It is Always Christmas Crafting Time

Get started with Christmas crafting early this year to ensure your home is transformed into a holiday wonderland on time this year.

The stores may have just started thinking about Halloween but crafters know it is time to start thinking about Christmas. The Better Homes and Gardens “Best of Christmas Ideas” book is bound to have the inspiration you need to start making cards, ornaments and decorations before it is too late. The Better Homes and Gardens book captures the elegance of the holidays with a range of project suggestions combining the traditional with modern. Inside this book you can find craft ideas to decorate every corner of your home and office as well as practical ideas for wrapping gifts and homemade gifts ideas which can save you money and show the recipient they are worth the extra effort of something homemade.

My favorite chapters in particular are “Fresh, Fast and Fabulous” which brings indoors the beautiful parts of winter nature such as berries and greenery, while leaving the blustery cold outdoors. The ideas in this chapter are quick to make with great results that are sure to impress your house guests. Additionally, the “3 Seasonal Settings” chapter is filled with ideas on how to create a Christmas dinner table which no one will forget.

Many of these crafts are kid friendly and with simple steps and easy-to-find construction materials these projects are fun for the whole family. These are even some lip-licking good recipes to enjoy after a long day of decking the halls. Don’t put off holiday crafting for after Thanksgiving, with a little head start you will be much more likely to produce the kind of crafts you will enjoy for years to come.
