    I love Christmas crafting. I also think a handmade gift is far more thoughtful than a shop-bought one, by far!

    Thise wood slice Santas remind me of my childhood. I used to make them with my grandparents. I also really like those Coke bottles, very fitting!

    So many fantastic ideas, thank you so much for sharing! I always try to do lots of Christmas themes crafts with the kids in the run up to Christmas and then they have them all on display in their bedrooms so I will definitely try some of these! Especially love the look of those coke bottle santas they are awesome!
