I am starting to think about the Christmas gifts I am going to make for friends and family. I know it’s only November still, but it pays to think ahead! When we were girls, my sister and I used to make all of our presents. We often made sweets like truffles and peppermint creams.
This year, I’m spending lots of times making Christmas tree faeries like this:
…and Yule faeries like this:
I am even making Frost faeries!
Can you tell I am writing a book about making felted faeries and their homes? They are taking over the house…but you can keep up to date with that project at Faerierealms.
A few years ago, I wrote a craft book for children. It gives lots of ideas for seasonal things to make and do.
One of my favourite activities is the Snow Queen crown – modelled here by my daughter when she was tiny.
You could make one, from a strip of card, and icicles made from foil and tinsel. Great to wear if you are singing some rather frosty songs to entertain your family 🙂
Decorations are fun to make, too. I remember making these lanterns when I was a girl. You can even make them and pop sweets inside for the Christmas dinner table – a lovely present for you to make for everyone.
So, tell me – what are you making for Christmas this year?
