With the Christmas around the corner, we all want to decorate our homes as much as possible. Christmas decorations include many things and handmade crafts are always one of those important things. Handmade crafts are an easy and inexpensive way of decorating your house during Christmas.
Moreover, doing them is really interesting and you can have much fun preparing them with your family. Also, you will save money by making homemade gifts, cards, and decorations. On the other hand, it is a great way to reduce stress because it is very relaxing and enjoyable to create. Below are some craft ideas for Christmas.
One of the best decoration ideas is to decorate your Christmas tree with elegant ornaments. You can use glittery red pompoms to decorate the tree. Make ornaments using aluminum pie plates. You can have a crescent moon and star cut-outs to further spice up the tree. Make a hole at the top of each cut-out to hang it to the tree using a silver thread. You can also use small nails to make indentations on the cut outs and enhance their look. Thermocol, which is a commonly used material, can be used to make stars as well. Then, paint them using glitter paint.
Also, you can make a homemade strawberry ornament. All you have to do is to take two walnuts and use craft paint to cover each nut completely with bright red paint. Let the paint to dry, then using a marker or fine point brush make small black dots all over walnut. After that, cut a four-point star from a 1.5-inch square of green felt. Glue a loop of craft ribbon to the top of walnut, then secure green felt star over the top of the walnut. This will make your tree look so festive.
Decorate your door with a cardboard wreath. Using cardboard cut from cardboard tubes/rolls, cut the card pieces down to similar size to form even, shorter circular shapes. Take the different circles made from the cardboard scraps and create a wreath circle on a flat surface. Shift the circles around until you’re satisfied with the design you’ve created. Then, glue each circle together until the entire wreath forms. When the glue dries, tie a bow from ribbon and glue to the top of the string where it has been knotted, to cover the knot. Know you are done and you can hang the wreath up.
