They are not really rigid but are just holding their shape. However I think humidity will be my enemy in the weeks to come. Mum says that there is a way to starch crochet with egg whites but I'm yet to find the recipe.
So far with our Christmas decorating we have really focussed on hanging decorations. We have the crochet garlands, paper chains and the bunting I made a few years ago. The beauty of these decorations - all up high and baby proof!
Our tree is still looking a tad naked but we're working on it. Fortunately we have high ceilings so even though we had to put the tree on a table to keep it away from destructo baby, it only just hits the roof.
