Feeling crafty this Christmas?

Embrace the festive season with the magic of craft! Fill your rooms with cheer during the lead up to Christmas Day.

Get your creative juices flowing and have a shot at making some of these awesome kid-friendly DIYs with the family. Sourced from an array of awesome crafting blogs, we’re talking about simple, straight-forward projects that don’t require much time or demand extravagant supplies.

Recycling materials and creating your own decorations does not only add that special touch of personal flair but, even better still, is a fantastic way to practice sustainability! You won’t need to buy decorations when you can create your own to treasure forever.
