The festive season can be a hectic time for us with presents to knit and decorations to crochet, and it certainly doesn’t help that our loved ones believe we can whip up a jumper in a matter of minutes! We’re good, but we’re not that good. We’re here to help you organise your schedule with loads of projects and inspiration to keep you on track for the busiest time on the crafty calendar.
Preparation is key
An organised craft room is a productive one, so take a little me-time to clear your creative clutter. Make a gift-making to-do list and check out this clever blog to learn how to utilise your space in the most effective way.
Get going on garments
Before we start frantically weaving in the ends of our last-minute makes, take some time to start on gorgeous garments for our friends and family. This adorable jumper is perfect for all the grandchildren – if you’re a beginner crafter and struggle with intarsia, why not knit or crochet a festive motif and sew it onto a plain shop-bought jumper instead? Don’t forget Christmas Jumper Day on 14th December 2018!
With a month to go until the big day, it’s time to make our favourite thing: toys! What we love most about these sets is that if you run out of time to make them, you can give the kits as gifts instead.
Send a card
Festive Friday on 30th November is the time to post your Christmas cards – why not make your own with knitted or crocheted motifs?
Milk and cookies
Christmas Eve isn’t complete unless you’ve put your stocking out for Santa to fill with presents. Make that tradition even more special with a handmade gift that can be treasured for years to come – you can even personalise it by embroidering the recipient’s name.
About to lug the same old tinsel out of the loft? Stop. Right. There. Christmas should be full of colour, so use the month of December to treat yourself to some decorations that match every room in your home. You can quickly whip up these baubles with our free download.
Forgot the parents-in-law and ran out of crafting time? Don’t fear, Biscuiteers is here to save the day. Check out the delicious range of gift ideas and personalised treats. If you haven’t got anyone left to buy for, we recommend you treat yourself to a box. It would be rude not to.
