With the nights drawing in, autumn is the perfect season to get your craft on and start working out ideas for what to make your friends and family for Christmas. We’ve picked out five super cute craft tutorials for you to try that will make great inexpensive gifts.

#1 Animal Pom-Poms by Mr Printables

animal-pompoms-totem

We love pom-poms here at Freds, they couldn’t be easier to make and they are great for decorating just about anything! This Animal pom-pom tutorial by Mr Printables is little bit more advanced than making standard poms with a pom-pom maker but the results look great. We think these animal pom-poms would make amazing bunting for a kids room.
