This book contains everything you need to get into the holiday spirit. Decorate your gifts in style, dress up for the occasion and deck your home with hand-crafted decorations. This book is sure to provide hours of festive fun. Christmas Crafts presents a fresh approach to seasonal activities by incorporating papercraft, painting, textiles and jewelry-making. All projects use readily-available materials and are carefully chosen to appeal to girls and boys alike. Readers of all abilities can get stuck in as each project is graded with a difficulty rating of 1 to 5. A special 'techniques and materials' section describes everything you need to get crafting, with handy hints on where to shop and how to recycle old material. This section also provides further information and tips on the techniques covered in the book. Also includes 10 reusable templates attached in a handy pocket at the back of the book.
