My favourite time of the year is almost here…Christmas!!!!
I haven’t thought about Christmas shopping for presents yet but I have done all my Christmas craft shopping! I got it all from Hobbycraft which has an amazing selection of Christmas items that just seeing put me in the Christmas spirit!
Everything I bought I’ll be making over the next month and of course blogging a step by step guide of how to make each item.
Here’s what I got:
Make a Traditional Wreath Bundle
I never buy a Christmas Wreath let alone make one but I wanted to get this because I love how traditional they are. The set I went for includes an artificial wreath along with decorations to add. My favourite decoration has to be the red berry Christmas garland. The tone of the red really pops and I can’t wait to get making this so I can hang it proudly on my door.
Here’s everything you get in this set:
Artificial Christmas Wreath – 45cm
Red Berry Christmas Garland – 1.5m
Natural Cinnamon Sticks – 20cm
Red Large Gift Bow – 53cm
Oasis Green Hobby Wire
The Make a Traditional Wreath Bundle is a bargain at £12.
Make Your Own Stocking Bundle
The next set is to make your very own Christmas stocking. I’ve only bought one but I may be tempted to buy more so I can make one for everyone in my family. It’s quite a basic set containing a linen stocking, some felt and glitter. This means you really have to let your imagination run wild and come up with your own creative ideas to make it look good.
Here’s everything in the bundle:
Linen Christmas Stocking – 48cm
Red, white and green A4 Felt Sheets
Hobbycraft Tacky Glue – 60ml
Silver Glitter Glue – 60ml
The Make Your Own Christmas Stocking Bundle costs £3
Wooden Advent Calendar Tree Traditional Bundle
This is a wooden tree calendar complete with 24 draws for you to put treats in. The tree is large and well made and I’m really excited to get decorating it! I love how once finished it will be an item that I will bring out year after year.
In the bundle you get:
Wooden Advent Calendar Christmas Tree (19.7 x 17.7 x 2.75 Inches.)
Christmas Multi Type Deco Mache Paper 3 Pack
Mod Podge Gloss – 236ml
DecoArt Americana Cotton Ball Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint

Make Your Own Santa and Reindeer Christmas Crackers Kit
There is no need to decorate these make your own crackers, just assemble them – I’m sure they’ll be pretty quick to make. I love the reindeer and Father Christmas designs and I’m already thinking about what little treats I can hide inside!
The kit contains:
Six Flat Crackers (including snaps)
Multi Coloured Hats
Jokes, Trivia Questions and Charades
90 Piece Paperchain Set
Last but not least in my huge Hobbycraft haul is this paperchain set. It includes 90 strips of paper with Christmas lights and Father Christmas/penguin design. The great thing about these kits is the pack also comes with sheets of double-sided tape to make it really easy to stick it together.
The Paper Chains Pack costs only £2!
I hope you enjoyed reading my huge Christmas Craft Haul all from Hobbycraft. If you are thinking of getting anything I would do so very soon because from checking the website some items are already starting to go out of stock!
