My Top 10 Christmas Ideas

top 10 christmas ideas

I thought I’d put together my top 10 Christmas ideas in one post so that they are easier to find. Hopefully you can find some inspiration here for your own celebrations.

These santa hat brownies are great to make and bring along to a Christmas gathering where you have to bring a plate to share. I’ve seen some recently at a party where cheesecake was used at the bottom instead but be advised if it’s hot they will flop. A firm base like a brownie works better.

I made these Christmas tree cake pops back when they were first popular and they kids loved them. We’ve also made snowmen pops before too.

tree skirt and felt garland Collage

This Christmas tree skirt was one of the first big Christmas decorations I made for our family and love pulling it out every year. I was getting worried last week when hubby said he had pulled out all the boxes of decorations and it wasn’t there but there was one more box tucked away.

This lolly felt garland is easy to make and only needs a few materials – felt, beads and string.

reindeer noses and kissmass hersheys Collage

We made these reindeer noses as gifts for the girls school class last year. A refreshing change to candy canes!

A couple of years ago we made stickers for the bottom of chocolate Hershey’s Kisses saying “Merry Kissmas” and packaged them up for their friends. We made some upcycled apples out of lemonade bottles and filled them with kisses for their teachers too.

ribbon wreath and homemade icecream Collage

Another simple but effective decoration is this ribbon wreath which can be made into any Christmas colour combination.

As gifts for neighbours and friends last year I made some yummy chocolate ice-cream to fill little ice-cream containers and then personalised them with our own ice-cream labels.

gingerbread Collage

It wouldn’t be Christmas without gingerbread and I have some great tips for making a fantastic gingerbread house on an old blog post. These cute gingerbread men were also made last year and packed in brown paper bags as gifts along with tree and bauble gingerbread cookies as well.
