DIY Christmas Crafts

Have some fun making your own holiday decorations

There are nothing like DIY Christmas projects, such as homemade ornaments and decorations, to begin your Christmas reminiscing journey. Everyone has at least one homemade ornament on their tree, whether it's from Grandma or from a child who is now an adult.

Nowadays, Christmas crafts are so beautiful we display them with pride on the tree, on our tables, doors and mantelpieces for a month or two. Every year they get brought out to smiles and a flood of memories. These memories are what make Christmas special.

Not only are these items treasured, so are the memories of the time spent creating these wonderful masterpieces. Many people remember the time someone ate paste or had sparkles stuck to them for months. Remember the one "piece de resistance" that was smashed on the floor, while you excitedly showed it to someone. Remember how the house smelled like gingerbread cookies baking while you were creating those magical DIY Christmas projects?

Christmastime should be about spending time with the people you care about and doing those things you never seem to have time for during the year. We've taken some craft pointers from Santa's Elves and put together a long and growing list of do-it-yourself Christmas ornaments, wreaths, centerpieces and candles projects.

Some of the projects include:

These are pretty easy DIY Christmas projects, and please feel free to put your own decorative genius into their creation. If you have a favorite or just plain fantastic DIY Christmas ornament, please send it to us (with pictures, if you have them) and we will credit you for your creativity and post it on this site. All you have to do is email Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas!
