12 Days of Christmas DIY Challenges

Can you believe there's only 53 days till Christmas! With this in mind, Jill, from Creating My Way to Success, has co-ordinated a small group of bloggers to bring you 12 Days of DIY Christmas Challenges.

For 12 days starting today we will set a challenge a day to create something for Christmas using just the resources you have on hand. The idea is to show that Christmas Shouldn't Cost the Earth.

If you're reading this, chances are you love to craft, but why not craft with the resources we have on hand - let's get creative!

Each day a challenge will be set by means of a video and blog posts giving some suggested ideas and crafts. These posts will also contain a linky party for anyone and everyone who wants to join in to link up their projects - both past and present, that answer the challenge.

The linky party can be found on all our blogs and we'll try and come up with different ideas and tutorials for the challenges too. So please do visit us all, and then share your ideas with us as well! We're looking forward to seeing how these challenge are met!

Ready, Steady....Let's Christmas Craft!

  1. What a fun challenge idea. I don't have anything made from clothing, but I'll keep up with the posts to see if there is any other challenge where I can participate.

  2. What a great challenge Pam, looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with

  3. That is such a cool idea! I have so many pairs of jeans to make jeans ornaments. I wanted to show you these pinecone flower bouquets that an artist I know makes by hand using all upcycled materials from nature. Everything is zero waste. He even paints the flowers with a crow feather! Thanks for the great challenge!

  4. Oh I've never seen that Denim Gingerbread ornament before Pam - what a great find! I think I might have to try some of those myself!

  5. This is a cool idea - I'll follow along where I can :) I may end up doing some of the challenges on a different day, but by Christmas, that won't matter at all :D

  6. Whether you're primarily interested in sports, news, entertainment, or a combination of these, Fubo tv connect allows you to choose a plan that aligns perfectly with your preferences.

    Furthermore, the platform provides a range of add-ons and premium channels that can be tailored to your liking. This means you have the flexibility to build a package that caters to your unique viewing needs, without paying for channels you don't want. This level of personalization is a refreshing departure from the one-size-fits-all approach of traditional cable TV.
