Our final festive craft this year are these Christmas tree and present hand warmers. They are pretty simple to make and are brilliant “on no I forgot to buy a present” present. You could whip one of these up in about 20 minutes with some scrap fabric and a bit of rice! For the full tutorial on how to make them head over to the Laura Ashley blog.

We would never have thought two years ago that we would be coming up with craft projects for Laura Ashley. Our latest is a tutorial for how to make a little suitcase dollshouse from the Amelia Suitcases you can buy from Laura Ashley. Our girls absolutely adore them – they’ve been taking them to bed with them, stuffed full of incorrectly proportioned dolls and teddies.

We were mentally making a shopping list as we were wandering round the show!
