DIY Decorations For Christmas


Did you know that in previous years Brits have spent an average of £355 on Christmas decorations?

With all the food, gifts and decorations, the cost of Christmas slowly builds up.

To help bring your costs down and get you into the festive spirit we’re here to help you decorate your homes and classrooms with our top DIY decorations for Christmas.


These aren’t your ordinary furry reindeers. These are chocolate malt ball reindeers.

To make your chocolate malt reindeers you’ll need the following:

  • An Empty Jar
  • Brown Cardboard Paper
  • Googly Eyes
  • Red Pom Poms
  • Brown Pipe Cleaners
  • Maltesers (the most important ingredient)

And the best part about crafting these reindeers is you get to eat the chocolate once you’ve finished with them (providing you store them in the right conditions).
