Festive Crafts for Thrifty Ladies

There’s no denying that here at Nica we love all things crafty and we also love Christmas time, so obviously when the festive season comes around, we have to combine the two things.

It’s a great way to save money and have fun in the process by making your own Christmas wrapping paper, cards and décor. Pinterest has lots of Christmas crafts to make, be it DIY Christmas decorations or DIY Christmas gifts, take a look at a few of our favourite finds that we can’t wait to try out.

Christmas Snowflakes

One of the best things about finding crafts on Pinterest is that you can often stumble across a set of visual step by step instructions too and that’s exactly what we found for this fun snowflake here. All’s you need is a couple of sheets of paper depending upon how big you’d like your end star to be, a pair of scissors, and a stapler. It’s easy peasy to make and simple to hang from your ceiling to freshen up your festive décor. 

Tree Decorations

Making a few of your own decorations always infuses your tree with more of a personal touch. Who doesn't remember making these kinds of crafts at school? It’s a great way to keep children entertained, and it’s also really nice to keep something that they've made for Christmases to come. 

We've opted for this very simple Rudolph the reindeer decoration. Simply dry out a cone and glue on a pair of googly eyes, a red bell nose, a pair of felt ears, twig antlers and a cotton loop to make hanging it extra easy. 

Origami Labels  

For the dedicated crafters amongst us, why not turn your hand to a spot of origami? It’s an art that we’re really inspired by, and it’s even influenced the cat hardware upon of new Venice crossbody. We found this cute little Santa idea on Pinterest here that’d add a really kitsch touch to the gift tags on your presents.
