STACEY Solomon’s endless crafting during lockdown led to a much-deserved book deal which comes out next year.

We asked the 38-year-old to pick out her top five creations so you can make them too…

Seasonal Wreath

Once you’re happy with the design, use a glue gun and bag ties to secure your leaves and flowers

What you need:

  • Basic twig wreath
  • Dried leaves
  • Fejkas (sunflowers and peonies)
  • Pine cones
  • Glue gun
  • Bag ties

What you do:

  1. Take a plain twig wreath and experiment with leaf and flower arrangements.
  2. Once you’re happy with the design, use a glue gun and bag ties to secure your leaves, sunflowers, peonies and pine cones to the wreath.

Pebble Family

Use the largest pebble for the base, then glue the other pebbles together to create a family

What you need:

  • Different-sized pebbles
  • Glue gun
  • Tea light (optional)

What you do:

  1. Use the largest pebble for the base, then glue the other pebbles together to create a family, with the smallest in front.
  2. You could also glue a tea light on to the base.

Dreamcatcher

A circle will form in the middle which will get smaller – pull the string tight to secure the web

What you need:

  • Hoop
  • String
  • Decorations eg crystals, flowers, leaves

What you do:

  1. Using a craft or dreamcatcher hoop, wrap string around the hoop until it’s covered.
  2. Cut 2m of string and tie a knot at the top of the hoop. Working clockwise, stretch the string 5cm across, loop around the hoop and back over itself. Pull the string tight to secure it.
  3. Loop the string around the middle of the first line and repeat step 2 until you reach the top of the hoop. A circle will form in the middle which will get smaller. Pull the string tight to secure the web.
  4. You can add string to the bottom to create a fringe and add crystals, flowers and leaves, like Stacey.

Decorative Initial

Still life 016
You can glue fake roses and leaves to the initial like Stacey has

What you need:

  • Cardboard
  • Spray paint
  • Glue
  • Fejkas (optional)

What you do:

  1. Draw your initial on to a piece of cardboard, or print out a stencil to draw around, then cut it out.
  2. Snip out 4cm-wide strips along the length of a cereal box. The amount you’ll need will vary for each initial.
  3. Glue the cardboard strips around the edges of your initial, until it borders the whole template.
  4. Spray or paint the cardboard white and then leave to dry.
  5. You could also glue fake roses and leaves to the initial, like Stacey has.
  6. Finally, glue the bottom of the initial to a weight and display, or use weight-free as a wall hanging.

What you need:

  • Old tights or socks
  • for the body
  • Old jumper or material for the hat
  • Pompom
  • Rice for the body filling

  • Sewing kit or glue gun to assemble

What you do:

  1. Cut the foot off the tights or socks, fill with rice and tie.
  2. Cut a triangle from an old jumper or piece of material, sew or glue in half to create a tall hat and fill with furry fabric.
  3. Glue or sew the hat to the rice-filled body.
  4. To make the legs, use the leftover tights, fill with rice and glue or sew the legs to the body.
  5. Cut some furry fabric into a triangle for the beard and stick to the top of the body.
  6. Finally, glue or sew a pompom on to the top of the beard for the nose (if you don’t have a pompom, Stacey filled a piece of material with furry fabric and attached it).
