The Spa Sweethearts were feeling festive in November – and our crafting session gave us great tips and ideas for Christmas with plenty of time left to go and make them at home.
We started by making Christmas crackers. It was surprisingly easy – a couple of toilet roll inners, some wrapping paper and a snap were all we needed to make a basic cracker. We just had to decide what went inside them and how we decorated them.
After that, we tried our hands at making Christmas cards which featured a 3D Christmas tree. Again, the process was surprisingly simple and we just had to decide how we wanted to decorate them once they were put together.
Crafters Gemma, Ilona, Elisa and Georgi had provided plenty of sparkle to make sure our crafts felt suitably festive. Because they weren’t too complicated, we were able to chat while we worked without risking everything going horribly wrong.
At the end of the night, Gemma invited everyone to the crafting sessions she runs as a sub-group of Spa Sweethearts – a good chance to practise our newly-acquired skills and learn some new ones.
Now the Spa Sweethearts know how to make stylish crackers and cards, there will be some beautifully adorned tables and mantelpieces around Harrogate and beyond this Christmas.
