Great for children to grannies to make Christmas decorations to last for years. All these projects can be made at minimum cost as like me many will have a crafts box full of bits and bobs just waiting for this book to inspire you.
This bright and approachable selection of Christmas crafts evokes old-timey warmth updated with contemporary sensibilities. Introductory notes discuss tools, reusing supplies, reducing purchased items, using biodegradable adhesives, and foraging for natural craft elements like pinecones; after which the crafts unfold with simplicity and a reliance on neutral tones. Especially useful to craft groups in libraries are several ideas that reuse book pages, and many smaller decorations like hanging ornaments or ribbon-wrapped candles that can be made from remnants left over from past craft activities. Some projects, like Advent calendars and wreaths, will be more time- and supply-intensive and may require more purchased materials if the crafter desires a unified look. But on the whole, projects like tiny gift boxes made from last year's holiday cards, folded book trees, and fragrant dried oranges offer low-cost, low-waste, joyful crafting options for new or experienced crafters.-- Heather Booth * Booklist *
