At this time of the year, many of you will be thinking about Christmas decorations, gifts and more. Why do not you do this year? We have found 21 DIY Christmas crafts that you can make at home. There are a variety of ideas, from tree decorations to cards that you can distribute to family and friends. Whether you’re a freshman in the creative arena or a bit of a pro, you have to do something.
1. CHRISTMAS TREE GARLAND
First, we have this cute Christmas tree garland. The trees were made of felt in a cool color palette. All you have to do is cut out tree shapes in different colored felts and put them on a string. You could glue or sew the trees. We love the colors used because they are wintry, but you could choose something more festive like red.
2. WOOD CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATION
Next, we have a creative tree decoration idea. Sticks of different lengths and cords were used to create a wooden hanging tree. The tree was finished with cute balls. This is a unique idea and would look festive on any wall. You can do this in any size.
3. SPARKLY PEG DECORATION
Do not twirl just to hang clothes. This next idea shows you how to make your tree sparkle with pins. All you need is a box of wooden nails, glitter, string and glue. When the pins are glued together in this way, they form a star or snowflake design. Re-create this design or choose your own.
4. WINTER WONDERLAND FRAME
Our next idea looks very difficult, but it is not! For this Christmas boot you need an online available box frame, a glitter background, artificial snow and a sticker or a color of your choice. Place the glitter background in the frame and then add the snow. Close it and put the sticker on or paint your words or design. You could make something like a present.
5. BAUBLE WREATH
Wreaths are a must for the Christmas decoration. This wreath is not the classic traditional green that you would normally get, it’s gold, glitter and glamor! The wreath shows golden balls, hearts and reindeer. It would look stunning and festive on every door. There are online tutorials that will help you to do something similar.
6. CHRISTMAS STRING ART
String Art is trendy and unique. You can give your art a festive look by creating a Christmas tree like this one. DIY crafts like this take time, practice and patience, but the result will be worth it. You can also give this to someone.
7. Tutorials are available to help you get started in string art. CUTE PINE CONE DECORATIONS
If you are looking for cute Christmas crafts, our next choice is for you! This craftsman has made cute little figures out of pine cones. On the pine cones, a wooden bead is glued on, so that it looks like a head. The head was then painted. Finally, small accessories such as hats, gloves and scarves were added. We love these, they make every house look like a Christmas tree.
8. SPARKLY SNOWFLAKE
Next we have a sparkling snowflake craft. For this you need felt and sequins. Cut out a snowflake design on felt. You can use a template and then sew on your sequins. You could hang them on the wall or put them in a tree. If blue is not your color, you can try another color like white, silver or gold.
9. DIY ADVENT CALENDAR
An advent calendar is a must for the countdown to Christmas. Instead of buying one, why not make one ?! When you create it, you get a unique calendar that can be populated with any content. This was made of cardboard tubes, sticks and a string. Put your calendar together and decorate it with the tag. You can decorate as you like.
10. ORANGE POMANDER BALLS
Orange Pomander balls are traditional and easy to craft. All you need is an orange, something small and sharp like toothpicks, cloves and ribbons. Use the toothpick to drill holes in the orange and then press in the carnations. You can then finish with a ribbon. These will look like Christmas and smell good!
