to have in the kitchen or when out and about too!


Well that's the un-boxing for this months Kawaii Club, keep a eye out for my post for next months when it arrives! Yay!
