I was hoping to get another craft tutorial post published today, but time has got the better of me this week! I’m going away shortly for the Christmas break with my family and what with packing and getting loose ends tied up with work; I’ve had to give crafting a miss.
But don’t worry, because I’m not going to leave you high and dry! I’ve rounded up some of my favourite Christmas and winter crafts in this post from other bloggers. Do check them out below if you can spare some creative time for yourself before Christmas.
DIY Christmas Embroidery Hoop Wreath
Make a Christmas wreath with a difference! It’s amazing what you can do with an embroidery hoop, some wooden coasters, a glue gun and some seasonal foliage! Check out this great tutorial over at Lydi Out Loud.
DIY Beaded Mittens
A winter craft for bead lovers everywhere – and wouldn’t these make a fabulous Christmas present for someone? Find out how to make these beautiful beaded mittens over at The House That Lars Built!
Small World Inspired Christmas Garland
I just had to include this Christmas craft because it’s inspired by an attraction at Disney, “It’s a Small World” – and it just so happens that I’m going to Disney for my holiday in just a few days time! I must look out for it!
This pretty garland is made with white tinsel, glass baubles and lighting – check out this excellent tutorial over at A Peace of Creativity.
Victorian Storefront Gingerbread House
Love baking? Why not take the gingerbread house to a whole new level! Over at Vintage Kitty, you’ll find a free template plus recipe and instructions for a beautiful, quaint-looking gingerbread toy store.
Easy Rustic Christmas Pillowcases (with Freezer Paper)
Yes, you read that correctly… you can use freezer paper to make the reindeer design on these super cute pillowcases! Find out how in this great tutorial from The Crafting Nook.
I came across some ice lanterns (or candles) that can be put outside in your front porch or alongside your path to light the way for your Christmas guests! If the weather is really cold where you live, these ice lanterns could last for a few days. Learn how to make them over at Practically Functional.
Holiday Throw Free Knitting Pattern
Keep yourself cosy this Christmas with this fun holiday throw – there’s a free knitting pattern and instructions for it over at Gina Michele. Because super large knitting needles are involved, this throw works up quite quickly too.
