Two Christmas Crafts

This DIY guide shows you how to make not only one, but two great homemade Christmas presents. Starting with festive tea bags and moving to an embroidered ornament. They would both make a great secret Santa gift together or separately as stocking fillers. What’s great is, they won’t make a dent in your bank balance.

Hot Cocoa Stirrers

Fun to make, delicious and well received, these hot cocoa stirrers will go down a treat at Christmas. Cheap to make, they are a great way to add a bit of luxury to your cocoa. Leaving marshmallows floating in the cup, and a sweet peppermint taste (or whatever flavor you decide) your cocoa just got upgraded.
