If you do have children, one of the more popular Christmas craft ideas is the candy calendar. This is an alternative to the traditional Advent calendar. This is very simple to make. You need 24 pieces of wrapped candy, a wide red ribbon, some trimming lace and some thin tartan ribbon to hold the sweets in place. Edge the wide ribbon with the white lace and add a large tartan and gold bow to the top. Attach the sweets individually using the thin tartan ribbon to hold each sweet in place. The idea is that starting on 1 December the children can eat one piece of candy every day until Christmas Eve. This is bound to go down the trees in any family with young children.
You find a wide variety of items that will fit any budget. Of course, you dont want to spend so much on decorations that you dont have any funds left for gifts! But, some decorations do actually make great gifts, especially host and hostess gifts. A small trinket or Christmas tree ornament is the perfect way to say thank you to your hosts. A Christmas plate or mug can also make a great gift, while adding to their home décor at the same time.
The Christmas tree can also be decorated using Christmas craft ideas. If you handy with the sewing machine, you could make heart and bell shaped cushions to decorate the leaves of the tree. You can make life easier by buying some patterns for tree decorations at your local craft shop.
