10 Festive Craft Ideas

Christmas Clare Youngs felt gift knitting

With advent just around the corner, we're looking forward to getting started on lots of holiday crafting! We've rounded up some of our favourite Christmassy projects whether it's for decorations, gift wrap or handmade cards to get you in the festive spirit!


1. Pom Pom Gift Wrap

If you want your present to stand out under the tree this year, top it off with a fluffy pom pom! We love this gift wrap idea from Lia Griffith - pom poms are easy to make (especially with her detailed step-by-step instructions) and you could make them in any colours you wanted!

2. Alternative Christmas Tree

If you don't have the space for a real Christmas tree then there are loads of crafty ideas out there to make your own alternative Christmas Tree. We like this colourful one from Martha Stewart made from PVC pipes. You could fill the spaces with baubles and decorations or even little presents to find on Christmas day!
