Christmas Crafts
Fun to do and make

Many enjoy making lots of different Christmas crafts. Sometimes the whole family is involved as a tradition like picking up the Christmas Tree.

Decorations galore can be made in all different forms from paper, cardboard, salt dough, modelling clay, fabric and knitting.

Celebrations such as this makes the whole place twinkle with lovely lights and decorations. Bringing these into your home adds to the excitement and leads to a party atmosphere.

With most celebrations it takes time to get prepared and as with a lot of crafts this preparation takes place months ahead. So the buying of fabric, threads, glitter and glue can be made not forgetting the planning of what to make.

There are lots of craft outlets like Minerva Crafts and Hobbycraft that have all the items you need.

I have looked through Amazon (mainly to show what is available) and found some of the Christmas crafts in kit form or to help with your creations. There are also some things already made case you do not want to make them but like the homemade look. Wherever possible the items chosen have had good reviews from people who have bought the product.

Not to mention also some things in my Homemade Craft shop



Christmas Crafts Ideas

Advent Calendars

A great way to countdown the days to Christmas. There are many ways these can be made from the simple pictures in envelopes on a cardboard tree or to the more elaborate wooden crafted ones.

My children used to like the little cardboard boxes that held a daily treat for them but filling them took a bit of imagination with the size limited to what could go into the box and for three of them...!



Bunting

This can be made out of fabric or paper. Traditionally the bunting used to be paper chains hung up around the ceiling or walls.

Nowadays all shapes of different bunting is hung up in most rooms and would look great in outdoor rooms like conservatories and summer houses if in use. Made from fabric these will last for ages.



Tree Decorations

Lots of shapes and sizes can be made. A throwback to the traditional wooden ones are also a treat.

Another item for the treat that is a sort of decoration is a skirt to cover the legs of the stand and hopefully to keep the needles off the floor.



Cards

The first item that is usually thought about In December is the writing of cards. This could be another family tradition of making ones to send,  instead of using paper, glitter and glue some could have a cross stitch motif or fabric on the front.



Christmas Stockings

Placed either at the end of the bed or by the chimney for Santa to fill and not forgetting the family dog or cat either.

These are easy to make and can last and last throughout the years.



Cushions

Make some new cushion covers with lovely fabrics showing off the festive season. 



Fabric

There is a whole wealth of fabrics around that show a festive feature great for tableware, bunting, cushions, Christmas stockings and tree decorations.



Hope you enjoy making all your Christmas craft decorations and don't forget the cake as well...
