There are some wonderful homemade Christmas crafts you can make to decorate your home and give it a lovely festive feel
Not only can you personalize your Christmas crafts so you have unique ornaments around your home that reflect your own personality, but you can also save some money by making your own instead of buying expensive store-bought ornaments.
Homemade Christmas decorations are another great way to make a home more festive for the holidays, and you can share your homemade Christmas ideas and photos here
Below we list some quick and easy homemade Christmas craft ideas you can use to add your own individuality to the festive season that won't break the budget.
Cosmetic cotton circles can be the ideal thing for making a cotton snowman.
Your cosmetic cotton circle will form your snowman's face. When you're making a hat for your snowman to wear you can be creative here. You might want a festive red Santa hat or a traditional black top hat. If you're going to make several snowmen, then perhaps you can make some of each.
A cute homemade Christmas craft is a deer made from branches and a small log for its head, and a larger one for the body. You may have seen some of these at craft stores or Amish stores.
These wooden deer are so cute that some people leave them in their yard all year, depending on the size, and others set them around the house.A simple hammer and some nails, along with a walk through the woods is all that is needed, besides buttons for the eyes and nose and a few holes drilled to insert the branches for the legs, and the twigs for the antlers.
You can get as creative as you want with these wooden deer, because each one is different, depending on the logs and branches that you find.
At Christmas, many people will put a red bow around the neck and paint the nose red, of course. You may not want to do that if you intend to use it year round, though.
Another one of the neat homemade Christmas crafts is a take-off from the traditional gingerbread house.
You can use the larger pretzel sticks to make a log cabin. The small pretzel sticks can be used for window trimming, fences, chimneys and anything else that comes to mind.
You can use icing if you like, but some people use cheese spreads, to make edible homemade Christmas crafts, that can double as a gift or an edible centerpiece at a Christmas or New Year's party.
On the more savory, log cabin version of the gingerbread house, you can use things like olive slices, nuts, celery slices, onion or anything that would be edible and compliment as a snack for decorating the log cabin, instead of the candy that is used on a gingerbread houses.
Of course, a gingerbread house is always one of those homemade Christmas decorations that can be used the same way.
