That’s why it’s great to get ahead while you can, and our sweet poinsettia card can be made in under an hour, allowing you to batch produce them! The pretty florals, vibrant mirror card and intricate edges all tie in to create a gorgeous result. We have plenty of other card projects on our website, too, so make sure to check them out here!
We all know how important it is to take care of our planet and find eco-friendly alternatives to our supplies – especially during Christmas, where lots of wrapping paper is used and discarded. One clever, crafty solution to this is to sew reusable gift covers – they can be used year after year, and sewn in delightfully appropriate seasonal fabric, such as our Novelty Christmas Fabric Fat Quarters. Have a go at our gift bag guide here.
Christmas stockings are a fun and festive part of the Christmas tradition, whether they're hung above the fireplace or a child's bedpost. According to tradition, these stockings are stuffed with sweets, small toys and other gifts on Christmas Eve by Santa Claus. Why not make your own using our handy guide here and a sweet fabric set like Pets Christmas Patch Fabric Fat Quarters.
Tealights are great at adding a peaceful atmosphere to the festive celebrations, and their holders are lots of fun to decorate. Our tealight holder guide here uses self adhesive card and a cutting machine to create a precious festive scene, which can then be stuck on the tealight holder for a fab festive decoration. How lovely would it look lit in the centre of the table during Christmas dinner?
Handmade ornaments add a charming touch to your seasonal decorations, and are great fun to craft – why not have a go at our felt ornaments here? There are four fun styles, including a robin, snowman, Santa and a figgy pudding. They’re all simple to sew too, so it’s a great opportunity to craft with kids. Just keep a close eye on the sharp objects like scissors and needles.
If you prefer beautiful, delicate ornaments to cheeky felt motifs, our snow-effect glass baubles are perfect for you. They use a snow-edged bauble kit, 3D snow effect paste and clear glass baubles like Flat Bottom Glass Baubles to create gorgeous snow-like decorations. You could decorate them with pretty seamless patterns, or write sweet or meaningful messages like ‘Baby’s First Christmas’, that will be treasured for years.
