5 DIY Christmas Craft & Gift Ideas

5 Christmas Craft ProjectsYep, 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.

Orange Pomander youmakeitsimple.com

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.

upcycled sweater stocking2- 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.

red sweater star3- 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.

Felt Mistletoe4- 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.

Dish Soap Felt Mistletoe Gift5-  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.

Seasons Greetings!
