Use Christmas craft ideas to make your living room looks sensational this year. Usually the living room is where the Christmas tree is placed and so it’s important that the decorations are done properly. Some people like to decorate the tree using lots of different styles of decorations while others prefer to use one or two colors. If you like the old-fashioned look you can find candle shaped lights for the tree. Modern LED lights are going to look out of place if you intend using hand made decorations.
When decorating this room don’t forget the Christmas stockings. People believe that it is only families with children who should hang stockings. But as you probably know most adults become a little bit childish at this time a year and would love to have their own stocking hanging at the fire side. Stockings are easy to make. You can buy wonderful stocking kits that can be passed on from one generation to the next. In fact some families will make new stockings every year to add to their collection.
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.
The Christmas tree can also be decorated using Christmas craft ideas. If you’re handy with the sewing machine, you could make heart and bell shaped cushions to decorate the leaves of the tree. You can make life easier by buying some patterns for tree decorations at your local craft shop.
