Christmas is around the corner, so its only fair we feature something perfect for the season. Growing up, Christmas has always been fun; from buying Christmas clothes and shoes to decorating and visiting friends. Did I forget to mention eating Christmas fried or jollof rice and chicken (freshly killed and cooked) in our friend’s homes. I also remember the decorations, especially the placing of old and new Christmas cards on any available surface, including ropes tied across the room. Our decorations were usually scanty as my mum didn’t have much time then, but some of my friends houses were fully decorated. You might have thought Santa was a member of their family.
By now I am sure a number of families would have started putting up their decorations, and we have something beautiful you can add, if, of course, if you’re a hands-on person. As an alternative to the traditional wreath, you can give this contemporary one we saw on a “A Beautiful Mess” a good try. All you need are some PVC pipes (three different sizes) a saw, some glue and a gold spray paint. You can opt for a green or red spray paint, but this gold paint is perfection.
