Get cosy, creative and crafting!

As the nights draw in and the temperature dips, pre-Christmas evenings make the perfect time to keep cosy and get crafting. Not only can you make beautiful creations for yourself, why not turn your talents to making some stunning handmade Christmas presents for your nearest and dearest.

 

Here’s five of our favourite money-saving and creative gift ideas that are easy and fun to do.

 1

No. 1: Peggy football

What a great way to upcycle an old cardboard box. All you need to make this entertaining peggy football game are: pegs, paints, some rods or pencils, a small ball and a cardboard box. Simply decorate your box and cut out the goals. Insert the rods/pencils and paint your pegs and you’re ready to take your first strike.

No. 2: Mugs with a message

This is such a good idea and will appeal to all ages. Simply buy some plain mugs and a Sharpie pen. Decorate the mugs with your message/design.

 

Bake the mugs in an oven for 30 mins at 170 degrees C and then leave to cool before hand washing and using.

 

Perfect for a personalised present.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No 3: Cute candle holder

Another absolutely cracking present idea which, again, is really cheap to create and easy to make. Simply cut out a shape from some newsprint and cover a glass jar with it. Add a tea light and some rustic string and, hey presto, you’ve created a beautiful, bespoke candle holder.

No 4: Badge making

Children and adults alike love creating their own badges. They are really easy to make using a handheld badge making machine. You can design your own artwork and press it into a badge, keyring, mirror, fridge magnet or medal. It’s so simple to do. All you need is a badge maker and component set of your choice to make yourself and others some lovely, unique presents.

No. 5: 3D cards

 

Slightly older children (and adults) might like to make one of these stunning cards for a loved one at Christmas. With just a little planning, this greetings card can be cut and created quite simply, giving the recipient a really lovely three dimensional surprise when opened.
