For my short-but-hopefully-sweet penultimate post of 2012, I bring you a two festive projects – just in case you have any spare 'making' time over the pre-holiday weekend...
First up, a leafy hanging wreath adorned with an octet of colourful elves...
|Which one is Will Ferrell?|
To find out what you'll need to make this charming decoration, and how to go about it, click here.
Secondly, a '70s nativity scene featuring all the usual characters and creatures, gathered in the stable...
|Mary and Joseph look over the moon|
The grid's quite nice to look at:
|Love the three kings|
And the full instructions are here.
Both these festive furbelows are taken from my trusty St Michael Book of Handicrafts (Sundial Books, 1975). I hope you enjoy making them.
Happy holidays to Glad You Could Make It readers around the world!
