Decorate your tree and gifts with beautiful macramé stars! The macramé technique involves tying knots and braiding string in various combinations and patterns. Begin by attaching the yarn to the wooden ring with a lark's head knot. This will be the base of your star. When you are finished, secure the ends with Panokitt Quick glue. Macramé can be tricky at first, but once you've gotten the hang of it, it's hard to stop.
Impress your loved ones with creative and beautifully wrapped gifts! First, wrap a Christmas gift with the wrapping paper of your choice. Then weave ribbon into a checked pattern around the gift. To create contrast, use ribbon in various materials. Overlap the ends of the ribbon on the back of the gift and glue in place. Apply snow spray to the pine cones for a wintry, festive touch.
Give the coolest Christmas gifts of the year with Hama beads! Beading pegboards is a fun craft for all ages. Use a pegboard to make the beaded figures. In this example, we've made a polar bear and a reindeer. When you are satisfied, place ironing paper over the design and iron the beads together. Iron both sides to make sure the figure is extra durable. Decorate your parcels by attaching the figures with string.
Wrap festive gifts with pipe cleaners and decorations! Shape pipe cleaners into letters and glue them to parcels along with other decorations. A hot glue gun is helpful to use here. Then brush with Kids Quick Glue and sprinkle with glitter. Don't hold back on your decorations. The more, the better!
Put on your creativity cap and paint your own Christmas paper! In the example, we used: Hobbylack, a white Gelly roll pen and a Posca pen. Draw the designs free-hand or use templates. The ornaments are painted with Hobbylack and the strings are hand-drawn. We made the stars with a gingerbread biscuit cutter which we filled in with a pen.
Make beautiful Christmas gifts with nature-inspired decorations! First, wrap your gifts. Combine natural paper and printed gift wrap for a stylish look. Tie jute twine around the parcel. Then glue on nature-inspired decorations, such as pine cones, orange peel and moss. A hot glue gun is helpful to use here. Finish by tying a tag to the parcel with string.
Surprise your friends and family with homemade Christmas gift tags! Start by rolling out the clay. If the clay is new and therefore sticky and hard to work with, you can leave it out for a little while. Make pretty patterns in the clay, for example with a glass or vase. Then punch out your tags with gingerbread biscuit cutters. You can also use your imagination and make your own shapes with a ruler. Write a nice message on the back with a silver or gold pen.
Homemade gift tags will add a personalised touch to your gifts! Cut out a tag from hobby card. Decorate the edges of the tag by sewing or drawing stitches. Cut out any design from felt that you like and sew it on, along with wiggly eyes, pompoms, ribbon and buttons. Here, we've made a cheerful snowman that is perfect for one of the children's gifts. Let your creativity guide you!
When it isn't an option to gather for Christmas, why not send a surprise Christmas gift by post instead! Wrap your parcel like a Christmas gift and it will brighten up your recipient's letterbox. If your gift is soft, cumbersome, or fragile, it is best to place it in a box and surround it with tissue paper. This way, you can be sure the contents won't shake around during transport. Glue all details flat against the parcel with a hot glue gun, and your gift is ready to make a safe journey all the way to the recipient's tree in time for Christmas!
Make pretty felt flowers to attach to your gifts! The stems of the flowers are made of wire wrapped in floral tape. To make a chrysanthemum, cut out a strip of felt, fold it in half and cut notches into it. Glue along the bottom of the entire strip of felt and coil it up to make a flower, which you attach to the stem. To make a hyacinth, begin the same way. Then cut the felt into smaller pieces and glue them one at a time to the stem. A hot glue gun is helpful to use when making felt flowers.
