Christmas Craft Ideas

I can't believe how quickly the year has gone - The latest edition of Handmde arrived this week - quick Christmas Crafts edition. Where does the time go! Thomas and I had fun today making Christmas snowflakes to decorate the house for Christmas.

It got me thinking about other fun things to do with him as I love doing craft with him. Post your favourites as a comment!
I designed a Christmas Table runner inspired by one of the projects sheets from Hot Ribbon. I love this stuff. You can just iron it on! The central design is made using double sided fusible web and the hot ribbon (no sewing). I was making this while demonstrating the hot ribbon at the Darling Harbour Show in Sydney.
Thomas (2) and I also made this Merry Christmas Banner from felt. He loves his alphabet and so we had a lot of fun sticking this together. My nephew Callum made the pinecones below. I was sooo disappointed that they were not correctly attributed in the magazine.

I wish I knew how to make those pinecones. I just fell in love with them! Since I decorate without Santa (we have our own Sinterklaas) I like to decorate with nature things...

I love the Merry Christmas Banner. I was looking for some cool Christmas craft ideas for my 32-month old Yra to make this Christmas and I'm happy I found your blog.
