7 last-minute Christmas makes

Stuck for time? Whether you need gifts, cards decorations or bakes, these quick and easy crafts are just the thing!

5 Last-Minute Homemade Gift Ideas

1. Angel cake

No Christmas is complete without an angel, and we're taking the theme over to our baking. This fat-free alternative to Christmas cake is quick and easy to make, and is sure to be a hit with family and friends both young and old. Get the recipe here!

2. Star earrings

Treat your nearest and dearest to handcrafted jewellery this Christmas. A pair of simple yet elegant gemstone earrings is just the thing; they are quick to create and make a stunning gift idea. Try Angela Finch's star earrings in red or green gemstones for a seasonal twist.

3. Animal biscuits

For a creative craft that gets the kids involved, animal biscuits are a safe bet and a fun twist on a classic. They require no advanced skills or special equipment, meaning they can easily be made in an afternoon with no restrictions on the fun.

4. Christmas wish card

It may look intricate, but all it takes to create this pretty Christmas wish card is some card, a little glue, glitter paper, Docrafts Papermania Love Santa collection and a pen. Just weave your paper strips into a star shape, glue onto the card and hand-write your sentiment.

5. Abstract moon card

Ink is a fantastic medium for cardmaking and looks particularly lovely on a festive greeting. Create an abstract moon card with a forest scene bathed in moonlight using Generation Inx inks and a selection of stamps.

6. All the way home card

You don't have to spend endless hours crafting to make something intricate and beautiful (although we usually wouldn't mind!) If you're running late with your makes and don't want it to show, a die-cut creation can be just the thing. Try Tattered Lace's All The Way Home die set and watch your recipients' faces light up.

7. 3D bauble

Homemade Christmas decs don't always get pride of place on the tree, but this delicate 3D bauble will easily stand out amongst the store-bought decorations. Best of all, it's completely customisable and really easy to make.
