Handmade Christmas Decorations

Handmade Christmas Decorations

Form 6 has been working with the brilliant Anna Mills, aka Label Lady, to design and create some fun, handmade Belhaven Christmas decorations with the proceeds going to charity.

Label Lady asked the children via video link to think of what we might ‘Be’ at Christmas time. They had to brainstorm ideas, measure the space for lettering on a template and practise their best writing with a pen. Anna then embroidered their ideas onto some heart-shaped decorations, made from Belhaven uniform fabric.



The decorations are priced at £10 each, with 50% of the proceeds being donated to the charity ‘Can do East Lothian’ (  Should you wish to purchase one, do get in touch with Rosie Langton at


Next year, we hope to be able to invite Label Lady to teach the children how to sew their own decorations, but we are delighted to have been able to work with her this year despite restrictions.

A big thank you to Miss Kidd and Anna for making this project happen.
