It’s no secret that I love a bit of handmade decorating, no matter what the season! I tried my hand at a couple of kits and some easy craft ideas for Christmas decor, and thought I’d share them in the one post!
I’ll also share this week’s fun Christmas bullet journal spread.
It’s Day 2! In this post I’m sharing how I got creative with a wooden Gingerbread House! It was a great excuse to do something a little bit different, and try something new.
As much as I love the idea of making a real gingerbread house, it’s not something I could leave out at Christmas, because of the cats, and because generally I think it’s kind-of gross. And also, because we REALLY don’t need more treats and stuff at this time of year! So a wooden one seems practical!
It seems like far too recently I was posting Christmas content! This year, has without a doubt been one of the strangest! But here we are bringing some shine and festivity to the end of the year; with 12 Days of Christmas 2020!
I’d go out on a limb and say this might be the last one of these for a while, but you never know what’s going to happen in a year! After all, this blog is almost one year old now, and somehow I’m now self-hosted, and things are very different , but also somehow the same. And if you know me at all; you know I LOVE Christmas!
Most of these “Day 1 of blogmas” posts start with a plan…
I planned this a little while ago… Well, when I say I planned this project, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas cushion. It was choosing the design that took a little more time!
Way back when I planned the Halloween Cat Cushion, I also planned this project! (How’s that for organised?!) So when I picked up the plain black cotton cushion cover in Ikea, I also picked up a red one!
Last year in the Crafty Lass ADVENTure advent calendar, there were a few things I wasn’t totally sure what I would find a use for, and one of them was the polystyrene ball… I wanted to make a string wrap bauble for the tree in red and green, as these are the colours we tend to go for in the living room at Christmas.
In the end I took inspiration from some of the handmade decorations we have on our tree, some of which were made by Stu’s Grandma! I kind of like the amount of memories and mementos on our tree.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes December feels so incredibly hectic, and you really want to be creative, or maybe get crafty with kids, but you don’t have time? Try some of these ideas to make your own quick and easy Christmas cards!
This is just a small list of ideas for you to be able to create some cute handmade Christmas cards!
It’s time to reveal the wonderful gifts from the #CraftBlogClub Secret Santa 2018!
Though I arrange #CraftBlogClub now; I have been a part of it for so much longer. The annual Secret Santa is one of my favourite of the regular challenges and events throughout the #CraftBlogClub year.
I really like giving and receiving handmade gifts; and the wide range of crafts, and talents in #CraftBlogClub means it’s always a varied and fun activity at Christmas!
