Christmas crafting is something I have done for quite a long time, and I thought now would be a great time to share some older handmade decorations. Projects previously featured here on the blog, for those who haven’t seen them before.
My “main” craft for a very long time, was cross-stitch, something I have plans to get back into more next year. A lot of my handmade decorations feature cross-stitching, so here are some posts I thought I would share from last year…
I look forward to visiting the local Christmas market here in Truro every year; it’s always great fun and a great chance to see some wonderful handmade products made in Cornwall. I always try to do a bit of my Christmas shopping here; and there are usually some cheeky samples to enjoy too!
While I was having a wander, I thought I’d take some photos of some of the brilliant handmade products around the market! There were SO many stalls I didn’t get a chance to take photos of; as it was extremely busy, but here are a few things I loved!
Hoop art, is definitely more popular now than it was a few years ago, and it is a great craft for making a gift, or even decorating at Christmas, there are SO many great Christmas fabric designs which are really good fun for many projects; and it is nice to have a different use if you’re not big on sewing, as I wasn’t up til a couple of years ago!

Christmas fabric is also a great eco friendly alternative to paper for wrapping! Especially for those harder to wrap gifts!
For the first post in my Blogmas 2018 series I will be sharing how I made my gorgeous bauble wreath! This was so fun to make, and looks SO good hanging in my hallway.
This was a really fun piece to make, and so simple too. They are so versatile and it is possible to make them using all kinds of Christmas decorations. I used simple spherical baubles, and some a beaded strand to make the one in this post.
My craft room has possibly been my longest running work-in-progress and may never be finished! But that is life as a creative person right? In this post I share a fun, quick upcycled notice board project!

The craft room room is a blend of repurposed and upcycled furniture; as well as handmade doors for my craft cupboard, and a variety of handmade decorative pieces.
