Kirstie Allsopp’s back and she’s tailoring Christmas 2022 to suit you with some fabulously festive crafts, because no matter how you celebrate, big or small, when it’s handmade it can be anything you want it to be.
Helping to bring the yuletide joy this season, Kirstie’s invited some truly magical makers, as well as two special little helpers who learn how to turn lonely old socks into fun festive friends. Embracing the wintery theme, Kirstie is let loose on a block of ice with power tools, before going inside to learn one of this year’s hottest new crafting trends.
In the kitchen, Kirstie overcomes her fear of making pastry, with a decadent choux pastry wreath, and shows us that craft and cooking go hand in hand with Christmas crackers made from pasta. And to wash it all down, she serves up a boozy hot chocolate that’s sure to warm your cockles. Kirstie also makes bespoke wire decorations and miniature walnut dioramas, and shares tips on how to make personalised paper to add an extra sparkle to your wrapping. With the finest crop of customisable Christmas crafts, Kirstie helps us add the magic and joy to our very own Christmas!
