I was very kindly sent a review copy of this book which contains 35 Christmas craft projects. It is a beautiful hard-back book with 128 pages of appealing photos, tutorials and ideas. The book is split into 5 chapters:
- Table Settings
- Cards, Giftwrap and Labels
- Edible Gifts
- Crafts for Children
All of the tutorials are detailed and easy to follow and each one includes a selection of images to help you create the finished product. It includes ideas for more traditional crafts such as making paper snowflakes and felt decorations, as well as some modern, fresh ideas such as chandelier drop decorations. There are instructions for three different types of wreaths which I am definitely going to attempt. It will be great to have some decent tutorials to follow as my attempts following online instructions have turned out pretty awful to say the least!
The children have already made some of the glittery Christmas tree cards and we are going to have fun trying out the snow-globe craft in the future. I would have liked for the book to include a few more ideas using up-cycled materials but unfortunately most of the ideas involve purchasing quite a few supplies.
I would recommend this book if you prefer to have hand-crafted Christmas decorations and like me, you go all out to decorate during the festive season. it would also make a lovely gift for a crafty person.
