You, however, might not be into this type of craft, so it might be time to get a little more creative and up to date and do some crafts that you'll really enjoy. Here are some ideas for fun Christmas crafts.
Make some of your very own stockings
When you buy some felt, you can make amazing, beautiful Christmas stockings that your whole family will love. Whether you're making them for decoration's sake or you want them to be functional, this is one of the best ways to make your Christmas decorations trendy and fun - and take control of the size of your stockings.
Most people use felt, and you can get it in many different colors, so if you're having a lime green and pink Christmas, you can make your stockings match. Consider felt lettering to add names, and don't forget all the other decorations you can add. This fun Christmas craft project can take a day, or it can take weeks, depending on what you're looking to make. Be creative and have fun and, if you're not sure how to do it, buy a kit.
Make your own tree topper
If you're tired of the same old angels and stars that you find in stores to top your tree, then it might be time to make your own tree topper. If it's a star you seek, exploring a craft store will help you to get some really great ideas, but you might find that a simple Styrofoam star form will be a great place to start. You can buy a ring to attach to the star so you can place the topper on the tree.
Start by spray painting the star, and then use sparkly decorations that come on push pins to make your special tree topper. You'll be happiest with your tree star if you stick with your chosen colors, but be sure to take your time with this fun Christmas craft so that you will have a star that makes you proud.
Make treat boxes to give as gifts
You might find that you have to give many little "hostess" and teacher gifts. Make it less expensive for yourself by making treat boxes that the recipients will love for years to come. Craft stores have the forms and even offer kits that you can use to get started, and they come in many different shapes and sizes for you to use.
Or, if you don't want to get specialized with shapes, consider getting plain boxes and decorating them. Many people choose to use the pre-made stickers that come in many different shapes and sizes and add paint, glitter and even stenciling for a fun Christmas craft that has personalized flair and that is inexpensive and meaningful.
Christmas crafts aren't just about being boring anymore. You will find that you can do many different kinds of crafts that take your home from "ho-hum" to trendy and fun. They don't cost much, they aren't hard, and they don't take long. If you're looking to remake your home and holiday decorating, then it might be time to let your creativity and handicraft skills flow.
