Clove and Orange Pomanders perfect for Christmas 1

Clove and Orange pomanders are perfect for Christmas. They add a fabulously festive touch and scent to your home and for me are the smell of Christmas. I used to make these with my mum over advent when I was younger as we never put the tree up until after my birthday on 20th December, so they are so evocative of that time for me.


Simple Winter Wool Forest Wreath 1

Simple Winter Wool Forest Wreath is a paid-for collaboration. This wreath was inspired by this beautiful winter wonderland wreath I pinned last year but I had already made a simple white winter wreath last year using a feather bower and I wanted to mix it up a little. So I had a look through my craft stash and sound 3 balls of finger knitting wool that I thought would be perfect.

Make your Own Homemade Christmas Crackers

I am a big fan of Christmas Crackers, I love the excitement and anticipation of pulling a cracker at Christmas. So why not make Christmas Day go with a bang by making your own Homemade Christmas crackers.  They are super simple to make and you can add your own unique gifts, jokes and party hats in order to personalise your Christmas Day. I know it is super easy it is to pick up a ready-made box from any supermarket, however, in order to get gifts that my family will use and not just tat they are often expensive and really wasteful. I love how making crackers adds some wow factor to Christmas more »
