1. Make or collect 24 drawstring bags of varying sizes. Cut out the numbers 1 to 24 in brightly coloured felt – alternate your chosen colours. Stitch a number to the front of each bag.

2. Wrap up a little something for each ‘day’ – a decoration for the tree, some spring bulbs to plant in the garden; or a healthy treat perhaps – and put them inside the bags.

3. Use pegs to pin the bags along a length of string or ribbon and hang in a convenient spot in the living room.

1. Draw a christmassy shape onto a piece of card and cut it out.

2. Using a selection of glitter colours, put each shade into a shallow bowl.

3. Cover one side of a snowflake in glue and press into the glitter. Repeat on the second side.

4. Punch a hole in the top of the decoration when dry, then thread pretty ribbon through and hang them on the tree.

1. Cut out two snowman shapes – complete with hat – from a piece of white felt. Stitch the shapes together with blanket stitch, leaving the top open for stuffing.

2. Stuff with fabric scraps and sew up. Cut out a hat shape in red felt and stitch it on over the white hat shape on the snowman’s head. Add felt stripes to his hat and sew or stick on a face, buttons, scarf and pompom.

 
a little note from me: i do not own the pictures, i was searching online for some christmassy craft ideas to post on here and found these pictures 🙂
