I don’t know about you, but I love Christmas, but hate buying gifts just because you have to. Don’t get me wrong, gifts are lovely and I like giving them, but not just for the sake of Christmas. Sometimes it’s nice to have a go at getting creative, save a bit of money and make a gift that you know the receiver will love. Because of this, I will be showing you my favourite Christmas DIY projects that I have found and will be giving as gifts… as long as they turn out alright!

It’s sometimes really difficult to get in the Christmas spirit. I find it increasingly difficult. When I was little, I used to love making paper chains, wreaths made out of plastic bag handles and hung up all manner of decorations. No. They never looked good. My Mum always hated them as they just cluttered the room and ok, I now understand why they were always taken down.
So, here are a few ideas that I have found for decorating the more modern home (but still with a hint of fun and childish Christmas spirit!)

I don’t know about you, but I love making my own Christmas cards. Yes, it is a bit time consuming, but kids love it and you can just do them for those really special people in your life if you just wanted to do a few. I’ve found some really lovely ideas online and I thought I’d share them with you!
