As you can probably guess, crafting with the kids is one of our favourite things to do. So we thought it was only right to celebrate the festive season with a Little Buttons Christmas craft party where we all sat happily together and made our own sparkly hats!

Potato Print Christmas Stocking

How to potato print a christmas stocking

Hobbycraft asked us to create a Christmas Stocking for a pet, so we used our trusty potato printing skills to make this stamped stocking with an appliquéd name and Christmas tree tag. Stamping is super easy and a lovely project to do with kids. If you don’t have a pet, you can change the design to make a handmade gift for another family member. Simply cut basic shapes into potatoes (such as baubles, stars or triangles to make into Christmas trees) and stamp on your design using fabric or acrylic paints. For see our full tutorial visit the Hobbycraft site. They’ve got so many lovely Christmas craft DIYs to try!
