On The First Craft of Christmas

On the 12 days leading up to Christmas Eve I’ll be sharing with you some of my favourite Christmas-based crafty activities from all over the internet. (Most of them will be – or have been – tried by yours truly!)

The 12

I am aware that traditionally the Twelve Days of Christmas begin on Christmas Day and continue to 5th January. But I don’t care. I can’t list 12 pre-Christmas crafts after the fact, can I?

So without any further ado…

On The First Craft of Christmas, I will share with you:

Decorative Festive Candle Jars

I  saw these over on Craft and Creativity last year and made them as part of my Christmas Eve bonanza of craft.

They’re dead easy – made using baby food (or any others) jars, tippex and wire. Oh and candles! They’re also a good crafty activity to make with kids, because besides lighting the candles, there’s nowt too dangerous about them.

Come back tomorrow for a mash-up of the Second Craft of Christmas and “I Made That!” Monday.

What are some of your favourite pre-Christmas makes and activities?

  1. These are so cute HM! I really love them and how effective are they with so little materials required – very! You always make me want to be a more hands on crafter, maybe a will find a hobby I love next year and stick to it. Oh, have you ever made any if those tiny little snow globes out of upside down jars? Reckon you’d nail those perfectly. So excited for this series of posts from you! xoxo

    1. Totally, they’re minimal effort, max return. Ooh, if you do I will love hearing all about it!
      Ahaha, as a matter of fact I have made those – think they’re…Wednesday’s(?) post? Idk, I suck at planning. Great minds think alike! They are cute as, and something else that is also pretty easy! I’m enjoying doing these! Just what I needed to kick me back into blogging. 🙂 xx
