These mini ginger bread houses are simply adorable. Wrap them in clear plastic and tie with a ribbon to give as a present, or serve to guests as a delightfully festive sweet treat.

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.
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.
Why not make these cute festive stockings to guide your guests to their seats? This project by Jemima Schlee also features our December issue!
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.

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!
