Our Favorite DIY Christmas Craft Ideas
We’ve both admired large simple wood ornaments while shopping.
But the price tag?
Not so much.
These easy wood Christmas ornaments are easy to customize with different colors of stain and paint to coordinate with any color scheme you want.
We made an easy advent calendar using small pouches, tags, and stickers!
You can fill the pouches with anything you want from candy to gift cards to tiny toys.
Display the bags in a large basket or dough bowl.
Hang them wherever you’d like using clothes pins!
Whether you mix up the numbers or hang them in order, this easy Christmas project will be a family favorite.
Do you love the way large fluffy bows look during the holidays but struggle to make them on your own?
AnnMarie has the easiest way to make these bows!
Everyone will want your secret when they see them.
We love the look of these custom stockings from South House Designs!
But these pretty stockings don’t have names on them, so Anne made simple stocking tags using wood ornaments.
Wait until you see how fast they are to make!
Christmas trees have got to be one of our favorite ways to decorate for the holidays!
Choose any color you want to get the look perfect for your home.
Sometimes a more simple bow looks better when you decorate your home or wrap a package.
Or maybe you want to save some money and use less ribbon?
AnnMarie’s hack for making the perfect bow is great at Christmas or any time you want a simple bow!
Burlap is a great way to add great texture to your decorating.
Wait until you see how she attached it!
Give your Christmas display more visual interest by combining a variety of trees.
Pick a unifying color or color scheme for a cohesive look
Anne used the same kind of burlap for this DIY Christmas tree project but made it into fringe for a new look.
Did you know that you can twist paper and get a really unique fabric-like look?
We used patterned scrapbooking paper and colored cardstock to create twisted paper ornaments!
Did you see the secret to getting that fabric look?
Want the look of a collar for the base of your Christmas tree, but don’t want the look of galvanized steel?
Anne shares the easiest way to customize a tree collar to match your home’s decorating style!
We love sending and receiving Christmas cards!
But at the end of the holidays, we don’t want to throw away those cards with photos of our friends and family.
This easy Christmas card book gives you a way to save them and display them for years to come.
This easy chunky yarn Christmas tree project might be our favorite way to make trees to decorate for the holidays!
We both used three coordinating fibers to make them and absolutely love how they turned out.
These easy stamped wood ornaments are such an inexpensive way to decorate a “themed” Christmas tree!
Or mix them in with other ornaments.
Choose words that are meaningful for your family for a custom touch.
Want an easy wreath that makes a statement?
Give this easy hoop wreath project a try!
Choose the best color of yarn to make it pop on your front door.
You won’t believe what Anne used as the base for this pretty Christmas wreath!
