Handmade Christmas crafts

Handmade Christmas decorations
Create your own 1940s-style wartime Christmas decorations out of recycled materials.

During the Second World War, Christmas luxuries were in short supply. Propaganda posters encouraged families to make decorations out of old paper and newspapers.

Make your own handmade Christmas decoration to hang on your tree or give as a gift and bring some Christmas magic into your life.
