Homemade Christmas decorations and presents

Christmas is the perfect time of year to get creative with your decorating and present giving!

So this year, instead of buying your Dad the same old socks, or your nephew the classic 500 piece puzzle, why not have a go at making these festive paper creations? Spending a little time to create homemade presents for your for your friends and family can give a little extra to their Christmas this year.

We’ve even taken the ‘Hassle.com’ out of finding cute Christmas templates to use!

Hand drawn Christmas recipe greetings cards

What is one of the best things about Christmas? Eating! Especially when you haven’t had to make it! This year, send a greetings card with a little difference, a Merry Christmas and a recipe. Why not suggest you’d be willing to help them bake/eat the gingerbread muffins.

You can find this creative card here –  CookRepublic.

Christmas tree decorations

You maybe a last minute tree putter-upper, but that shouldn’t stop you from making these awesome tree decorations! And with the weather so cold and dark at the moment, it’s the perfect excuse to get creative over a glass of mulled win.

Get inspired by these templates from MiniEco (we will definitely be using these for our Hassle.com Christmas tree).

Geometric snowman template

We absolutely love a white Christmas! From building snowmen, having a snowball fight and making snow angel. The only downside is that our awesome snowmen never last, so this year we’re creating our own indoor snowmen (all that snowy feeling just without the frozen hands!).

Snowmen can be found at – MiniEco
