Yes seriously, I made these Christmas decorations from bread.

After making the first batch, I soon realised this is a brilliant addition to any mum's repertoire of Christmas crafts for kids.

They are so cheap and easy to make and, they look really trendy. You can find my step by step video tutorial on how to make these Christmas decorations here on YouTube.

I have seen decorations like this in the fashionable places where they sell ridiculously expensive home decor items to people with money to burn.

(Usually in places where they also have barn style cafe's full of trendy food that costs a small fortune!)

There seems to be a thing going on for decorations that are quite textured with dense fibres.

Well guess what, that's what these look like! And for a fraction of the cost.

  1. Thanks for this Gilly, We too are doing Christmas Crafts for Children on Thursday this week and on Sat Nov 19th in th eApex, not quite as cheap as yours perhaps but not mega expensive either. Just a couple of sheets of card, some paint and and 2 Elizabeth Shaw chocolates to make some Christmas tree hanging decorations.

  2. Thank you for this idea! I made 2 them two years ago and they still keep. Children had lots of fun, and so easy! I am going to try making them with the children from my afterschool activity group.

    1. Yes I know – it’s amazing how long they keep! Thanks so much for taking time to comment and good luck with your afterschool activity group – I’m sure they will love it.
