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.
A popular idea is to tie ribbons in bows around the living room on door handles, around candles, curtain holders. Placing flowers, artificial or natural around the house will bring fresh and vibrancy into your home. Festive flowers such as mistletoe, Christmas flowers and ivy are suggestions for decorations. Hang stocking around the fireplace for a more traditional living room look. Glass bowls are great for filling with water for floating candle decorations, petals, or leaves. You could even fill your bowls with crisp pine cones, sprayed silver snow or gold for effect, as well as glass balls or marbles. The more innovative your ideas are you create the greater satisfaction it will bring when guests comment on how original and festively warm your home feels.
Christmas is a special time of year. We are more generous, more forgiving and more inclined to focus on our loved ones. We tend to entertain more, to spend more time together and to enjoy that time a little more. Perhaps it is the weather that makes us turn our thoughts inward, or perhaps it is just the season, but we seem to spend a bit more quality time with the people we care about.
