Holiday DIY Crafts

Do you love the holidays? Whether you’re a crafty person or not, the holidays are the perfect time to create some art projects. Here are some fun holiday DIY crafts you can do on your own or with the family.

Cut-Out Tree Skirt

If you have a Christmas tree, who says you have to buy a skirt? In fact, this fun DIY task doesn’t even require you to sew. Buy some felt material from a craft store and draw a scalloped pattern on it. Then, just cut with scissors!

Simple Cookie Canister

Ever wonder what you could do with a Pringles can after the chips are gone? You can reuse the can by transforming it into a cookie canister. Wrap it in decorative paper and tie a ribbon to create the perfect cookie-can for upcoming holidays.

Candle Holder

Candles are the perfect accent piece at the table during the holidays. Buy a clear jar or candle holder and spruce it up with paint, stencils, and ribbon. Then, pick the perfect candle scent for the season.

Coffee Mixers

Spice up the mixing spoon but filling the spoon with chocolate, nuts, or crushed candy canes. It will give an instant holiday-themed flavor to your guests’ coffee.

The holidays are coming up soon, so get those craft supplies ready!
