#craftblogclub Secret Santa 2015

IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE! ITS CHRISTMAS EVE! Can you believe it? I'd thought I'd finish off before Christmas with a Secret Santa Post...

One of the most exciting things about Christmas is the surprises and with that in mind and being a keen crafter I signed up to the #craftblogclub 's Secret Santa 2015. This also makes my final craft of my 12 Crafts of Christmas series! (Yes I only did 10 but ssh)

The challenge was to create a handmade gift for one of the fellow #craftblogclub makers. I got the lovely Gill from The Little Soap Kitchen and I chose to make her a Christmas themed banner.

I had lots of fun creating this festive themed banner, this time using red felt and bakers twine to give a Christmassy feel. For a step by step tutorial on how to make your own banner, check out my tutorial here and here for the video.

Now I'm not sure if this is technically cheating but I also added in some scented wax melts. I didn't make them myself but they are however hand made by LubyLu and they smell insane. 

Now as any crafter will know, wrapping is also important and I've been loving rustic wrapping this year which you may have seen in my 5 simple Christmas crafts post along with my hand made Christmas cards which revealed to Gill who I was.

I topped the wrapping off by with some yarn and a pom pom because well... why not?

So that was my #craftblogclub Secret Santa 2015. I really hope you you're all having a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family and I'll be back with you on the 29th or 31st to have a round up of 2015.

Merry Christmas!
