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 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.

We LOVE making our own Christmas Decorations from Air Drying Clay. Each year we add to our ever-growing collection of seasonal decorations with more ornaments.

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 »

In the past, we have made fingerprint snowman ornaments and also heart ornaments. I have seen Fingerprint Christmas Tree Ornaments made with salt dough, but I wanted to use white air drying clay.
DIY Believe Christmas Plaque is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. I adore Christmas and I love creating so it goes without saying that I love to fill my home with seasonal pieces that have meaning. This Believe Christmas Plaque came about to remind my boys’ that as long as we believe in Christmas the magic will always be there. Last year was the first year that both of my boys’ didn’t believe in Father Christmas and we had to have that conversation. You know the one I mean, that not believing in the big man doesn’t mean that you stop believing in the magic of Christmas. In fact, their job becomes even more more »

Remembrance Feather Bauble is a paid collaboration with Bostik. These remembrance feather baubles are so simple to make. Losing someone you love is hard and celebrations seem to make that loss so much more acute in my experience. However, small things can help us remember the people we love and bring comfort when we are missing a loved one.
