Gingerbread Cookie Decorations


If you love making cookies how about these delicious Gingerbread cookies which become even more fragrant when left for a few days.

Mixed with ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice and cocoa.

They can be kept for 2 weeks or of course just used as Christmas decorations.

Yarn wrapped Tree Ornament


If you have left over yarn from projects how about giving this idea a go all you really need is:

Cardboard (anything from packaging would be fine too – Amazon for instance)

Yarn bits

Hot glue gun


Start by gluing the end of a piece of yarn to your cut out star ( there are loads of templates freely available online).

Add glue to the points of the star to secure the yarn there and just wrap up the star till its covered and nice and thick.



Yarn Wreath Ornaments


This is another one for using up left over yarn.

All you need it some Styrofoam wreaths.



Styrofoam Wreaths

Wooden rings

Yarn if christmassy colours to wrap round the Styrofoam

Some little decorations to hang from the Styrofoam yarn rings. Up-cycle old decorations.

If you didn’t want to use Styrofoam you could go with the wooden rings see the tutorial on Christmas tree forest and decorate them using some of the ideas above too.


3D Paper Snowflakes


This is a gorgeous snowflake which if you have a Cricut machine will be super easy to make.

You can also use the PDF to cut it out as well so give it a try with some gorgeous silver snowy paper or even white glitter paper.


If this is all too much for you and you would rather just buy something then Target has some wonderful options.
