Get the whole family (visitors included!) hands on with this homemade wreath – made from cutout hand prints. Full tutorial courtesy of blogger My Name Is Snickerdoodle here.
For the brave there’s this slightly messier ‘Shivery Snow Paint’ activity from the brilliant Growing A Jeweled Rose blog. All you need to get started is shaving cream, white school glue, peppermint extract and iridescent glitter… We can’t wait to see how these turn out!
These adorable snowman clothes pegs are actually useful, too! You can use them to clip photos to a frame or stand Christmas cards on the shelf. How to here.
If you’ve got a party planned why not make these snowman masks that double up as selfie photobooth props? Instructions by Meaningful Mama blog here.
A little lighthearted humour never fails and we think these cute reindeer finger puppets will keep little ones giggling for hours! You can customise the reindeer shape to make different characters and put on a puppet show! By Artsy Momma blog.
They’re just our suggestions – there are tons more out there, what do you love to do? Let us know! If you have a go at any of our Christmas crafts don’t forget to share your makes with us on Twitter or Facebook!
