Christmas is only two weeks away! Can you believe that? I feel like just yesterday it was the fall and now in only a handful of days it will be Christmas!
One of my favorite parts of Christmas is making fun Christmas crafts!! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite festive arts and crafts to do around the holidays!
#1- DIY House
If you read this post I did a while back you probably know I love making these DIY dollhouses! They are so much fun! This one my mom actually purchased to make herself but gave it to me since she thought I would enjoy it more! <3 I haven’t finished it quite yet but I’m so close!
You can buy it here!
2- Crayon Ornaments
Credit for this goes to my mom! She found this idea somewhere and we all made this ornament together! Basically all you do, is shave a bunch of crayons until you have lots of tiny crayon pieces in your chosen colors. Then you put them inside the ornament and use a hairdryer to melt the crayons to the inside! It was such an easy project and turned out so well!
You can find a similar tutorial on how to do it here!
3- Paper Snowflakes
We’re not talking about any old paper snowflakes! Last year my mom (again! Wow I’m sensing a theme! It’s no wonder I’m talking about her so much, she is the creative craft queen in my family! <33) printed me and my siblings out some more complicated paper snowflake templates and we had SO much fun making them!! This year I found this 3D snowflakes tutorial and I’m super excited to try them out!
You can find the templates here!
4- Christmas Book Folding
This exact template isn’t available anymore but you can check out my favorite place to get templates here!!
5- Christmas Watercolor
I used to have a love/hate relationship wth watercolor. I LOVED how it looks when others did it but I never could seem to make mine look good which was so frustrating! Well recently I picked it up again and kind of shocked myself that it actually didn’t look terrible! And now I love it! It’s so fun! No, I’m not a professional (and no, it still doesn’t look like others gorgeous pieces) but hey, I have a blast doing it! This piece is supposed to be me and my dog, Riley! <3

I hope you can find some time this season to relax and do some arts and crafts! I know I will be! If you need some lovely Christmas music to listen to check out this Spotify playlist of some of my favorite Christmas songs!
