There's a lovely cosiness to the winter season that we are fully embracing into the new year! That calls for some cosy new year crafting - with materials including beeswax, yarn and evergreen, you'll be keeping creative through the colder months!
Without further ado, take a look at our top Winter Crafting...
We're often drawn to knitting in the colder winter months. The soft yarn just feels to warm and tactile and it's a lovely repetitive craft to do in the cosy comfort of your home (maybe with a good tv series or podcast alongside!).
Leg warmers are a super easy knitting pattern and give your ankles that little extra warmth to keep the chilly air away!
Beeswax candles not only provide a lovely yellow glow, they are easy to make and full of benefits, including longer burn times, pulling toxins from the air, and being chemical and heavy fragrance free.
The process is very therapeutic as you repetitively dip the wick into the melted beeswax and into cold water again and again to get the thickness you want. They make for lovely gifts wrapped in string and are a great way to brighten up the winter months.
Wreaths don't have to just be for Christmas! From the 16th century it's been tradition in western Europe to bring a wreath of evergreen into the home for all the winter months to symbolise life even in the darker season...
There's a surprising amount of lovely dried flowers and weeds (or flowers in the wrong places!) around at this time of year that could be added in along with the evergreen. With a willow woven base, wreaths can be a simple celebration of what nature has to offer us, so why not have a rotating wreath depending on the time of year (keeping the baubles tucked away in the attic!).
From all of us at Craftiosity, keep snug and creative this winter!
