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…
Some of my Handmade Decorations
Quite a few of my handmade decorations are from kits with various magazines, which is (as anyone who subscribes, or like me, has subscribed in the past) quite heavy on Christmas projects, here are a couple featured on the blog:
These are really cute, and so easy to make! One of my favourite decorations to get out each year!
You can find out more in this post.
These are still some of my favourites! A nice combination of cross-stitch and Christmas fabric, they were super easy to make from the kit, and I ended up making another one later because they were so much fun to make!
You can find the post here.
These were something I saw online loads and really wanted to try out! They are versatile and so incredibly cute! I made far too many of these, including the three above, and made different hats and scarves, as well as a variety of fun buttons to decorate them!

The Cross-Stitch Advent Calendar
This was such a huge undertaking in the end. It took me far too long to get finished, but I got there eventually! 24 individually cross-stitched squares, stitched to felt pockets on a fabric base.
The Advent Calendar, or The Big Project as it became famous among my crafty friends and me over the years it took for me to complete it, finally got finished last year! You can read about it, and see more here!
I hope you enjoyed this look back at some of my past makes!
