Be inspired to turn your hand to something crafty this Christmas – just like the staff in the Search Press office! We have been busy getting in the festive spirit, and recreating a selection of seasonal projects from our books, as well as holding a fantastic Crafternoon session to raise money for the charity Mind.

We have been posting our creations on our social media channels daily in a special advent countdown to Christmas, so check out our FacebookInstagramTwitter or Pinterest pages for all the newest photos! Go ahead and check out today's make; but if you want to catch up, here are our creations to date – we hope you will feel inspired and motivated to have a go yourself!

From Mini Felt Christmas by Sachiyo Ishii, which includes 30 decorations to sew for the festive period, comes our first Christmas project – this amazing Holly Wreath, by our Head of Marketing, Lin. It would look perfect hanging on your door!

Chloe's Robin Bunting Chloe's Snowman Bunting

Louise's Reindeer

This lovely red-nosed reindeer, from Val Pierce's 20 to Make: Mini Christmas Crochet is sure to guide the sleigh this Christmas – you’ll be hooked on making your own version, just like Louise in our production department was!

Monica's Painting

Monica in our marketing department was inspired to put paintbrush to paper and recreate the snowy street scene from Terry Harrison’s Painting Watercolour Snow Scenes the Easy Way. Why not use the tips and techniques in the book to create a range of lovely personalised Christmas cards for family and friends?

You can find out more information about the charity on their website here.

Sophie's Igloo Cake

Lin's Ornaments

More cute decorations have been sewn by Lin – these colourful felt creations were taken from Sew Your Own Felt Advent Calendar by Sachiyo Ishii, and were adapted to become tree decorations. This is a great way to add a unique touch to your own Christmas tree.

Em's Tunisian Crochet Scarf

Wrap up warm this winter in a Tunisian crochet scarf – just like this one that Em has made! This project is taken from Beginner's Guide to Tunisian Crochet by Emma Guess, and would make an extra special gift for someone this Christmas.

There’s nothing like a handmade present or personalised decorations to add that special touch to the Christmas celebrations, so if you are feeling inspired by all of our Christmassy makes, then why not have a go at some of the projects that we have shared? We’d love to see your projects, so remember to tag us on our social media channels! Don’t forget – follow us online to see the rest of our creations over the festive period!
