Mini Christmas Stockings

These cute christmas stockings are super easy to make, even if you're not an experienced sewer. A great fat quarter project
They can be used as a garland, as Polkadot Chair has done here
If you're feeling daring, and have plenty of fabric, these stocking make excellent DIY advent calenders
Or make a special pooch feel festive with their own doggy stocking, which is what I did.
If you're REALLY spoiling pooch, why not fill it with delicious homemade dog treats such as these by Wild Wild Whisk. Doggy delicious!
Laminated Photo Snow Globe Ornaments

How cute are these snow globe ornaments! I can't think of a better way to commemorate little one's christmases than with a yearly ornament
Family can treasure and enjoy these year after year- much better than a boring old christmas card!
Michelle at Crafty Morning has printable instructions and a video tutorial to follow along with on her website, along with plenty of other kids and holiday craft ideas, and tasty food recipes too

Christmas wouldn't be christmas for me as a kid without making paper snowflakes! Actually I still make them-there's something so exciting about unfolding the paper to reveal your design. It never gets old
Button Star Christmas Ornament

These Button Ornaments definitely caught my eye as the perfect way to use the ever growing collection of odd and miss matched buttons that, like most crafters, I have (I'm sure they multiply on their own!)
As a former teacher, Chelsey's blog is chock full of activities and crafts to inspire creativity and self-confidence in children while promoting learning and fun.
With plenty of STEAM (STEM+Art) activities, free printables and more there's lots worth checking out, especially her Snow Dough recipe
Popsicle Stick Christmas Trees
The site also has a huge selection of colouring in pages to print off, as well as a section specifically for toddler crafts

I love a bit of upcycling and if you're anything like me you've got lots of boxes from online deliveries-perfect for making these little houses
Pillar Box Blue is the top upcycling blog in the UK-definitely worth checking out Claire's site for plenty for upcycling crafts
Christmas Tree Corner Bookmarks
from Easy Peasy and Fun

Another project from Easy Peasy and Fun, but I'm a total bookworm so just couldn't resist adding this bookmark project
How special to use when reading your kids favourite Christmas stories
Plastic Free Christmas Crackers

A great name for a great blog!
And another fabulous upcycling project. Afterall, who needs the rubbish toys that you get in shop bought crackers that never get used again!
from Handmade Charlotte
This is two activities in one. Get outside and enjoy the benefits of a walk in nature, get the kids collecting some pine cones, and then come home and make them into these cute ornaments, which can be reused year after year
Another of Charlotte's awesome projects is her Felt Advent Bauble Pouches
There are SO many amazing craft projects and blogs out there- it was really hard to narrow it down to just 10! Hopefully you enjoy the selection of projects, and you find the blogs useful all year round
I wanted to be sure to include upcycling projects, as we all work to reduce of use of single use plastics
Please please please share pics of your finished crafts here, or on social media @kate_frances_designs
I'd LOVE to see your finished crafts
Stay safe and enjoy a Creative Christmas!
