Create Challenge, December 2021: Do-It-Yourself Holiday Gifts

Create Challenge December 2021 by DG

Amazon Prime letting you down because the boss is in orbit? Santa's reindeer are on strike for new sleigh bells? The delivery dates for the must-have toys this year are somewhere in the next millennium?

Never fear: our ancestors knew what to do: make them yourself!

If there's a craft fair or Weihnachtsmarkt in your vicinity, you're covered. Always lots of fun items there. But why not add the personal touch? You don't need to be a master craftsperson or prize-winning needlesmith to produce some engaging toys for the little ones (and even older folk) on your holiday gift list: make them yourself.

That's where you Create-ive people come in. Share your favourite homemade gift ideas.

Are you good at…

  • Woodworking?
  • Needlecraft?
  • Cut-and-paste?
  • Decoupage?
  • Origami?
  • Some arcane skill the Post Editor hasn't heard of yet?

Enlighten us!

Please include photos or sketches, if you can. Remember: you may be writing for beginners, so explain everything. Don't worry: We'll do our best to convert between metric and non-metric in order to help out our do-it-yourselfers.

You'll be performing a public service, and helping to brighten the holidays!
