13 DIY Christmas decoration kits for a craft-filled Crimbo

Lockdown 1.0 saw a crafting revival: long days spent at home made the idea of picking up a new hobby, whether that was knitting, crocheting, painting or macrame-ing, a whole lot more appealing.

And now the second time around, it’s time to revisit those knitting needles and paintbrushes once more – and with Christmas on the horizon, what better use of your time than to get crafting some festive decorations?

You don’t have to go it alone either, as there are plenty of DIY Christmas decoration kits out there that come with all the necessary materials and instructions to help you create some stunning decs that you can keep forever (and will mean so much more than another high street-bought decoration).

Try your hand at your very own DIY wreath, or how about a garland of sweet mini knitted stockings for the fireplace? If your tree’s looking a little lacklustre, we’ve found kits that will help you knit, stitch, felt, macrame and crochet your own handmade tree decorations and baubles.
