DIY craft retailer Hobbycraft's key Christmas colours for 2013 are classic red and white, while the product range is to be updated with Nordic-inspired pieces, new festive décopatch lines and advent, dinner and tree crafts.
Table decorations included paper origami place settings and centrepieces made of sweets and feathers.
The team got involved in making origami decorations with craft expert Mark Bolitho. Other activities included making decoupage hearts, Christmas wreaths and laser cut cards.
One of the newest items to be sold this Christmas is an advent house that is purchased plain so that it can be decorated with Hobbycraft's décopatch Papier-mâché.
