Crafting for Christmas

Crafting for Christmas

The run up to Christmas means crafting time. This year’s craft class focused on book craft and wreath making with buttons and corks. Upcycling at its best!

The group had a great time creating fabulous decorations. The books were turned into Christmas tree scenes and the corks into wreaths and smaller hanging Christmas trees. Buttons were used on the wreaths and there was even an ambitions champagne cork garland!
