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 Crafts, 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 you need for the holidays and ensure you don’t miss out on the really cool stuff.

First Some Favorite Ideas From Last year

Cedar Topiaries Tutorial

Green Cone Shaped Styrofoam Trees – these are for adding natural greenery like this project from last year.

Floral Pins – you need these for the Cedar Topiary project for sure.

You also need to know How to Dry Fruit for your holiday projects!

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, and you can see how to make them in this tutorial.

Christmas Craft Ideas

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

Vintage DIY Letters and Numbers Stamp Set – This goes with that cute idea below but there are so many uses. Make holiday gift tags, stamp messages directly onto your packages, make your own Christmas Cards with personalized stamped messages and on and on.

Cute idea from Sweet Tidings Blogspot. These would make great gift tags.

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.

DIY Felt Christmas Trees

These felt trees are so fun and easy to make.

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. Plus, these wooden bases are great if you don’t cut your own.

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.

These air-dried clay ornaments from First Day Of Home sparked some ideas, and I’ve got my air dry clay on order. I can’t wait to share what I have planned.

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".
