Today I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Christmas craft ideas. Some are quick and easy and are perfect for little hands, and a few of the ideas are a bit more involved like Mel’s reusable fabric craft bags shown above.
So if you’re feeling crafty or looking for something to make this weekend to get you in the holiday spirit, I’ve got you covered. 🙂
Here’s to a warm and creative weekend,

Candy Cane Sleighs – Because seriously, what kid wouldn’t want to take time out of their busy weekend to make something made out of candy?

Mel’s DIY Polymer Clay Christmas Ornament Ideas and Tutorial. Seriously, how cool would it be to make one of these? I wish I had one of these handmade ornaments of our own home.

How to Make a Block Print Tea Towel. I took a block printing class with a neighbor and soon became addicted to making making these towels. I even made a few pillows.
This was not only a fun craft project, but I think if you gathered up all the supplies, it would make a nice gift for an artsy teen or young adult too.
How to Make Crazy Patch Pot Holders. A few years ago when I was in Pennsylvania I had the chance to hang out with Zoë and her mom and we made these crazy patch pot holders. They are super fun to make and they’d make a nice gift too.
How to Sew Cloth Napkins for Every Season. This is a photo of Mel’s napkin drawer. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own napkins but didn’t know how…. here’s your chance. 🙂 Mel shows you how in her cloth napkin tutorial.
Sweater Mittens – If you have frozen fingers and an old sweater lying around your house make these sweater mittens! Talk about upcycling at its finest.
And lastly, check out my tutorial on how to make a Christmas wreath. It’s easier than you think and you’ll save yourself a little money too. 🙂
