Christmas is a hectic time of year to say the least; Christmas seems to come earlier and earlier each year as decorations, advertising on TV and shops seem to fill their stores before we even feel autumn pass. It easy to feel under pressure in the festive season and whilst it s good to get in the festive spirit you dont want to create unnecessary pressure on yourself. If youre on a budget, as most of us tend to be, its a great opportunity to expose your creative side and enjoy putting up the Christmas decorations that need not be a chore.
-Do you buy just one piece in a set, or everything that matches? This would depend, I suppose, on whether or not you have the money or the credit to buy an entire bedroom or living room set, and if you are able to move out old furniture in a timely manner. As with other stores, furniture shops are likely to offer good deals on sets, so you may be able to afford to buy everything at once. Dont stop at the first place you find, however. Take your time and browse all your options, especially if youre looking for something specific like a style or wood grain.
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.
