71 CHRISTMAS PART ONE  All that glitters Festive crafts to create the perfect homemade presents this Christmas! EXACLAIR With Christmas rapidly approaching, Décopatch® has launched some new additions to its ever- popular range of papier mâché shapes and papers for the festive celebrations. The new additions include a nativity scene kit containing seven mâché shapes to decorate, as well as a stable which can be used as storage when the festivities are over. The pretty hanging flower wreath comes with brass fasteners and can be decorated to suit individual tastes. The flowers are also detachable, making it easier to decorate. Perfect for small table gifts, the new box crackers can be reused year after year, with the added bonus that they can be decorated to co-ordinate with the table dressing. Just for fun, several hanging decorations have been introduced to this festive range and are sure to bring some smiles around the Christmas tree! These include an amusing rotund unicorn, sleigh, mittens, raclette pan and spatula, plus a selection of picture frames. Also introduced for Christmas 2021 are four new limited edition textured foil paper packs, named Make a wish, Snow, Starry night and Natural. Each pack contains four co-ordinated 30cm x 40 cm sheets of textured paper, perfect for creating harmonised decorations. +44 (0)1553 696 600
