The festive season is almost upon us & we’re on a mission to make this year our craftiest Christmas yet! If you’re in need of a little inspiration, take a look at our 10 ways to get crafty this Christmas…

1. Make a crafty Christmas countdown

2. Tree Decorations

No tree is complete without a few handmade decorations & we like to add a few new decs every year. Mix some homemade goodies with your existing baubles to really make the tree your own.

3. Presents under the tree

There’s nothing quite like unwrapping a handmade gift for Chrismas. And of course, you get the pleasure of crafting it yourself! Win-Win!

4. Don’t forget the wrapping!

Unfortunately those lovely handmade gifts won’t wrap themselves (if only!) & the wrapping of presents can be another great opportunity to DIY. From gift bags and wrap to present tags – all can be reused year after year.

Decorations don’t need to be restricted to a tree! Add a Christmas cushion or quilt to inject some festive cheer into any room!

7. Set the scene for Christmas dinner

Go all out & decorate the table ready for your festive feast. Coasters, table runners & placemats are great mini-projects for the cold winter nights.
