Christmas Crafts

As most people will tell you, one of the best things about the holiday season is spending time curled up in the house with loved ones. Though it’s tempting to rush out to finish the holiday shopping during any free moment you can find, don’t forget to set aside some time for some good old-fashioned R&R. While the snow is falling outside (or maybe just visions of snow, if you live in a warmer climate) and the fireplace is roaring, grab a hot cocoa, some sugar cookies, and your supplies and get to work creating some festive Christmas crafts. From mason jar candles and centerpieces to treat bags and cards, there’s something for every skill level—even a host of Christmas crafts for kids. And, if stringing Christmas lights on your roofline seems a little too complicated this year, DIY door décor will still give guests a warm holiday welcome.
