Getting Crafty – Christmas Gifts

I love Christmas! I love giving gifts and seeing the joy on my family and friends faces when they receive something that I picked out especially for them! However, there is NOTHING that compares to the feeling that I get when the gift that I have given them and that they LOVE so much is something that I made especially for them! (more…)

How to make a Christmas Garland and Card Display

Christmas Garland and Card Display by #EclecticHandmadeCreations

Last week was all about Christmas Cards. They are a great way of creating something unique and special for someone that you care about. They don’t take much time, they aren’t expensive to make, and they can look so amazing. I love that Christmas time is an excuse to go old school and post letters and cards. It is so exciting to receive cards in the mail, or really anything other than bills! But what do you do with all those amazing cards, how do you showcase the works of art that your family and friends have made or picked out especially for you? They create such a Christmasy feel and provide beautiful decoration. However, they can be quite difficult to display; the slightest of breezes blows them over, they may not even like to stand on their own, hanging them over the traditional piece of string only helps protect them from a slight breeze, anything stronger and the whole lot come floating down. Today I am going to show you a beautiful way of displaying all your Christmas cards; A Christmas Garland and Card Display. It displays all your Christmas cards and it even looks great without cards so it doesn’t matter if you don’t receive any physical cards, perhaps your family and friends have so completely embraced the digital age and don’t get excited about mail as I do :-).

How to make an Easy Christmas Wreath

Christmas Wreath by Eclectic Handmade Creations

“Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favourite time of the year…”

The stores have had Christmas decorations out for months and the Christmas carols have been playing in the malls for weeks. It is all pointing to the tell tale sign that Christmas is just a few short weeks away! To be honest with you I couldn’t be happier, I LOVE Christmas!!! I just love spending time with family, feasting on all the yummy food and giving gifts to my loved ones. I love giving gifts to loved ones so much so, that I am usually already finished by the end of October and there is nothing left for me to do for weeks; fyi that is a bad thing, I like preparing for Christmas. Although, I do have a rule that in our house decorations don’t go up until the 1st of December. It is SO hard to wait until then, I am such a child. This year however, I broke that rule. I know, how naughty of me. Tisk, tisk, tisk! But, it was for a great reason! For the past few years, I have wanted to make a Christmas wreath. This year I finally got around to making one, thanks to you; well, I needed something for you to read. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I literally stood at the door for at least a full 5 mins looking at it, just marvelling at how well it turned out! There was just no way that this masterpiece wasn’t going up as soon as it was finished!
