Online Finds: Recent Favorite Christmas Crafts

Arts & Crafts, DIY

For me, the holiday season officially started at the end of October this year when I played through my Christmas playlists for the first time. I’ve had Christmas on the brain since then, especially crafts, even if I haven’t exactly had ample crafting time.

That hasn’t stopped me from stealing a few minutes here and there to browse for inspiration. I meant to pick one favorite. But. You know what? I can’t pick one, so I’ll just share a bunch of my recent favorite Christmas crafts.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did!

Amber Kemp-Gerstel at Damask Love made holly berry twist ties:

The twist ties take just floral wire, green felt, red felt balls, glue and wire cutters. The perfect topper for a handmade gift and very, very pretty.

Dot Hutchison shared her SIL’s crafting success on Twitter:

The adorable Sesame Street Martian stockings were apparently crocheted, with a pattern found on Pinterest.

Menucha at Moms and Crafters crafted with felt as well, but she glued shapes on the outside of tea light holders for a mosaic look:

Here is an absolutely GORGEOUS arrangement of cascading bauble ornaments by Tanya at Dans le Lakehouse! And hanging sounds easy, too: tension rod and thread.

Claire Armstrong at Pillar Box Blue made mini wreaths made from acorn caps and felt balls.

Last but definitely not the least, Kara Whitten at Kailo Chic used paper mache cones to make ombre tiered trees with a gold accent:

Acrylic crafts paints in different colors and a gold pen are all you need. So, so beautiful!

Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
