Blogmas Day Eight: Stick On A Christmas Film and Get Crafting Today With These Simple Homemade Creation Ideas


Hey Lovelies, 

Getting crafty is one of the things I love to do during the holiday season. From simple paper snowflakes to more delicate pom pom wreaths, I love spending time making them throughout December. However, I know that it can be hard to really find the time to do them. With work, family and a pandemic to get through, taking five minutes is key though in making sure you look after yourself and your wellbeing.

Thinking about some of the things I have done this year, I thought I would share some of the ways that I have decorated my home, without spending any money or very little of it. Seeing them on my tree, fireplace and even the doors of our home have made them very special.

Stick on a Christmas film or TV special and take a few moments for yourself with these crafty ideas…

Go to A Pottery Session: Early on in November, my mum and I went to a pottery place near to our home and painted a few Christmas tree shaped plates for me, her and my dad. Costing £60 for the three, we loved getting stuck into a craft fuelled activity. I love looking at them and even though my dad won't be able to enjoy his, we will still place it out for him. Look up to see if you can get at home kits or find out if your local centre is doing kits you can do as well.

Pom Poms Made Easy: Using card or even your hand, you can make a load of pom poms with some wool/yarn to make all sorts. Watching YouTube, I saw people make rugs for gifts, however, we decided to make some wreaths with £1 wreath rings and glue from Poundland. Adding in some lights, they have now made the room we will eat Christmas dinner in really pop. You can also make pom pom decorations for your tree with wool, string and some glue. All of which you can get for £1 or less.

Bake A Festive Cake: Take a look in your cupboards and get baking lovelies. I am certain that many of you will have the ingredients to make a festive fruit cake or simple cookies. If you make more than you need, you can also give them out as presents or to your neighbours as a goodwill gesture.

Make A Paper Lantern or Snowflake: Go back in time to when you were little and make a paper lantern or snowflake. String them up over your dining table or place in your window. Christmas memories will soon come back to life before you know it.

Knitting Through the Snow: Forget going out in the cold and snuggle up with some knitting. Create a festive scarf to wear or gift. Make a little Nativity scene to put out. Get a cuddly toy pattern and make the little ones in your life a treat. Knitting can be a soothing thing whatever you do. YouTube has lots of videos to help teach you or ask a friend who may know how to do it to teach you. Staying in together will be a fun way to beat the chill.

What do you like to do during the holiday season to relax or to get crafty lovelies? For me, it is always about baking. I also love to make Hama Bead designs. Let me know what you create in the comments below!
