Here’s a selection of quick and easy Christmas craft ideas. I’m always keeping myself busy at home with Christmas crafts until the big guy (my best mate Santa) comes to visit. If you’ve of us this page then you’ve probably found one of our projects on Pinterest or Instagram so hopefully something else here catches your eye.
(Our snowmen decals have been created using snowman SVG files from design bundles )
As you all know there’s always a project on the go in our house, but now more than ever crafting has become super important. It’s a great way to pass the time. We dedicate a whole day to decorating gingerbread houses every year – each child gets their own house and a selection of sweets inside a personalised fillable bauble. Making the decorating day special in its own right with personalised items and a specially decorated table is perfect for a cosy winter afternoon .
Arlo will happily get involved with Christmas themed projects and all the time he is exploring, learning and expressing himself creatively. There’s so many Christmas craft projects for children to get involved with, all you have to do is think outside the box.
This Toddler Christmas apron is just perfect for Arlo to get involved in festive baking. He likes to scroll through loads of baking ideas with me and these days anything with Oreo’s or ginger bread is a win. His Apron hangs on the kitchen door and he puts in on whenever he’s ready to lend a helping hand. We have also made personalised aprons and accessories and put these with baked items to make gifts for loved ones
I also like using SVG files for paper crafts – cutting out these house on my cameo from white card stock using a design bundles template took seconds. The ideas continue to buzz around and so these paper cut houses became the inspiration for our first Christmas window of 2020 which was an important one as our rainbow attracted so much attention that we had to make sure passers by were amazed.
Paper craft hygge houses – I added battery powered candles to these and they glowed beautifully on our window sill. We make a huge deal out of our themes and love to create displays within our home, these are talking points for us, and our Christmas tree is always full of our quick and easy craft projects. There’s decorations made back in the early nineties which my mum made with me and has kept safely to be bought out year after year. The nostalgic feeling and recollection of memories is what makes Christmas crafting such a special experience.
If we’re going to be staying home it’s going to be as cosy as possible on these cold winter evenings. There isn’t a corner of our house which won’t be touched by Christmas. The pets get themed treats, the bedding and cushion covers in the lounge gets changed and festive crockery comes out too.
Hot chocolate station – the sign was cut from vinyl and applied to the glass of the frame directly with a contrasting green felt inside the frame for texture. I used the snowflakes from the same SVG file to add an extra touches to my jars and this is now our favourite place in the house. A station full of really quick and easy Christmas crafts as you can simply add to this one piece at a time.
Ever since we participated in “chase the rainbow” passers by have looked at our constantly changing window displays. We hope our Christmas window will brighten up the dullest of days for our neighbours.
We are also using our craft projects to keep in touch with our family. We’re always sending each other ideas, usually it’s a team effort and we all contribute. We like to share our ongoing projects with each other and get very competitive, but it’s also such a pleasure to be able to give someone a home made present.
Personalised Santa Sacks – Now more than ever when we have experienced being separated from our loved ones, little things like this really do help to spread joy and invoke the magic of Christmas. These Santa sacks are perfect to make for awkwardly shaped gifts kids often receive and with vinyl applied to fabric these are long lasting so can be bought out year after year.
The reindeer log slice decorations were created using Vinyl too.
I bought these log slices for crafts ages ago and finally I’ve found a project for them. The log slices were painted with a little acrylic. and the reindeer cut with adhesive vinyl before being varnished over. All of the projects pictured in this sponsored blog post have been created using resources from design bundles. Check out Santa hat SVG files for a bit of festive inspo.
These little bells are inspired by the Polar Express. As a family we visited a festive train ride experience and also enjoy the movie and so these are a great little touch. I used these one year with “name believes” to make place setting labels for our Christmas dinner table.
As we count down through December keep an eye out for more of our Christmas themed arts and craft projects and listen out for the sleigh bells too!
Let the countdown to Christmas commence with a one more sleep cushion. I’ve seen versions of these with little pockets for booklets and treats so they can be used like an advent calendar.
