Christmas crafting projects for the table and kitchen - Christmas Shouldn't Cost the Earth

This week I'm looking at things to make for the table and kitchen for Christmas.  I already have a few basic placemats that I made a couple of years ago with some Christmas Fabric I was given.

This week I made some Christmas Pot Holders.

  I used my own tutorial for these and made them 
with jeans pockets, fleece scraps for the batting
 and more Christmas Fabric  which I was given a few years ago.

Plus I also made a couple of Christmas Mug Rugs - upcycled from old clothes. The tutorial for these mug rugs is here.

Here are some more great ideas for crafting your own Christmas table and kitchen projects!

I hope you've got some inspiration from all of these great Christmas crafting ideas.
