The nights are getting darker, and the weather is getting colder, meaning the festive season is here. And there is nothing more heart-warming than adding a special touch to your seasonal decor with personalisation. As an added bonus, making your own decorations can help save you money when we need it most too.
We’ve put together some Christmas decorating ideas to make for your home and even included the links to make the projects in Design Space so you can go right ahead and make it now or save the project for later with a bookmark. (Discover how to save and retrieve projects in Design Space here.)
Create personalised baubles with special memories attached to them. Whether they remind you of your wedding, your children, your pets, or a holiday you went on, these baubles help bring a smile to your face every year they are bought out again to decorate your tree with.

A tree needs something with the wow-factor to finish off the look. We used basswood to create our own topper – a crescent moon.
