Once Thanksgiving rolls around, I’m thinking about what Christmas crafts I want to make. In fact, the day after Thanksgiving my daughters and I started making homemade ornaments for our Christmas tree.
Isn’t this a cute red and white sign to DIY? It has Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph written on it. This would be easy to create with stencils in the paint colors of your choice.
This wall display starts out with a painted piece of wood with a sign, then hooks have been added to hold the children’s stockings.
This red and white Christmas ribbon wreath looks easy to make. Using your fingers to create the loops, using hot glue, this would be a fast craft to make.
The photo above reminds me of my elementary school days. There are lots of vintage elements in this Christmas display.
Photo Transfer Ornaments:
Photo transfer ornaments look fun to make.
Use red and white string to hang the ornaments on the tree. With the vintage feel of the ornaments, this craft is sure to please family and friends.
If you’ve got clothespins and green paint, you’re well on your way to creating this wreath. You could also use miniature clothespins to make a Christmas tree ornament.
You could make the above project using picture frames and free printables. .
Use your fanciest frames and spray paint them. If you don’t have any pretty frames, hit the flea market or antique mall to see what you can find.
Mini Snow Globe Ornaments:
This little mini snow globe ornament begins with a vintage light bulb. Put a miniature Christmas tree inside. Then add red and white string to hang it on the Christmas tree.
Paint Brush Ornaments:
Paint brushes can even become Christmas tree ornaments. Paint the paint brush as desired and glue on embellishments. Then use ribbon and rick-rack to hang them on the tree.
Here are adorable mini cloche ornaments to create.
I don’t know exactly what they used here for the cloche, but I was thinking you could use clear plastic wine glasses to use as a cloche as well.
Put your mini scene inside and glue a piece of scalloped cardboard/scrapbook paper to the bottom.
I love crafts, and all of these projects appeal to me. Happy Christmas crafting!
