Cracking Christmas Giveaway: Day Five

Wednesday, 5 December 2012


Onto Day Five of the giveaway - hope you're enjoying it so far!

My thoughts often turn to crafts at this time of year.  I like to make a new beaded bauble or two for the tree each year - look above to see one I made earlier - but I'll give anything a go.  If you're anything like me, today's prize will be perfect for you!  It's:

An incredibly cute Scruff the Dog knit kit from Gift Horse Kits



If you're a knitting novice, don't worry! This kit is designed especially for beginners and is super easy and satisfying to make. It comes with absolutely everything you need to make your very own Scruff and all you need to do is pick your preferred colour, then get out the needles. It's even easier to complete than the bunnies kit I made, and frankly if I managed that then anyone can!  If you remain unconvinced by your level of knitting ability then it'd still make a fab present for someone - the kits are beautifully packaged.

Pop your details in the box to enter - you know the drill by now.

  1. that's a tricky one as I'm the least crafty person ever. I'm good at decorating the tree though, so I'll settle with that.

  3. Baking! So much baking, and shoving cloves into oranges, last year I made candles as Christmas presents which was refreshingly simple. But mostly I like to eat what I make at Christmas

    I've learnt to crochet this year, and I'm making a real effort to make a lot of my gifts this Christmas.

  5. Is everyone seeing a question somewhere that I can't? People seem to be answering some kind of 'what do you make at Christmas?' poser but I can't see it anywhere, I've thought this on previous days too!

    Anyway that's by the by. I love making simple baubles from pompoms :)

  7. I love knitting or sewing cute accessories and making special photo collages for my friends and family at Christmas, being handmade makes them special and it also helps the pennies stretch further. :)

  20. I create Jewllery mainly beaded for gifts, I always really enjoy turning the house into a winter wonderland as I put all the 'normal daily' decoration around the house away & replace it with Christmas decs & art, however this does take me a good week to do bit by bit but the house looks amazing once I've finished.

  32. I'm terminally un-crafty, but I do like to make Christmas cards- I haven't had time this year, but I do make rather nice ones, if I say so myself. I also wrap in Brown paper and decorate it with pretty ribbons, glitter or extras.
