We love a Handmade Christmas.
It’s getting close chaps – only 14 sleeps until Christmas, here is some link love to great ideas to help you make your Christmas Handmade.
These are all fun things you can do in the next few weeks running up to Christmas.
Handmade Christmas Cards
Some might think its’ too late for these but why not make a few for close friends and families that you will see in the run up to Christmas? Great practice run for next year if you are the brave type. I’ve found 25 is my limit on handmade cards.
Handmade Christmas Stockings
Nothing better than a story to go with your Christmas Stocking, so make your own, make your kids one, give your pet one.
This is the easiest Christmas Stocking pattern I can find. It’s well laid out and easy to follow.
Handmade Christmas Decorations
There are soooo many ideas out there. Here is a link to 3 super Easy Christmas Decorations that are tried and tested.
Love this Star above found here, I want to make a version with foraged sticks and LED lights.
These lovely white plaster cast pinecones gave us the idea to whitewash foraged pinecones and finding a way to hang them on your tree or scatter them around as decor.
Lovely Felt Decoration ideas, I’ve even seen older kids do awesome jobs on these, remember they are handmade so don’t be too precious, just enjoy!
Are you a crochet aficionado? Try something like this (maybe for next year!)
Lets get our Wreaths up quick before all your friends and family visit. Here are our faves that can be collected, organized and made on a rainy day…

And if you have time after all that here are some cute ideas for handmade gifts.
Fabric-wrapped paper white bulbs (see above). Another awesome DIY via Poppytalk. Contributor post by Erick and Emily of Heidi’s Bridge. This has always been a great and thoughtful gift, we always used Amaryllis.
This is an older link, but we just love this cypress planted mugs by Design Sponge.
Probably the most attainable of all Handmade Christmas Gifts: Handmade Food Gifts.
Have fun, don’t be too precious, start small and with each crafty thing you try I promise it will get easier.
