Here we go…this ornament craft uses candy, doesn’t get much easier! It would be cute on top of a gift too.

I love how simple this Christmas card is using your child’s hand print and craft eyes, really cute!

Perhaps you have been saving your wine corks, well here is a clever way to use them

Dress up those candles too! (

Anyway to use a pine cone is always fun to me!

Now just paint some wooden balls the colors of your holiday decor and write simple words, like joy, peace, and noel and use em as a centerpiece, nice.

Here is a clever santa ornament using popsicle sticks, easy and fun for kids!

Who doesn’t love bells? This craft involves paper or plastic cups, a bell hung with twine or string, and some tinsle. Makes a nice decoration too!

Bedazzle, a fun way to adorn a plain ornament!

It is always fun to work with edibles!

This garland is a lovely idea for the mantel.

Christmas crackers are always fun and kids like em!

Christmas tree scape with Santa of course,  could also use party hats for this one!

Get out the sponges and cut out Christmas shapes to make wrapping paper or just stamp away for fun!

I love when you can put egg cartons to good use!

It’s just a paper plate people, how easy is this?

I love this idea of a lighted garland for dark stairs, great idea for a party, cute!

Popsicle Christmas trees with whatever embellishments you have on hand.

These whimsical trees look like fun to make don’t they?

Another fun garland idea!

Kinda makes my hands hurt thinking about all the cutting here, but it sure looks cool!

Time to get crafty, have fun!
