Yep, the holiday season is here and I’m feeling the intensity of all the hustle and bustle. ARE YOU? There is a big part of me that wants to just nestle in and make some kind of Christmas craft. Christmas would just not be the same without a DIY project of some kind.
I hope you’re carving out a little time to just chill and create something festive. It doesn’t have to be a major thing, sometimes it’s those simple little projects that are the most rewarding. If you want a little project or Christmas craft to whip up, here are a few fun ideas.
1- Orange Pomanders
I have been making orange pomanders for years and it just doesn’t seem like Christmas until we have made a few orange pomanders. I love the cheery orange and green color they add to the holiday decor, and the citrus clove aroma is amazing!
It is a fun, easy project to make with the kids. This is a good time to sit, turn on some Christmas music, and enjoy each others company while you make something fun for the holidays.
You can find the complete tutorial HERE.
2- Christmas Stockings
It’s always fun to have a unique Christmas stocking, and one that is made from a variety of upcycled sweaters is the best! Of course, you can make these from woven cotton fabric as well.
In this tutorial, I walk you through the process, which is quite easy and quick. You can find the tutorial and pattern link HERE.
3- sweater stars
These little stars are a unique little craft. They can be made from upcycled sweaters, which really give them a cozy texture or knit and woven fabric pieces can also be used.
You can embellish them with a cute button, jingle bell or felted wool ball.
These stars are cut hung on a doorknob, hung on the tree, or sitting on a cupboard.

4- felted wool mistletoe
I love having greenery in my house in the winter and a cute little sprig of mistletoe with its contrasting white berries and a red ribbon hung above the door is a breath of fresh air to me, and a great way to get a few more of those heart felt kissaroos. Who couldn’t use a little more loven in your home?
This is a fun and unique way to use a piece of felted wool. Regular felt pieces can also be used.
The tutorial can be found HERE.
5- Dish soap gift
If you’re looking for a NON-FOOD gift for your neighbors or friends, this dish soap idea is kinda fun. A plate of cookies or Christmas candy is a nice gift, but sometimes I like to give something that is not SWEETS and a little more practical.
I love Mrs. Meyers holiday scent soaps. The pine and peppermint scents are so yummy. You can get the whole story and free PDF download HERE.
There you have it, 5 Christmas crafts to choose from. I hope you’ll take the time to slow down, gather your family and friends and enjoy some holiday crafting.
