We crafted a spring from a cardstock circle and attached this to the back of our decorations in order to display them!christmas_party_feature_13.jpgHow adorable are these Snowman popcorn holders?! Perfect for stashing snacks, these can be customised however you like! We upcycled boxes by cutting out shapes from Dovecraft A4 foam and adhering these to make the snowman’s features. You could also get creative and make a reindeer face using glitter card or decorate them using paper designs.


Turn your plain paper cups into Christmassy cups with our free Christmas Drink Sleeve printable. These would look great as part of any Christmas party or festive feast, simply print off the template, cut out each label and wrap them around your bottles or cups.
