1. Crochet Ribbon Christmas Tree

We love the unusual look of these trees made simply by creating a ribbon and folding it over crocheted baubles! It's a great project for using up oddments of yarn, too.

2. Chain Loop Snowflake

Just look at how delicate this little snowflake is! It is intended as a gift topper, but it's so easy to make you could easily string a handful together to create a wintry garland.

3. Chocolate Orange Cosies

The best things come in threes, just like these adorable reindeer, robin and Christmas pudding chocolate orange gift covers. You could always put a real orange inside, but we'd be happier with the chocolate.

4. Desk Top Christmas tree

The beauty of this project is its simplicity, so it's a great way for beginners to get into holiday crafting. It's great for any green yarn you have laying around, plus you can use up old buttons as decorations!

5. Cosy Mitten Garland

We love the whimsical look of this garland, and it's made with real mittens, which you could remove from the decoration and give as gifts next year.

7. Colourful Christmas Trees

The mini pom-pom instructions alone would be great, but these merry and bright stripy trees look great and it would be easy to make several of them in an afternoon.

8. Rudolph the Cubic Reindeer

There'd be no Christmas without Rudolph, and we're in awe of this little project. It's straightforward and adorable to boot! Why not make eight black-nosed reindeer and one with a red nose?

9. What a Hoot!

Seriously, how much cuter can it get than an owl in a Santa hat? All the components are made up separately then stitched together, and it's much more simple than it looks!

10. Crocheted Christmas Baubles

These ornaments are made to fit around 5cm polystyrene balls, but you could easily stuff them with scraps of yarn to minimise waste.

11. The Grinch Decoration

There are two types of people when it comes to Christmas; the Cindy-Lou Whos and the Grinches. Which one are you?

Craft Your Way To Mindfulness
Craft Your Way To Mindfulness

Crafting really can change your life! You will have heard the term 'mindfulness' everywhere, but how can you get involved in this new-found practise? Crafting is always the answer. With fast-paced jobs and busy schedules, it's important we take time for ourselves and make sure that we properly de-stress. In our opinion, the only way to truly do this is to get creative. You may sit down in front of the TV, or dive into a book, but if you're anything like us, you'll find that your mind is still wandering. When we're crafting we are completely invested in what we're doing – whether that be concentrating on tricky stitches or choosing which coloured pencil to pick up next. The point is, our mind is calm, and our mind is mindful. Watching yarn turn into a beautiful garment is one of the greatest feelings and is certainly classed as mindfulness – if this sounds familiar then you're already a master. Below you'll find 15 – yes 15! – FREE projects that you can download right away. Take 10 minutes of me-time on us. Go on, you deserve it. Simply click on the picture to find the project!
