I’ve been scouring the web for Christmas craft ideas to make festive decorating more personal this year… I may have to put my hands up, surrender, and become the latest recruit to the craft revolution, because I’ve discovered so many ideas I don’t know which to choose as my first project!
After much deliberation (Lloyd Grossman-era Masterchef style) I’ve pulled out my top three homemade craft ideas from Housetohome‘s extensive festive portfolio. And these ones won’t leave you with glue-coated hands or days-worth of attempting to scrub glitter off every exposed surface, including your hair…!
roomenvy - make your own christmas stocking
I don’t care how old you are, everyone should have a Christmas stocking by the living room fire. And maybe Santa will give you extra ‘nice’ points if you make your own (and the rest of the family’s) oversized traditional mini-gift carrier?
roomenvy - make Christmas gift vouchers more personal
Ok, so you’ve run out of ideas and had to buy gift vouchers/ theatre tickets / any paper goods that can’t be wrapped. Oh, but they can! Personalise the ‘impersonal’ gift with these clever little present pouches. Reindeer friend optional (but recommended!)
roomenvy - wintry paper lanterns
LOVE these glowing paper lanterns – they have such a welcoming festive feel. All it takes to light garden path to the front door, or add a glow to your living room, is some paper bags, tealights and a hole punch. Who said Blue Peter?!
