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
Get the festive season started with a diy advent calendar! From intricate crochet projects to simple designs to use up your fabric scraps, there’s a pattern for every crafter! Here’s a few of our favourites:
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.
5. Christmas warmers
Keep cosy this Christmas with some handmade winter warmers. Whether you prefer to keep things traditional or go for a novelty feel, there’s something for everyone!
6. Deck the halls
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.
8. Get working on a winter wreath
Spread some Christmas cheer & make sure your guests recieve a festive welcome with a Christmas wreath hung on your front door.
9. Super stockings for everyone
It wouldn’t be Christmas without present-filled stockings & we’ve found some lovely handmade designs. Don’t forget the dog!
10. Book a crafty Christmas getaway
Throw yourself into Christmas crafting with a festive getaway! December is such a lovely time to travel & pick up some Christmas gifts, explore the festive decorations and get your creative juices flowing in crafty workshops…Our December crafting holidays have sold out for this year but we’re currently working on our 2019 collection.
