- Put Together A Christmas Garland For Your Fireplace
If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your home then you will know how stunning it looks when it has it’s Christmas garland placed over it. Whilst they are much easier to buy, creating your own can be an inexpensive and creative alternative. Simply make a rope using two pairs of tights, then wrap bits of woodland around them. Once you have done this, you can add in any decorations you wish.
Although this is one of the more difficult Christmas crafts, it’s also one of the most rewarding as you’ll have absolutely everyone complimenting you on your stunning garland. You may even have people asking you to make theirs!

Christmas tree decorations often hold a special meaning, and what could be more special than ornaments you have made yourself? Whether you make them purely for decoration or you create something to commemorate each year – you’ll feel super nostalgic as you get them out again each year.
- Make Your Own Christmas Cards
Writing Christmas cards has become one of those things that people no longer enjoy about Christmas. You get the same cards year in and year out and only give to those that still give to you so you don’t seem ‘rude’. To add some magic back into Christmas cards, why not consider making your own? There are lots of different ways to craft your own including designing them online, making them from scratch or sending a family photo card.
