Whether you just remembered Christmas is coming — or trimmed the tree back in October–you can never have too many Christmas decorations! And, never fear–there’s still plenty of time to make these short-and-sweet projects. Heat up some cocoa, crank up your favorite Christmas tunes, and deck the halls with these fun crafts!
Yarn Christmas Trees
Here’s a fun craft for kids — and a great use for extra bits of yarn. They don’t take long at all, and they look really pretty!
Pine Cone Christmas Trees
Just pom-poms + pinecones = cute holiday decor for kids. Choose colors that match your tree — or let kids pick their favorites.
Felt Christmas Tree
Cut a big tree out of felt. Felt sticks to itself, so kids can redecorate “their” tree all season long without worrying about breaking ornaments. Bringing it out every year is a sweet family tradition.
Starry Holiday Table Runner
With kraft paper and paint, make an easy holiday table runner and place cards. When the meal is over…turn it into wrapping paper and gift tags.
Tissue Paper Wreath
A great holiday party activity for kids — set out lots of tissue paper for scrunching and gluing. String a bunch on a garland, or hang them on the tree.
Easy Cookie Cutter Decorations
When you press cookie cutters into foam, they leave an impression kids can easily cut out (and practice fine motor skills). Use holiday shapes to make cute decor that goes almost anywhere. Decorate with buttons, glitter glue, or anything else you have lying around — especially googly eyes!
