Fancy an alternative Christmas tree? We LOVE this shabby chic design made with drift wood - plus, no pesky needles to hoover up!

Fancy a traditional floral wreath with a contemporary colour scheme? Then look no further than this gorgeous design from Quince Brighton - step-by-step instructions are in our bumper December issue. 

 Paper Wreath

Or for a contemporary alternative to floral wreaths why not try our gorgeous paper wreath by Lydia Crook - to find out how to make it buy our bumper December issue on sale Thursday 7th November.

What's the best thing about Christmas? Most (if not all) in the Making office will say FOOD! We'd be head over heels with whoever presented us with these sweet (in more ways than one) gingerbread cookie trees.  

Find a recipe and instructions here:

Crackers Main _0497 (1)

Fed up of store bought crackers? Add some style, flair and your own pick of treats and cheesey jokes with handmade crackers. The ones pictured above are made by our very own Torie Jayne - this is one of a whopping 50 festive makes that feature in our December issue of Making. Don't miss out on your copy! 

Got any Christmas craft ideas? We'd love to see your festive handmade projects - post up your pics on our facebook or twitter pages. 

Happy making!
