I absolutely love this time of year, with glittery decorations going up and the jingle of Christmas songs on the radio playing out at work. It’s also my favourite time of year to get crafty, so today I wanted to bring together ten of my favourite festive DIY’s from some of my go-to bloggers. From how to build a cranberry wreath to creating your own Christmas room fragrance, these projects will definitely get you feeling ready to be big man in red to arrive.
What I love about the projects I’ve picked for you today is that they’re all super easy to do – you know me, nothing needs to take too long or involve too many tools. But what they have to do is look stylish, which is why you’ll find everything from table settings to party shoes.
As part of their Christmas campaign this season, British department store House of Fraser have launched the Your Christmas, Your Rules initiative. It’s about celebrating Christmas on your terms, your traditions and your own style. Whether it’s champagne for breakfast or dancing on the dining table, it’s all about celebrating Christmas how you want. And part of that campaign sees HoF release a series of how-to crafty videos so you can add a little homemade touch to your home. If you scroll down you’ll find my favourite pick of the bunch but first let’s get started with the rest of my top ten.
