A Year in Crafts : 52 Seasonal Projects to Make and Give Hardback
by Clare Youngs
Start in January by making a handmade diary so you can start the year fresh and organised, while in March you can revamp your home for the annual spring clean with a new chair seat or a vintage-inspired embroidered tablecloth.
In April there are Easter decorations to make, and you can start getting ready for the planting season with a container full of your favourite herbs for the garden.
Get inspired in July with an outdoor garland and pretty paper butterflies and moths.
If you're going on holiday in August, prepare by making a recycled luggage label so you can spot your suitcase at the airport, and in September make a lunchbox or pencil case to keep those back-to-school blues at bay.
In October, it's time for Halloween again, and you can celebrate by carving mini pumpkins and squash to hang in a tree outside your house.
November is the best time to start preparing for Christmas, so start making your presents now and you won't have to be in a rush at the last moment.
Make a beautiful gilded star for your tree in the first week of December, as well as unique decorations to make your home look festive. You'll be truly inspired with Clare Youngs' lovely projects, so whether you want to make each project as the year progresses, or dip in and out of the book, you'll never be bored with A Year in Crafts.
