Review

I can’t imagine why anyone would want to make their own Christmas cards and decorations, at least anyone with a job. Who has the time? But that’s the great joy of these Kirstie Christmas specials, it’s good fun to sit back and watch her do all the work as you plan to buy every last gaudy, mass-produced bauble from the ‘Seasonal’ aisle of your local supermarket, confident in the knowledge that they will be ground to dust by clumsy feet come Boxing Day.

So while you’re slumped on the couch, perhaps nursing an early glass of something sparkling, Kirstie the Craft Elf makes all the Christmas trimmings from scratch. These shows are always a delight to look at – all twinkly and spangly – so prepare to feel the stirrings of Christmas cheer as Kirstie makes mince pie popcorn, a neon star and traditional gifts.

Summary

Kirstie Allsopp presents a festive guide to arts and crafts, demonstrating how to create presents, decorations and treats in next to no time. For inspiration, she visits a Christmas fair, indulging in local produce and learning how to make all manner of delights, from a neon star and tie-dyed gifts to mince-pie popcorn with tree syrup. She also offers up three types of Christmas tree - Scandinavian-style, recycled and retro - and prepares her favourite cocktail ready for a party.
