Get inspired to get creative with these quick and easy Christmas crafts project ideas.
What is it about the holiday season that brings out the desire to “make stuff”? Baking and crafting are at their peak during this time of year!
If you’re looking for some quick and easy Christmas crafts ideas to do on your own, with kids, or during a festive craft night with friends, here are some of my favorites.
Skill level varies a bit on each of these crafts, but they’re each something you can make with supplies you probably already have around the house. So, if you have an unexpected snow day, and need something to do, here are some ideas.
Quick and Easy Christmas Crafts to Make Right Now!
Scandinavian Felt Christmas Trees
Make these simple and minimalist felt Christmas trees. You can cut out the template by hand and hot glue together easily.
Santa Napkin Rings
Use toilet paper tubes to make these adorable Santa napkin rings! A perfect last minute craft for your holiday party or to give as a hostess gift!
Flannel Wrapped Christmas Trees
These flannel wrapped trees could be made with old shirts or leftover fabric scraps. I love their simplicity. They would look great in a mountain cabin or on your fireplace mantle!
Snowman Christmas Crackers
Store-bought Christmas crackers can be really expensive! Try making your own instead.
With nothing more than a few empty toilet paper tubes, and some dollar store treats, you can make these adorable snowman Christmas crackers.
Christmas Reed Diffusers
A great last minute gift to make for friends and family, these Christmas Reed diffusers are cute and will fill their house with fragrance!
A wreath form (you can get one at a dollar store) plus fabric scraps or fat quarters are all it takes to make a holiday statement for the front door. This rag wreath is the perfect last minute addition to your holiday decor. Or makes a great gift! (Hint: You can make it in any fabric colors, so make a wreath that is in their favorite colors to hang in their house!)
Wood Slice Ornaments
Using a Cricut machine makes these cute wood slice ornaments so much quicker to make! Apply the vinyl transfer and it looks like you’ve painted the design on yourself.
Gift Tags from Old Cards
If you hate throwing away all those pretty Christmas cards as much as I do, then this is the perfect project for you. Turn Christmas cards into pretty gift tags!
As you’re wrapping all of your creative Christmas gifts this year, you’ll have the perfect gift topper ready for each one.
Clip a few branches from the yard to make these adorable stick reindeer. They’re fun to make, and it is amazing how each one has its own unique character.
Make a herd to decorate your mantle, or give them as inexpensive (free, really) gifts.
Kids can make this fun Christmas garland using cookie cutters and shrink plastic. Perfect for decorating the mantle or adding to a Christmas tree!
Rudolph Wood Slice Ornament
A cute Christmas craft so easy that kids can make it. Family and friends will love hanging these Rudolph Ornaments on their tree. Makes cute gift toppers, too!
While you’ve got the clippers out for making reindeer, clip a few straight branches to make a rustic stick star.
Once you make the basic star, you can decorate it with greenery, a string of lights, ribbons, ornaments, or anything else you can think of to make something completely unique.
Folded Paper Stars or Snowflakes
And, while you’re making stick stars, why not stick with a theme? Learn how to make folded paper stars two different ways. Great for decorating the tree, making a garland, or hanging in the window.
I made several out of die-cut paper to create a snowflake look. (Though I have to tell you, these were really hard to fold. If you want to try this, practice several times with plain paper first, or you might just start to hate me.)
