Our Christmas Crafternoon is a fun and festive mix of Christmas crafts. We lay out a selection of stylish materials for people to get stuck into; bauble decorating and personalising, printing your own Christmas gift wrap, making gift tags and paper craft decorations. Leave with a goodie bag of treats to take home.
The week before Christmas, River Island transformed their Style Studio in their flagship Oxford Street store into a snowy winter wonderland for a fun, festive press day. Amongst the snow and fashion were our stations of kids Christmas crafts – providing the mini VIPs with some hands-on and creative activities. The bauble decorating was equally popular with children and the grown ups and involved lots of stars, sequins and glitter. And Christmas stocking decorating meant the kids were all set for Santa!
For this Christmas wreath decorating workshop we use classic blue pine bases for a traditional wreath, we use readymade bases so the focus of the activity is the decorating. (We can however do a full wreath making from scratch if requested). Once everyone has learnt basic techniques on wiring up foliage and other decorations, everyone can decide on their embellishments and their design (stick to a classic look or go freestyle!) using fresh and seasonal foliage and berries plus dried orange and lime slices and cinnamon sticks. Great fun to do and by the end of the session everyone has a wreath ready to take home and hang on their door.
We provided Christmas wreath making activities for Soho House Group (for Soho House and Electric House) – using seasonal and fresh foliage and berries with some dried embellishments as optional extras for a stylish and traditional wreath.
In this deluxe Christmas rose wreath making workshop choose between fresh eucalyptus, sea holly and winter white roses or dark green foliage, berries with deep red roses, plus optional extra embellishments to make a festive front door showstopper. Learn floristry tips on conditioning flowers and foliage and styling ideas.
Please note as fresh roses are used these wreaths need to be made 10 days or less from Christmas Day to ensure they last throughout the festive season and into New Year.
Pull up to the jumper baby.. with some Christmas jumper customising. We give the Christmas jumper a contemporary twist using quality grey marl sweatshirts (in a variety of sizes) ready to be decorated. We’ll pre-order the required sweatshirts in the relevant sizes and bring them along with felt and a large selection of fun and festive trimmings and embellishments, plus glue (or needle and thread for those that prefer). Decide on your design; use templates or go freestyle, then get stuck in. Christmas jumper decorating is fun and sociable, not just for the women, the guys enjoy it as much (if not more!) Wear the finished creation with pride on Christmas Jumper Day!
For a contemporary twist on the classic Christmas jumper we provided a Christmas sweatshirt decorating activity for Claire’s Christmas in July press event at Claridges.
Bauble decorating is one of our favourite festive crafts. We provide high quality matt baubles in white, red and metallics as well as clear along with a selection of letters, embellishments and ribbons and trimmings to create a collection of bespoke baubles ready to take home and hang on your Christmas tree. It’s a great addition for a Christmas event or party.
Brilliantly fun and festive we’ve now hosted four Christmas Crafternoons at Soho House and Shoreditch House. Their members spent an afternoon personalising baubles, decorating tags and bags, printing their own wrapping paper and making garlands and tissue paper pom poms over mulled wine and mince pies.
As part of Next’s Christmas social media event, we ran our popular Christmas bauble decorating activity at Browns Hotel in Mayfair. We tied in with their branding and colour scheme as well as their online message for the event.
