Christmas Table Top Tree!

What you will need to make your little Christmas table top tree:

  • Scissors
  • Sirdar Happy Cotton in whatever colours you want, we used shade 780 
  • Toilet roll
  • Decoration - we used little stars and glitter felt
  • Double sided sellotape

Step 1

Cut your toilet roll lengthways so you can unravel it and make it flat

Step 2

With one of the ends on the inside of the toilet roll put a piece of double-sided tape down the edge don’t take the backing off just yet. 

Step 3

At the other end starting at the corner, start rolling it towards the middle so you end up with a cone shape. Just before getting to the end remove the double-sided tape and stick. 

Step 4

Then trim the bottom of the cone so that it can stand up.

Step 5

Cover the whole cone with double sided tape as this is what your yarn is going to stick to. Make sure you cover all the edges around the bottom and top.

 Step 6

Start wrapping the yarn around the cone don’t worry about being too tidy as it gives it a rustic charm.

 

Step 7

After covering the whole of the cone with the yarn making sure there is not tape or cardboard showing. cut the thread and push in the hole at the top.

Step 8

Now it is time to decorate your mini tree! We used star sequins and gold felt but you can used whatever you like!

It would be lovely to see your creations please tag them to our Facebook post!

Mini hats and Gonks!

Todays make...Christmas decorations!

After popular demand we have another Christmas Craft idea...

Mini bobble hat!

You will need:

  • Yarns in different colours
  • Loo roll tube
  • Piece of cardboard around 17cm long
  • Scissors

Step one

Cut 2cm off the loo roll tube and put to one side 

Step two

With your piece of cardboard, wrap your yarn around a few times. Then after you have quite a bit on there, cut the yarn at one end of the cardboard so that you have long strips.

 

Step three

Going back to your 2cm piece of loo roll tube, get your strips of yarn, fold in half. Putting one end up through the loo roll and then with the loop end thread the loose bits through to make a slip knot. So then this is attached to the tube.  Do this all the way around the edge of the tube until you cannot see any of the cardboard.

Step four

Then push all the of the pieces of yarn through the middle so you get a defined rim on the hat.

Step five

With one piece of thread, tie around the loose ends to make the top of the bobble hat.

 

 
 

Step six 

Neaten the edges and cut the ends to the desired length to make the bobble.

Ta da! You have made a bobble hat that can be used as a tree decoration or even a garland.

 
 

Mini Gonks!

You can even make your bobble hats in mini gonks by adding white yarn and a button!

Follow the steps as above, then…

  • Wrap the white yarn around your hand until you have a good amount.
  • Slide it off your hand carefully so you still have it in loops. Cut one end
  • Tie a knot in the looped side and then push inside of the hat, you can either sew or glue the button on for his nose. 

 

We hope you have fun making your Bobble hats and Gonks and look forward to seeing you soon!

How about making a Christmas scraps garland, it's quick and easy to do!

You will need:

  • Ribbon
  • Scraps lengths of fabric
  • Pinking shears scissors

Step one

With either your left-over fabric or fat quarters cut them into lengths of roughly 18cm long by 2cm wide, you don’t have to be too precise with this.
