'Tis the season to get crafting. (Getty Images)

Yahoo Life's editors are committed to independently selecting wonderful products at great prices for you. We may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Pricing and availability are subject to change.

From homemade baubles to gingerbread houses and even a lovingly decorated plate for Santa's mince pies - whether you're a seasoned artisan or a novice crafter, there's something about Christmas that brings out the urge to get creative and festoon our homes with DIY delights.

Chilly weekends spent fashioning paper chains and homemade Christmas cards is a sure fire way to get into the festive spirit. So we've rounded up some of the best kits to make your DIY decorations extra special this year. 

From Christmas cards and paper chains even the youngest children can help out with, to Christmas wreaths and crochet snowflakes, scroll down to find our top picks from the shops in 2021.

Stitched Christmas Card Kit - Craft Card (bthemaker/Etsy)

We love the contemporary minimalist design of these embroidered cards and it couldn't be simpler to make them, as this kit contains three pre-punched cards, envelopes, thread and an embroidery needle. If this will be a family activity, the seller will very kindly include extra embroidery needles. One shopper who bought the kit last year wrote in a review that they "had the best time making these! Super cute cards and really easy to make. A very happy customer and with the reaction I got, will be ordering more next year - love them."

Create Your Own Christmas Card Kit (PostboxParty/ Etsy)

A bestseller on Etsy, this set is great for younger kids. Each kit includes festive stickers, cutouts of Santa, snowman and reindeer, as well as envelopes for 12 cards. With googly eyes and pompoms, you can make each card unique.

Snowflake Christmas Decoration Crochet Kit (Suzie Jules /Not On The High Street)

Craft delicate crochet snowflakes perfect for decorating trees, hanging in windows or adding to the wrapping on particularly special gifts. The kit includes all the yarn and equipment needed to make three snowflakes, as well as metallic yarn, ribbon and beads to add your own flourishes to each one.

39-Piece Christmas Baubles to Decorate in Different Sizes (Artemio/ Amazon)

These white baubles offer a blank canvas to be decorated with paper, paints, inks, stickers, felt or fabric. To get an on-trend marbled look decorate them using Marabu Easy Marble Paint Assortment and to give them an ultra luxe finish top them off with Berisfords Velvet Ribbon.

Christmas Bauble Pom Pom Craft Kit (Wool Couture/ John Lewis & Partners)

Currently trending on the John Lewis website, this easy craft is simple enough to do with young children, or quite relaxing to do during a cosy evening curled up in front of a Christmas movie. The kit contains yarn, cable ties, silver hanging cord and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process to make 9cm pompoms for your Christmas tree.

Gingham Paper Chain Craft Kit (CottonClara /Etsy)

These pretty paper chains are designed to be used year after year, as they don't need tape or glue to hold them together. Instead they feature a clever paper locking design, which means they can be easily taken apart at the end of the festive season. Choose your pack colour – mustard, yellow, blue, green, red, pink or a combination of all – and then craft away to make a beautiful paper chain. Each pack contains 48 paper loops, which makes a roughly 2.4 metre chain.

2 Pack Wire Wreath Frame Wire Wreath Making Rings (Sumind/Amazon)

If you're a fan of foraging for sprigs of evergreen foliage/eucalyptus/rosemary while out on wintery walks (or just have a flourishing winter garden/well stocked florist nearby), it can be surprisingly simple (not to mention cheap) to fashion your own Christmas wreaths using these wire rings.

Frosted Wreath Kit (Hobbycraft)

If you prefer to get all your supplies in one go, this kit (which is a top-rated product at Hobbycraft) contains everything you need to craft a Christmas wreath to bring out year after year. As well as the wreath base, the set includes white berries and greenery that can be styled in your own design. One shopper who bought it recently commented in the reviews: "Such a beautiful and very simple kit to work with, it made a beautiful wreath. I would definitely recommend it and I will purchase it again."

Gingerbread House Kit (Honeywell Biscuit Co/ Not On The High Street)

The step-by-step recipe card in this kit makes it easy to create a tasty house, even if you're not an experienced baker. It includes templates, a piping bag, sweets and all the dry ingredients you'll need, (you'll just need to add butter, eggs and golden syrup). 

If you're after a gluten-free version, Lakeland stock a lovely festive kit for £7.99, or if you'd rather buy your gingerbread pre-made and ready to decorate, you can pick up a Biscuiteers Hansel & Gretel DIY Gingerbread House Kit for £35 at JoJoMaman Bebe.

Make Your Own Christmas Crackers 6pcs (Yol Store/ Amazon)

Making your own crackers is a fun activity to do with children, plus it means you can avoid the usual plastic tat you find inside them and instead fill them with mini gifts or chocolates that you know will delight your guests. There's space to write a name on each cracker so you can ensure your nephew doesn't end up with granny's miniature whisky. The pack includes the card, ribbon ties, hats, forfeits and snaps to make six crackers.

Santa & Reindeer Porcelain Plates (Baker Ross/Amazon)

Ensure Father Christmas always remembers the treats left out for him at your house, by presenting them on a home-painted plate. Decorate using porcelain paint pens. Each kit contains two small dishes, one for slices of carrots for the reindeer and one for sweets or a small mince pie for the big man himself. 

Colour-In Pyjamas (Selfie Craft Co/ Kidly)

Snuggly festive pyjamas and a craft in one, this kit makes a great pre-Christmas treat. The pyjamas are available in sizes for kids aged three to four or four to six, plus the set comes with seven coloured fabric pens and a practice paper to ensure the final take is a master piece.
