Here at Joel & Son we are always inspired by our customer’s creations and imagination. As Christmas is a time of giving, we thought we’d dedicate this blog post to showing you some of our favourite decoration ideas by talented crafters which you can make at home in time for Christmas.
Fabric Christmas Wreaths
Show guests and even the postman you mean business this Christmas with these pretty wreaths made from strips of fabric tied to a simple wire frame. You can even further embellish these with beads and buttons (as shown in the second design) and tailor the colours to suit the rest of your Christmas theme. This is a great way to use fabric off-cuts and leftovers.

Playstations and bikes won’t fit in these very easily but these classic decorations will easily accommodate oranges and lumps of coal…only joking! Your kids will love rummaging through these on Christmas mornings for years to come. A great investment of time and fabric in our opinion!
