Christmas crafts for adults to try this festive season
Christmas crafting is one of the best ways to spend Christmas 2021. Pick a project from our easy, step-by-step guides to start making fabulous Christmas arts and crafts, decorations and handmade Christmas gifts that your friends and family will love.
Christmas is here, so shops are reeling us in with their Christmas adverts, sparkling lights and ornate, festive displays. Despite the fact we can all enjoy a spot of Christmas shopping, nothing sums up the spirit of the season more than lovingly-gifted handmade gifts, decorations and treats.
Not only is embarking on a daily craft decorations project a cosy way to spend a winter evening; handmade Christmas gifts are also a more sustainable way to tell your friends and family you love them and to decorate your home as the festivities get underway.
After last year’s damp squib of a festive season, handmade gifts are also a heartfelt and meaningful way to tell your friends and family how much they mean to you as we’re (hopefully) reunited this Christmas.
Whether you’re looking to craft your own Christmas wreath, make your own Christmas candles to place on a sparkling Christmas table or make personal, handmade gifts for your loved ones, there are plenty of Christmas arts and crafts to keep you busy this festive season.
Take a look at our list of daily use decorations ideas you can easily try your hand at – from decorations for your home and Christmas food and drinks to fun gift ideas. Rest assured, you won’t be making any old stocking fillers. All our guides will show you how to make trending and useful crafts, from stylish dried flower wreaths and Instagram-approved painted candles to collaged Christmas cards and festive sloe berry gin.
Whether you’re a crafting fanatic looking for new ideas or a beginner searching for easy to make arts and crafts that will still look slick and professional, you’ve come to the right place. Merry Christmas and happy crafting.
Give a truly heartfelt Christmas present this year by making your very own gifts by hand. Not only will your loved ones appreciate them so much more, it also means you can make your presents as eco-friendly as possible (there’ll be no excess cardboard or shrink-wrap on these bespoke gifts).
Whether you want to make traditional festive favourites to spread some cheer this season, or you’d prefer to home craft decoration fun items that your friends and family will be able to keep forever, there’s a craft on our list for you.
Christmas is a time to wine and dine. But, instead of automatically going to the supermarket for all your culinary needs, why not try making your favourite festive snack and treats instead. Handmade food and drink is also a great gift idea.
