Time to be creative
All crafting tips
Do you have the honour of contributing something to the festive family meal at Christmas? The countdown to Christmas has begun! And we find ourselves in more of a decorating and baking fever than usual. Moni and Sara from Feines Handwerk show you how you can really show off at a Christmas afternoon coffee gathering. This time, it involves a Christmas cake topper with deer and a moss arch on your Christmas cake with fondant.
Are you looking for new winter decorations for your home? Yes? Then get cracking right now! "Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, snow is glistening." Every year, children sing this song when the first snow falls. Claudia from Ideas & Inspirations has given it a lot of thought! The result is a great idea for a DIY winter forest in a box.
Father Christmas meets Christmas baubles: the ultimate Christmas decoration! What happens when Rudolph the Reindeer, a snowy fir tree and Father Christmas with a sleigh full of presents "land" on a little Christmas bauble? The result is clearly an ace Christmas decoration for the dinner table or a great home decoration for the Advent season! Vivien from Crafts mit Herz shows you how to design the baubles in this crafting guide.
Craft yourself a great door wreath! Decorating, such as the wreath on your door, is part of the Advent season. That’s why we’ve put together a crafting tip that combines both: an Advent door wreath. Sophia from maybeyoulike has got the bug for this pre-Christmas crafting passion. She reveals how she made this great door wreath using Decorative Moss, Figures and little Snowy Fir Trees.
Make your own Advent calendar! A personalised Advent calendar for children and adults is simply part of the Advent season! The 24 little gifts shorten the waiting time until Christmas and sometimes personalised, homemade Advent calendars even replace Christmas presents for many people. Liska from dekotopia.net shows you how to craft a great Advent calendar out of small boxes and create a miniature winter landscape. Have fun opening the doors or rather boxes. :)
Every year the question arises: how do you design your Advent wreath? It should be something special, preferably quick and easy to make, and somehow also not the standard pine branch kind. Here, Liska from dekotopia.net presents her latest Advent wreath: modern, cheerful and truly snazzy! Advent in a winter wonderland with mini Deer and Decorative Snowy Fir Trees. Have fun crafting!
We all took immense delight in lighting candles when we were children. Especially when the candles were on the Advent wreath! Because with every candle that is lit, Christmas draws a little closer, and with it the day when Baby Jesus comes. Steffi and Moni have another super idea to make your Advent wreath quite different this year. Watch the video. We tell you what you need for crafting and how to do it here. Have fun and have a lovely Advent!
