It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means it is time to get crafty! I love Christmas craft ideas because they add a personal touch to your home, they are fun to do with kids, and a lot of them make great gifts.  

These Christmas crafts are all done in just a couple of hours and are all budget friendly. A little paint, some creativity, and you’re ready to ring in the holiday season.

    I love just about anything to do with mason jars, so this adorable snowman had my heart from the beginning. You could use it as a candle holder, a decorative item, or fill him with candy and give as a gift.painted-1

    At a loss as to what to do with the influx of Christmas cards that suddenly appear in your mailbox? Here’s your solution! Merry Mail holder is nothing but a piece of flat wood and a few clothespins. Problem solved.painted-2


    Like I said, I love mason jars –and painted bright red makes them pop like Christmas lights. I love the burlap wrap to bring a little rustic look and the JOY letters are the perfect touch. Fill them with mistletoe and you’re done! painted-3

    These pinecones are one of the easiest statement pieces for an end table, centerpiece, or front porch. Simple, everyday snowcones spray painted to match your style. I love the red, but you could use blue, green, or keep it basic with silver and gold.

    The holidays mean getting together with family and friends, which usually means wine is involved. Put those bottles from Thanksgiving to good use and transform them into holiday décor.


    This Christmas craft is perfect for scrap wood that you might have lying around. A few angled cuts and a little paint create your own personal tree

    I love these ornaments because they combine a homemade element with a rustic cabin Christmas theme. They are easy enough to get all the kids involved and create a completely personal tree.

    You might put up a wreath, lights, or even a little garland outside, but what about your rug? How cute is this holiday rug that adds the perfect touch to your front porch.painted-8Etsy

    I love this pallet tree because it’s so versatile. It would make a great addition to the front porch, entry, or could actually serve as your Christmas tree if you don’t have room for a large Douglas Fir.


 No fireplace? No problem. This Christmas craft needs just a little paint, hooks, and you’re all ready for Santa’s visit.painted-10
