After our Ultimate Christmas Guide last week, we figured we’d dive deeper into getting your ready for the big day. This week, let’s take a look at some adorable crafts that you and the kids – or the whole family – can get involved in.
Each idea is (sorry, not food related) using scraps bits and bobs you might have around the house, so they’re quick and easy little activities to keep you festive!
If you’re a sewer, or a keen crafter, chances are, you’ll have collected a fair amount of ribbons in your time; too many to know what to do with them all! This super simple tree decorating – A tree for the tree, you may say – is easy and looks perfectly shabby chic. Simply tie ribbons around a twig and voi la, that’s literally it. You could do different coloured trees in purples, reds and any other ribbons you have left!
Again, we’ve all got spare buttons laying around! Some of us may even buy tubs of mis-match buttons, but no names are being mentioned….
Create some personal and unique Christmas cards for all the family by transforming your spare buttons into adorable Christmas Baubles for cards!
If you find yourself bored in front of the telly this week, how about cracking out the crochet needle and giving these a whirling? Steal the yarn back from the cat and get to it! These make such cute Christmas tree decorations, or could be laid about the house throughout the whole Winter period.

We all have that one odd, stray sock that never finds a perfect match, so let’s make them into something new: Like an adorable snow-sock man! These cutes fellas are made of sock, fillers ( rice or something of your choice), and scrap fabrics. And how could you deny these cuties a place on the windowsill this Winter?
