Christmas is an exciting time of the year, however after all the frenetic parties and shopping it can be quite nice to sit, relax, and do something creative. With this mind we’ve put together some great festive DIY activities for you to relax with.
Make your own snow globe
This DIY Mason jar snow globe is one of the prettiest we’ve found on Pinterest, and would make a great gift or decoration for the mantelpiece. Find the guide on how to make this on Simple Craves & Olive Oil. Once you have mastered this why not make a few in various sizes to create a real centrepiece for your Christmas dinner table?
Gold tipped Paper Feathers
We love how sophisticated these feather gift decorations are, and they would certainly make your gifts more memorable. Lia Griffith has a PDF you can print out to assist you to create your own.
Make your place settings
We found these sweet and effective Christmas candy cane name holders on Fun with Holiday Crafts. To create these inexpensive holders all you’ll need is Candy canes, ribbon, a hot glue gun, and cards printed with your guests name in a font of your choice.
Make your own wreath
This DIY wreath is so inventive and will help to use up all those left over bits of wrapping paper. Pinterest is filled with ideas on how to create your own and we love this one! Its delicate nature means it will probably be best kept indoors for your guests to admire. To see the full step-by-step guide head to Centsational Girl
Build a gingerbread house
There’s something really satisfying about building and decorating your own gingerbread house. To bake your own house take a look at the queen of baking - Mary Berry’s recipe here, however if baking is not your thing, don’t worry you can pick up sets of premade pieces and ready-made icing easily. We love the winter wonderland theme of the house below which we found on Biscuiteers.
Activities such as these are a great way to get into the festive spirit and can also create a welcome break from the busy weeks around Christmas.
We hope you find these suggestions useful and from everyone at Plumbs, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
