The holiday season is almost upon us and we have a suggestion for you! We often go with the flow of our hectic schedules and end up not giving ourselves enough time to do the things that make us happy. With the coming holiday season, we urge you to get those creative juices flowing! We have a bunch of Christmas crafts ideas that you can make as a part of some quality me-time. Or better yet, make Christmas DIY gifts for your loved ones and spread the joy!
Here are some DIY Craft ideas if you want to give your loved ones special Christmas gifts!
1. A Floral Affair!
Gifting flowers is a cliche for a reason. Flowers are symbolic of affection in almost every culture all around the world. What will make it even more special is if these Christmas flowers were handmade! Consider using paper, tissues or plastic. If you really want to invest time into your Christmas gifts, make all your loved ones a crochet flower!
2. Greetings For The Season
A greeting card that is aesthetically pleasing and that carries a very personal note of affection is one of the most cherishable Christmas gifts ever. Take time to outline the design of the greeting card so it speaks to the receiving end in a heartfelt manner.
3. Christmas DIY Gift Box!
You have your presents ready, but you want to give it a personalized touch. What better way than to give it in a handmade box? You can play around with vividly coloured card papers and make a gift box as interesting as the gift itself!
4. Picture Frames/ Wall Hangings
These floral wall hangings are a distinct way to make a Christmas DIY present for your loved ones. Play around with paints, coloured paper, sequins and glitter to create wall hangings that your loved ones can look each time at and think of you!
We all have those people who like to curl up with a huge book on weekends instead of going out with people (and we love them nonetheless!). What better gift can you give these people than a pretty, handmade bookmark? They will appreciate your thoughtfulness each time they shut their book or reopen it!
6. Paper Mobiles
Paper Mobiles add a pop of colour to the environment. You could make flowers, snowflakes or stars out of paper. If you’re really into origami, go for complicated designs and spruce up a place!
7. Mason Jars
Now, this is a Christmas DIY present that everybody will love! Mason Jars- paint them, fill them with glitter or make a snowy mason jar to gift your loved ones this holiday season!
8. Let It Snow!
What screams Christmas better than waking up on snowy mornings to a bunch of presents? But alas, not all of us have the fortune of waking up to view a pristine, white world outside. For them, snowflakes are a distant dream or a vacation panorama. And that’s when making paper snowflakes come in handy. There are different ways to make one and they all have one thing in common: they all are insanely pretty to look at!
9. Snow Globes
How about you include both the jar and the snowflakes in your Christmas DIY present? No prizes for guessing that you’ll get a snow globe! Now, you don’t necessarily need to use a glass globe. Try using jars and unfunctional light bulbs: aesthetically classy and visually pleasing!
10. Christmas DIY with Yarn Balls!
Blow a balloon, dip some yarn in glue and wrap it all around the balloon. When the yarn dries up, just pop the balloon with a pin and you have yourself a pretty Christmas gift! Other than that, you can create tassles and pompoms out of yarn to decorate walls with.
Believe it or not, every human being has creative potential. It is like a muscle that needs to be worked. This holiday season, awaken the artistic side of you and have fun with these Christmas DIY ideas!
