Get crafty this season and spread joy through your home!


‘Tis the season to be jolly…and crafty! There are so many ways you can spread good cheer throughout your home with adorable holiday décor that you can make yourself.  Spend a cold winter night curled up with some glitter and hot cocoa, make a girl’s night out of it, you can even turn it into a family affair!

Here are five easy, inexpensive crafts to brighten spirits all around this holiday season: 

Chalkboard Paint Décor via Better Homes and Gardens

In my humble opinion, chalkboard paint is one of the coolest things to ever hit the craft store. The newfound ability to take any surface and turn it into a chalkboard—what could be more fun than that?! This idea from Better Homes and Gardens, to use an old picture frame (gives it a rustic feel!) and write a festive phrase on it is the perfect way to infuse some holiday cheer into your living space.

Stemware Snow Globes via Family Chic

Making your own holiday snow globes is not only fun, but they may turn out even prettier than store-bought ones! All you need to purchase are bunch of cheap wine glasses, some cute plastic pieces (you can also use ones you have in the house already) and glitter!

Candy Cane Centerpiece via Discover SD

This is probably the easiest craft to make, and will pull together any table setting instantly. What a gorgeous and classy way to spruce up your dinner table!  Your holiday flower arrangement has never looked more festive.

Present Wreath via Woman’s Day

Forget the old pinecone or tinsel wreaths. This present wreath is so much more fun! It may take a little time to make, but the beautiful result is completely worth it. Bonus if you fill the boxes up with little gifts to be unwrapped Christmas morning!

Card Tree via C.R.A.F.T.

You know it’s the holiday season when the cards start pouring in—family members you speak to once a year, co-workers, your friends from high school, the works. This year, why not utilize all of those festive pictures to make something for your own home. All you need is some ribbon, festive duct tape, clips, and you’re done!
