1. Paperback Christmas Tree – This is actually an old favorite of mine, and I’ve always preferred phonebooks but they take the longest and are becoming harder to find these days.
o Christmas wreaths are always great ideas for Christmas crafts. Best visual for this would be a wreath made of the special Poinsettias of the season. Red and white poinsettias would just swell at the doorway, won’t they ? You can even have the wreath punctuated with green leaves.
Making your own Christmas decoration is one great thing to do with the family to feel the breeze of the holidays. The use of concrete material like Styrofoam, dough and ribbons would make glittering Christmas balls shimmer in your home.
o Another groovy Christmas craft idea is the Santa hat. You’ll just need red cloth, some fluffy cotton and glue to get this Christmas craft real ! Fold the red cloth into a conical shape and stick the edges. Then have a ball of cotton glued at the top and some to border the circular base.
Christmas crafts also include baking pastries or cookies. Kids will love decorating these cookies with colorful icing and candy sprinkles. They can also make different shapes and designs from cookie dough, like angel designs. It is also good bonding time to make holiday candles. Melt some beeswax and roll them up into sheets. Put a wick in the middle before the wax cools. You can also add scents. You can buy a mold to shape the candle more easily.
The internet is a great place to find various types of Christmas crafts for children to engage in. Make sure you attempt to find Christmas crafts that are a good fit for the age and the skills of the children that will be making them. You don’t want them to be bored or overwhelmed when they are making Christmas crafts.
o If you want to go for some handmade Christmas crafts to create something really special, we suggest you make some golden and silver apples. For this you will need some Styrofoam balls and some golden or silver tinfoil to wrap the balls in. Then, make the tail of the apple using a small piece of yellow or green stocking and a wire shaped into an oval. Another method of making golden and silver apples is to cover the Styrofoam balls into a piece of scrap (like silk, organza or satin) on which you have previously sewed some sparkling beads. Whatever technique you will choose to create them, these apples will add an elegant and luxurious touch to the corner they are displayed in. They can be used as decoration items simply put on a plate, they can be mixed with other elements to complete the beauty of a Christmas arrangement or they can be hanged in the Christmas tree.
Enjoying a night of Christmas craft idea brainstorming. It’s 5 days before Christmas. Do you know what sort of Christmas crafts you’re going to make with your kids? If you’re like me, you wait to the last minute to get going on anything. But with xmas crafts, it doesn’t matter whether you wait til the last minute or plan ahead.
