Christmas craft ideas can help add a special welcoming touch to your bedroom this season. Holidays are a time for families to spend quality time together and this often means that people travel to stay with friends and relatives. It can be exciting getting your home ready for your relatives and adding special touches to their bedroom will make them feel more welcome.
For example, you could make a seasonal decorative cover for a tissue box by their bedside. You could add scented fabric patches to the hangers for the closet. If they have children who are staying in your home, you could make a seasonal mobile or perhaps an advent calendar for older children and hang on the walls of their room. Guests often forget shampoos and other toiletries so having a little basket with the selection of these items is a thoughtful gesture.
Christmas craft ideas aren’t just useful for decorating your home. They’re also a great way to keep your children occupied especially when they are so excited about the holiday season. The weather outside is likely to be miserable so children can spend a lot of time indoors. It is more valuable use of their time to engage them in making different decorations than to allow them to watch television for hours at a time.
It is traditional to have a spicy ring for the kitchen and these are very easy to make. You will simply need to buy some narrow gold ribbon cord and some firm card. You will need a decorative ribbon and a range of spices. The spices should include a selection from bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, mustard seeds, white and green cardamom, black and green pepper, some star anise and some allspice. You glue a pattern of the different spices to the cards interspersing with bay leaves and cinnamon sticks. When you are finished, spray the piece with lacquer to set the spices and to add shine. This beautiful decoration will also add a wonderful smell to your kitchen this holiday season. It is also an example of how you can use Christmas craft ideas to make simple gives for your friends this year.
