Christmas craft activities … for grown ups

Why should the kids have all the fun with Christmas craft activities?   I Made It Myself have a selection of fun, stylish and grown up Christmas crafts for corporate parties, press days and events… For groups of 10 and over, the sessions can be sit down 2 hour masterclasses, quick drop in’s, or anywhere in between, we can tailor our ‘Christmas Crafternoons’ for a bespoke experience.

I Made It Myself Christmas craft activities

Choose from our stylish and seasonal selection of hands-on activities: Christmas bauble customising (our personal favourite!), Christmas paper craft and gift tag making, gift wrap masterclass with lots of fun ideas, Christmas wreath making (go deluxe with roses, or classic and trad), Christmas stocking decorating and good old Christmas jumper accessorising, (although strictly speaking its a Christmas sweatshirt rather than a jumper).

We are not adverse to a bit of festive sparkle but we do try to keep glitter to a minimum (it can get everywhere!) – but please note, we are a strictly tinsel free zone!



Christmas Bauble Decorating for parties and events

We had a bauble-tastic month in December as we ran our ‘Never Mind the Baubles’ (a.k.a Christmas bauble decorating) at events and parties in London.  We go for good quality plain white mat baubles, red, silver and champagne gold as a neutral base with a selection of lettering, embellishments, glue pens, fine glitter, ribbons and twine for some creative, Christmas fun.

We brought our baubles to Browns Hotel in Mayfair for Next who were hosting a Festive Afternoon Tea event for bloggers. After sampling the gorgeous sandwiches, mini cakes and champagne – everyone got stuck in making some gorgeous, personalised creations for their Christmas trees.

Baubles also featured in our Christmas Crafternoons for Soho House Christmas activites for their members.  We ran the event for them at Shoreditch House and Soho House.  The bauble decorating was brilliantly popular but there was other festive decorations made including tissue paper pom poms as well as printed gift tags and bags and mini garlands.

At the o2 Christmas event – a wide range of creative activities followed a conference at Evolution in Battersea Park.  We provided 3 of the activities available; candle making (with Christmassy scents of course), chocolate making and our Christmas crafternoon complete with bauble decorating.

The residents and employees of St Katherine’s Dock enjoyed a spot of bauble decorating (and bags and gift tag printing) as well as sampling delicious street food and picking up a few gifts from the stalls packed with gorgeous hand made gifts at the fun and festive annual Christmas event.

So after a month of Christmas Crafternoons all over town, we have concluded it’s impossible not to have fun decorating baubles, and it can be slightly addictive!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! x
