Must Have Christmas Crafts

O’Kay! Maybe I’m a little dramatic and obsessed about DIY for Christmas but y’all, I’m serious about the most magical time of the year.

There are so many great DIY Christmas craft ideas, and I want to do them all. Yikes!!! I can’t wait to share them all with you.

I also shared How to Prepare for Christmas Decorating Now a few weeks ago. That post helps you determine what Christmas Craft Supplies you’ll need for the holidays and ensure you get all the really cool stuff.

Some Favorites Craft Ideas From Seasons Past

First, I’ll share a few projects that you may enjoy making this year.

Christmas Craft Supplies For Topiaries

These projects are enhanced with foraged twigs, pinecones, and cedar. The twig topiary is painted white with chalk paint.

You also need to know How to Dry Fruit for your holiday projects! This tutorial is a budget-friendly way to add rustic charm to all your holiday decorating.

Easy Ticking Christmas StockingsSee Tutorial for a NO-Sew Version

Red Stripe Ticking Fabric – This is my go-to fabric for Christmas, Memorial Day, 4th of July, etc. Here are just a few projects that I use this fabric for. You’ll also need some wooden beads for the tassels; you can see how to make them in this tutorial.

Easy to Flock Christmas Trees

Adding faux snow is one easy way to add winter charm to your existing Christmas decorations and foraged supplies.

Light Weight Spackling is a must for adding a little snow to almost any Christmas Decor. It looks great on bottle brush trees, existing Christmas trees, pinecones, foraged twigs, and more. See how to flock to everything for Christmas.

Dried Fruit and Herb Garland

Gather your dried fruit, fresh herbs, and a few ornaments like these wooden snowflakes, Wooden Beads, and brass ornaments to construct a unique and creative Christmas Garland.

You only need a few additional supplies, which include Jute Rope and Jute Twine. I use these items all year long but wow, they are perfect for this project.

One of my favorite DIY Christmas Craft ideas from last winter was these DIY Paper Bag Snowflakes. I just ordered these white bags to make some more for this year.

You can also see how I used the white paper bags on my banister Christmas Garland.

The snowflakes were attached with the large jute rope, and Large Metal Bells were used to enhance the banister garland.

Air Dry Clay Ornaments

Another fun and easy Christmas Craft Idea is to make air-dry clay ornaments. They can be used for ornaments, place cards on table settings, and package toppers.

Christmas Craft Supplies needed:

DIY Felt Christmas Trees and Christmas Craft Supplies

These felt trees are so fun and easy to make. They are a great Christmas craft idea for young and old.

You can watch the video tutorial or read the step-by-step instructions on the blog post.

I found these felt sheets in colors that I adore and these that are sold by the yard. These wooden bases are also great if you don’t cut your own.

You can forage for the wooden bases and twigs for the tree trunks.

You will need a hot glue gun to complete this easy tutorial.

Future Christmas Craft Ideas and Craft Supplies

Here are some new Christmas Craft Ideas that I can’t wait to try. In addition, I’ll share the Christmas Craft Supplies you need to make these creative creations.

Chunky White Yarn – Why? Because I want to make some white fuzzy trees for Christmas and I also saw this cute idea.

White Cone Shaped Styrofoam Trees – these are for the white fuzzy trees that I hope to make this season. Below is an example from Hallstrom Home.

DIY Yarn Christmas Trees

This adorable garland from Lindsey at My Creative Days is super easy!

All the supplies are available at these links – precut wooden trees, wooden beads and twine!

This DIY Wood Burned Christmas Tree Garland takes some common craft items and turns them into charming decor for the Christmas season.

Patti at Hearth and Vine shared these wonderful mason jar luminaries and I need these also.

Stock up on Modge Podge Glossy Luster and silver glitter or this SNOW Glitter. You can use mayonnaise jars or mason jars for this craft. Another great place to look for jars is at Thrift Stores. They are usually very cheap.

You can read more about how to save money by shopping in thrift stores.

I’m also ordering some of these flower seeds, and I can’t wait to share that tutorial with you as well.

One more thing: after reading your wonderful Christmas blogs last year, I decided to "go small" with our trees this holiday season (I put up 4 to 5). 😉 I did find an adorable, easy to assemble small flocked tree on Amazon. Not sure if it's okay to post the actual link, but it's called, "Northlight Angel Pine Cones Christmas Tree, 4 ft, Green".
