Christmas Crafts

Adorn your Christmas tree and home with some easy and best Christmas crafts this festive season. Enlisted below are some innovative Christmas DIY crafts to gift your loved ones.

#1. Peppermint Swirl with White and Red Paper Circles:

What you need: Red and white construction paper or cardstock, pencil, scissors, ice-pop stick, craft glue, red and white glitter glue, red ribbon.

Peppermint Swirl with White and Red Paper Circles

Make it: Draw and cut out four red and four white 21/20 circles from paper. Outline each with glitter glue and let dry. Overlap and glue each circle onto the next, alternating colours, to form a larger circle. Glue an ice-pop stick to the back of circles. To create a loop for hanging, cut a piece of ribbon, fold it in half, and glue the ends to the back of the lollipop. Cut another piece of ribbon and tie a bow around the stick.

#2.Folded Boughs:

What You'll Need: Double-sided scrapbook paper, stapler and scissors.

To Make: Stack four sheets of double-sided scrapbook paper and fold it in half lengthwise. Unfold and staple the stack along the crease, then refold. Position your paper so the folded edge is on the left. Cut through all eight layers from the bottom right corner to the top left corner to make a triangle. Starting from the bottom, make horizontal cuts into the right side of the triangle every 1 1/2 inches, making sure to leave 1/2 - 1 inch of space from the fold. Unfold. Working one layer of the time, fold down the top corner of each strip (you’ll create a mini folded triangle on each end). Once all the strips are folded, pull the layers apart so the tree stands on its own.

What you'll need: 3-inch circle template, coloured cardstock, pencil, scissors, 4x6-inch black-and-white photos, glue stick, decorative-edge scissors, 12- or 14-inch foam wreath form, crafts glue, jingle bells, ribbon, two T pins and family photographs.

Family Photo Wreath

Make it: Use circle template to cut circles from card stock; cut faces from black-and-white photos into slightly smaller circles. Use a glue stick to attach the photo cut-outs to card stock, then trim the card stock with decorative-edge scissors. Glue the photos to the surface of the Styrofoam wreath form with edges overlapping. Thread ribbon through jingle bells and tie bows. Glue the bells in between the photos as desired. Attach a loop of ribbon to the back of the wreath with T-pins and hang.

Enjoy Christmas season making these fun Christmas holiday crafts for your dear ones.
