Edible DIY Christmas Craft -- Santa's Winter Village

Happy Week of Christmas! How on earth did that happen? This month has whirled by for us in a fun and crazy blur and I can hardly believe that Christmas is practically here! Since we’ve been so busy I’m packing many of our yearly traditions into one fun, festive marathon this week.

One thing that the kids have always loved doing is making a holiday village that’s edible. This time of year is jam-packed with so many treats, however, that added one more extra load of sugar just never feels like a good idea, and we often ended up throwing most of it away. I didn’t want to spoil the fun, but I knew that there had to be a better option that giving them one that was loaded down with sugar.

Christmas jumpers that I wish I could have this Christmas

Christmas jumpers that I wish I could have this Christmas

The classic Christmas jumper is considered to be a slightly unfortunate piece thanks to its various depictions in films like Bridget Jones Diary and Harry Potter. They can be cheesy, ill-fitting, full of humour and good sentiments, but not exactly something you’d want to be seen wearing outside of the house. With the right knit, however, the Christmas jumper could just become the most covetable piece of festive wear in your wardrobe, which you could wear for get-togethers and meals out. For us fashion-conscious Christmas lovers, there are many different seasonal options that will have your feeling merry and bright, but without the cheesy snow men and the blindingly bright colour palates. Here are some of the best festive knits to get you in the mood for Christmas with their gorgeous embellishments and designs.
