A Last Minute Look at Spectacular Holiday Crafting

I think that most of us still have our Christmas tree up today, right? Maybe you just love Christmas and holiday decorating and you’re looking for one last project. Maybe you’re like me and trying to stretch the celebration for all twelve days of Christmas. If you’re a Mom you might not have had time to think about fun Christmas crafting until now. Whatever the reason, you need one last hurrah at the craft store!
 
Check out the great holiday ornament crafts shown (and more!) at the links below.
 

 
 

  • Every summer we collect shells at the beach, but it’s hard to find ways to display them. You could put them on the Christmas tree. Kelley at Coastal Kelder can show you how she used oyster shells to make golden ornaments for her tree. While you’re there…I just love the worn, antigue look of mercury glass ornaments. Kelley has instruction to make your own faux mercury glass balls.

  • Susan at Organized 31 shows us her personalised glass Christmas tree balls that she made with a box of ornaments and markers. Check out the links at the bottom of her posts for some more unique ideas.
  •  

  • This might be my favourite, because I love pompoms. Check out Kara’s snowman ornament made with glass balls and pompoms at The Joys of Boys.
  •  

  • Stacy at Six Dollar Family had a “brilliant” idea and decorated light bulbs with pom poms. I love the Grinchy green and red colors.
  •  

  • Angie writes at The Country Chic Cottage and she shares how to make plaid and burlap balls for the tree. They look so warm and rustic!
  •  

  • If you have pretty paper that you want to save from your gifts check out Ann’s decoupage balls at Ann’s Entitled Life. She also has instructions for a personalised ornament for your pet.
  •  

  • Make ornaments from real eggs with this tutorial by Tshanina at Thrifty T’s Treasures. This classy, vintage idea is not just for Christmas. You could easily revisit this craft at Easter, too.
  •  

  • Giustina directed me to a search for ornaments on her site, Domestically Blissful, and that’s what I’m going to do, too, because you really need to see it all! Her designs are elegant and understated, but still doable by everyone. I was so inspired and you will be, too.

  • Trish, at Uncommon Designs, shares how to make this durable indoor/outdoor festive initial.
