Isaiah 60:1-3 ‘Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.’

A craft to make – a candy cane made from two pipe cleaners. Very easy to make. You need white and red pipe cleaners and that’s all! Simply twist the two pipe cleaners together and make into a cane shape.

Snowflake craft/DIY

All you need for this snowflake craft – beads and 3 pipe cleaners. Couldn’t be easier! Just criss cross the pipe cleaners to make a star shape and add the beads. Turn the pipe cleaner ends over slightly so the beads stay on. That’s it!

Super-easy icicle Christmas tree decoration

I found this decoration idea on Pinterest. Take a look at the original by Happy Hooligans here. It is so simple and easy to make but also looks great. There is no need for glue or paint either!

All you need are some glittery pipe cleaners, beads – I used circular and star shaped and a pencil to wrap the pipe cleaner around to make the spiral shape.

Make a ‘knot’ at the bottom of the spiral by twisting the pipe cleaner around a few times so that the beads don’t fall off.

Thread the beads on. I chose to leave spaces between groups of three. At the end of the pipe cleaner make a hook shape so it will hang from the Christmas tree.

I loved making this craft. It is so simple but looks fabulous! It is only suitable for children over 5 years old as the beads are a chocking hazard.
