Looking for some Christmas craft ideas? Check out these amazing Christmas crafts, like tree skirts, snowmen and card displays.
I know a lot of people are believers in the whole “No Christmas until after Thanksgiving” thing, but I’m not one of them. As soon as mid-November hits I am in the holiday spirit. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Thanksgiving, but Christmas is my favorite. I haven’t started decorating yet, but I have gone shopping for a few supplies and will probably start my decorations this weekend. This also means that I am in full-on planning mode and visualizing what I want to do and planning my Christmas craft ideas.
The one thing I really need to make is a tree skirt. The past two years I’ve just wrapped a blanket around the bottom of the tree and called it good, but things would look much better with an actual skirt. I browsed a few stores for a skirt over the weekend but most of them look so old-lady and gaudy. I want something simple, yet festive, like this no-sew ruffled tree skirt from Thinking Closet. I will probably stick to green and red patterned fabric instead of burlap though since Jesse is allergic. I also really need a way to display all of my Christmas cards this year. I plan on doing another Christmas Card Exchange (email me if you want in!) and last year I was seriously lacking in a way to display the cards, I stuck a lot of them in our tree. Maybe I’ll do something like this from unOriginal Mom: I’m also kind of obsessed with these little fabric Christmas trees from Fynes Designs. They are too cute, plus I can use leftover fabric from my tree skirt. Nothing beats recycling! 😉While surfing Pinterest the other day I also found these awesome little snowman ornaments made from battery operated tea lights! They would look so cute hanging on the tree, or maybe on a wreath outside. (There was no link to an original source on Pinterest, anyone know who I should give credit to?) And since my walls in the living room are still pretty bare I’d love to hang some of these giant red snowflakes around the couch. (Again no original source on Pinterest). I really think they’ll look good against the light grey walls, once I actually finish painting the living room this week.Have you started thinking about what you want to do as far as Christmas decorations? Do you do the same thing every year, or do you mix it up and add new decor and projects every once in awhile?
