I loved Christmas crafting, I would make homemade Christmas cards to give to my grandparents, Christmas ornaments to hang on our tree and even great (at least in my memory 😉 handmade gifts for other family members.

Christmas Ornaments Crafts

When it comes to Christmas crafting for kids (and kids at heart) not many things beat making a DIY Christmas ornament.

The memories of making it, the personal feel and the joy of watching it sit proudly on the X-mas tree.

Even more, you can even make it into a wonderful family tradition, crafting new ones each year and admiring ornaments from previous years.

As this is such a fun project to make, we have a whole section of Christmas Ornaments for kids and kids at heart to make.

Mini Yarn Hat OrnamentWe do want to spotlight a few of our favorite projects though – the mini yarn hats are really fun to make and look amazing hanging on branches of your tree.

Learn how to make mini yarn hats ornaments here.

Another wonderful X-mas project to make as a family is this fingerprint christmas tree ornament. Make a new one every year, it will be something you will cherish for years to come (great one to include your baby or toddler).

Christmas Tree Craft Ideas

Make a wonderful little Christmas tree! We have quite a few ideas, some to “replace” a tree (who are we kidding, it’s to add another tree, not replace one ;), some to just craft for the sake of crafting and others that can be used as garlands or ornaments.

We have some of our latest shown here, but you can also browse a larger list (as we do have a ton) of Christmas tree crafts here.

Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft

One of our favorite projects are these paper plate Christms trees. So fun to make and decorate. This particular one can be a great christmas craft for preschoolers, you will need to make the cone for the tree, but they will love decorating the tree.
