Nothing says wintry Christmas like polar bears! Bring your love of the arctic straight into your home by dotting paper bears around your child's bedroom, or make polar bear-inspired greeting cards for loved ones. Make miniature stuffed pals too and place them under your tree for festive scenery that guests will adore.
The recent craze of copper, rose gold and bronze metallic embellishments means that your crafts can be as eclectic as possible. Add gleaming accents to gift tags or greeting cards to surprise someone special, spray paint the leaves on your wreath, or make Christmas poppers using metallic paper.
These little creations are always a bit hit during Christmas. You can make a family of painted pine cone or pompom elves, or design felted elves to hang on your tree. Make snowcapped mountains and attach the elves to candy canes with strings attached to give the impression that they are on a zip-line.
