Its made of matchboxes and some scraps of paper.
Just hot glue the tops of empty boxes to one another so you get rows.
The bottom should be 9 and decrease by two until you have a single box.
Cut wrapping paper to cover each row, secure with hot glue.
Then hot glue the rows in a tree shape as shown.
I used small stamps to stamp the numbers on each box.
On top you can hot glue a star or a cut out like I did on this one.
Fill the boxes with candy and trinkets and you are ready to go.

House Industries have heaps of awesome Christmas gifts on their website, but I thought these would make great stocking fillers – who doesn't want/need Alphabet Tape?

I'm loving these wall decals Cody Hudson has done for Bodega. The concept behind Bodega's large scale, eco-friendly, temporary indoor art is to make the art of emerging and established artists affordable and available to the public. The decals have been made using eco-friendly inks and vinyl.

This freaking awesome magazine. King Brown, where have you been all my life? I was staying in a cute little suburb of Perth called Leederville. It has a few really rad clothes shops and restaurants (and a fantastic skate-ish shop I can't recall the name of?!) and a shop called Remedy where I found this gem and fell in love. As you guys probably know by now, I'm a bit of a magazine freak and when I fall in love with a mag, I fall hard and fast. I am completely and utterly in awe of this fine article. Check out more King Brown here. Love it.
Zee, Anooke and I have come up with a new style called "wizard chic". It's a cross between Professor McGonagal of Harry Potter and, well, chic. For this shoot I was really inspired by Jan von Holleben's series called "Dreams of Flying". I absolutely love the set ups that Jan comes up with and we wanted to style our "wizard chic" shoot in the same way. Although our photos are not as polished as Jan's, We're still happy with the final product. We processed the photos with Sheye Rosemeyer’s Eyecandy Actions. I totally love the way that “Vintage Wash” gave the image that “straight out of the Daily Prophet” look. Thank you to our gorgeous model Anooke, an absolute star as always.We hope you enjoy wizard chic as much as we do.

Anna Beth Chao. Wow, what a woman. This design freak and her husband have been re-decorating their Louisiana home one room at a time and it's absolutely breathtaking. I just love her style and the choices she has made for each room, even down to the amazing little bits and pieces around the house. I'm so jealous. Her little design tips and insights are hilarious. I love her and I've never even met her. I can't wait to see how the rest of the house evolves. Anna documents the reno on her website here.

I love Christmas. Actually I'm crazy about it. It's my favourite time of year. I love the build up – the music, shopping for gifts, decorating the house, choosing a wrapping theme, baking, Christmas craft, you name it, I love it. Since the big day isn't far away, we thought we'd share a few gift ideas with you over the coming weeks.
