Eight cheap Christmas craft ideas - from wild foragers to creative kids' kit purchases


Eight cheap Christmas craft ideas – from wild foragers to creative kids’ kit purchases

Plus, I have tons of other tips for saving money on creative kits and art supplies.

GO FOR THE FORUM: Green plants such as holly and ivy are great for making wreaths to hang over coats or to create attractive accents for the dining table.

LET US SPRAY: The branches are spray-painted silver, gold or white and look stunning as if they were dressed in fairy lights. Get more nature-based decor inspiration from TikTok, YouTube, and Pinterest.

ZEST DRESS: Dried orange slices are a colorful addition to your wreath. Slice the fruit into thin rounds and place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Cook for 45 minutes at 140C and let cool.

FAVORITE: Make an Elizabethan flower ball, or scented ball, by piercing an orange peel with a toothpick and pressing it into neat rows of cloves.
