In this blog post, we've put together a range of crafting tips that are perfect for the run-up to Christmas. For example, make gifts for friends and family, or do something for yourself! The instructions are really easy, so you can do them together with your children without any worries.

CHRISTMAS WREATH

This great idea will help you use old things wisely and have fun with family and friends! I'm sure many homes have lots of old decorative balls and useless metal hangers (if you don't have hangers, regular iron wire is also great for this task). We recommend giving these things new life and making your Christmas decor beautiful by your own hands!

You need:

- about 30-40 different Christmas tree ornaments

-a metal handle or iron wire

1. Shape the metal handle into a circle

2. Open the hanger and thread the decorative balls through the metal wire as you wish.

3. When all the balls are in place, you can also add a Christmas ribbon around them. Close the hanger by wrapping the metal wire back around one end.

4. Gorgeous Christmas wreath is ready and you can hang it with the hook!

FLOATING CANDLES

A very simple decoration for the Christmas table or a dinner party with friends! Create unique candle that bring a magical atmosphere into your home. Idea is particularly suitable for those who like to use objects around them creatively. Candle arrangements like this will add variety to your decor and are sure to surprise and delight your guests!

Make an atmospheric candle jar! Making a jar is an easy and creative activity that both kids and adults will love! Use your imagination and create your own landscape. The candle will create an atmosphere in your home as well as a unique memento of Christmas.
