Well, today, I'm sharing some of that special decor from Christmases past for those friends who have never seen the collection before.
If this is a second (or goodness third!) viewing for you, I would like to say thank you for sticking with me for so long and let you know that I have included a new craft.
And I put it right up front so you can peek and go, but of course I would love you to stay! 😊
Without further ado, and in no particular order, here they are, 20 Easy Craft and Decor Ideas for Christmas!
To start, here's a new spin on an old favorite. A few years ago, I made these floral candle rings. This year, I layered them over evergreen rings for a brand new look. Very festive.
Another simple way to add some seasonal flair to your entryway is with a dollar store snowflake wreath. This one can be kept up throughout the snowy months, too.
Old puzzle pieces laying around? Whip up a few ornaments, gift tags or name cards with paint and glue.
My candy canes do double duty during the holidays...decor and snack! Yum.
Counting down? You could purchase a special treasure or whip up a DIY advent calendar garland out of inexpensive treat bags.
Or you could recycle this week's newspaper and stuff the cones full of treats! Bargain.
Counting down with an Elf on The Shelf instead? Well, the North Pole is cold. He may need a coat. Brrr.
I made it out of felt, because I used all of my yarn on these super sweet (and super easy) mini Christmas trees.
They look great next to my Merry Christmas sticker sign.
I have also made Christmas signs from old ceiling fan blades...
...holiday gift bags from the dollar store on a plywood boards...
...and on carved wooden boards from the craft store. I like signs.
And in the kitchen, an easy apple crisp. Ok, ok, my husband made it.
Lastly, there are the tours. Here is the Christmas tour from my first year of blogging. Lots of red.
This is my rustic style Christmas living room from last year. Less red.
And my bedroom dressed for the season. Almost no red.
I am also sharing a few crafty ideas that aren't really Christmas posts, but for some reason, rank high on the Christmas craft sites ~ like my infamous red hydrangea wreath.
My crocheted potholder garland can be displayed all year long as well, but during Christmas it invokes a toyland feel. Can you even stand the cuteness? I mean look at that pantsuit!
The same look can be achieved with actual Christmas potholders. So sweet.
Hey...you made it!!
That's all twenty crafty Christmas ideas.
And it's not even December yet!
