Merry Christmas!!! Hello everyone! Here is my Christmas post special along side a five of my own Christmas crafts and DIYs that have been made over the years!

Firstly this plain,wooden 'Noel' sign was cheaply purchased and then decopatched in lovely Christmas paper- it looks great and rivals some signs you may find in some shops.

Next, this groovy tree was handmade by my lovely nan. The base is firm in order to weigh the tree down and the tree itself was sewn and then stuffing was used in order to 'plump it up'

These jolly snowmen were also decopatched, after picking up the paper mâché plain version from hobby craft a few years ago (I think they still do them around this time of year). I must admit they look quite scary in this image!

This 'Let it Snow' sign was anoth decopatch project and is simply positioned onto the wall using blue-tack.

Finally, my festive cushions! These were sewn using Christmassy fat-quarters and then also stuffed. They look fabulous under the tree and fill up any space that has not be used by presents!

Hope you enjoyed this quick post on Christmas Eve!! Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and new year! Keep the Creative Juices Flowing! :) x

Last Minute Christmas Crafty Ideas

Hi Everyone! I'm here to help with some last-minute, forgotten DIY present and decoration ideas. In total, after rummaging through Pinterest I found 8 really neat crafty ideas for this winter holiday. So, let's begin...

Firstly, DIY lippy (Lip Balm), I'm in love with the idea of making your own cosmetics, and making them look stunning with personalised labels and would be really nice to give away as a homemade Christmas gift! They're so cute! Might have to make some myself! They're especially great in these winter months when everyone's lips start cracking and really are an essential.

Next, here is another DIY gift idea. Why not take a plain white mug and personalise it using either a marker pen or a sharpie. The great thing about sharpies, is that they come in an array of colours- so get experimenting, then give them as a loving present.

Thirdly, I have found some paper craft ideas. These cards are absolutely adorable and would look stunning on a fireplace next to some Christmas stockings! They are also relatively easy, and could again be personalised. The name tags could be made from bits and bobs lying around the house- yet they still look really beautiful!

I am in love with the next two decorative ideas; a hot chocolate bauble and Christmas tree shelves. To create the bauble, simply fill a clear bauble with coca powder, marshmallows and other deliciousness and replace the top. Hang on your tree and enjoy whenever you wish! The Christmas tree may not be as easy to recreate- however it does give you some inspiration and ideas for decorations.

Finally, no Christmas is complete without a DIY snow globe- maybe place in a tree, snowman or reindeer into an old jar? Another warming gift idea; crochet infinity scarf! They're all in fashion and are great to create yourself!

And there we go! 8 Christmassy DIY ideas! Merry Christmas or as they say in the USA: Happy Holidays! Remember to comment, share and follow this blog on all of my social media, it really is appreciated! Keep the Creative Juices Flowing! :)x
