Christmas clothes peg bookmark

IMG_4111Today, Ted has been in the mood to make all things Christmas – pretty much all day, so there are going to be a host of Christmas posts coming up soon. He has wanted to make some secret presents for his Dad, and this is one of the first – we made these Christmas clothes peg book marks together as they are pretty tricky for little fingers. Ted is trying to keep them a surprise until the big day itself. Continue reading

Well, it might be weeks until Christmas, but in our house, we have already been thinking lots about it  – Christine and I are running some Christmas Craft workshops over the next few weeks, which we are very very excited about.

I made this little clothes peg reindeer yesterday, and Ted loved it so much he thought I must include it in the workshop next week. Here is how to make your own. Continue reading

Here are Ted’s super cute cothespeg snowmen. We have been wanting to make some clothes peg snowmen for ages, and just before Christmas we finally got round to making them. They were simple and great fun to make, and we have been using them as book marks and paper clips. They look really sweet and all have their own personality and character. Ted was thrilled with them, wrapped them with woolly scarves and gave them each winter hats.  Continue reading

I found lots of totally inspiring Christmas clothes peg crafts, and here is a round up of our favourites. There is something for everyone, we hope you find something that inspires you if you fancy making something in the run up to Christmas. Continue reading

Here is my home-made advent calender for Ted, which I have been secretly making for him over the past week. I can’t wait to show it to him, and have put it up along our stairs ready for him to find when he returns home from school. I really wanted Ted to have an advent calender made especially for him, and for each day to provide something fun to do or make as we count the days in Advent towards Christmas. Continue reading
