If you love the look of twisted wire, but are looking for something to decorate your home rather than yourself, what about a copper wire tree centrepiece in a terrarium? Check out the terrarium kits put together by No Square Plants. There are four different kits showcased in this listing that cater for those who already have the tools and container (£14.99), kits 2 and 3 where you already have either the tools or container (£19.99), right up to kit 4 which would make a perfect gift as it contains everything that you need! Kit 4 is priced at £24.99. Please make sure that you choose the right one with everything that you need when ordering.

2021 project organizer

Our last highlight this week is something for all those knitters and hookers who have been beavering away on the run up to Christmas making gifts and decorations for others. It may well be time to sit back and cast on something for yourself (if you’ve not already done so). What better way to keep track of all of your WIPs than a new project organiser? Put together by experienced designer Fosbascrochet, this organiser is jam packed with helpful pages to help you keep track of you current projects. As this is a downloadable file with no physical copy for wait for, you can print the pages that you require as soon as your order confirmation email arrives. It is currently on an introductory price of £4, which ends at midnight tonight when it will then revert back to £8. So, be quick! 😀

Thanks for reading everyone – keep yourself safe, and have a great week ahead ❤️
