Christmas is Coming

Hello Everyone. Nice of you to call in at Jumbled Crafts and thank you for the comments you leave which are always appreciated.

This time at Try it on Tuesday the challenge title is Christmas is Coming so you can make anything that this suggest to you. Thank you to all who joined in the homemade/handmade challenge and all the wonderful ideas that you had for that challenge.

Pop along to TIOT  for inspiration from the rest of the team and also visit their blogs to find out more about what they have made for this challenge.


My thoughts went in the direction of something to hang on the Christmas tree


I covered some polystyrene balls in glue and glitter then knitted them some little hats. The faces are made up of pins with beads on the end and I have used those to fasten the trimmings onto the hats as well. Also a bigger pin is holding the hat top down and the wool that holds the hook for the tree. The tree isn't up yet so I hung them on the Christmas Cactus.

I am also entering this at Craft-Room Challenge where you are asked to make Christmas Decorations/no cards

Just thought I would add these as well as it could be a little gift for a gardener.


Buy a set of gardening gloves--these have the rubber on the palm and fingers.

Add some felt flowers or buttons etc to give them a smarter look. Maybe a felt plant pot or vegetable image for a man.


Can't wait to see what you make so do join in with us.

Love Chrissie x
