9 Christmas Craft Ideas for Adults

Looking for some fun things to make this holiday season? I’ve rounded up 9 of my favorite Christmas craft ideas for adults from years past! There’s nothing like some hand crafted decorations to get you into the Christmas spirit.

It’s time for the holiday edition of the Thrifty Style Team! This month, we’re all sharing round ups of our Christmas ideas! You’re in for a real treat πŸ™‚ Thank you to our hostess, Julie from Redhead Can Decorate, for organizing this wonderful group of home decor bloggers. I’m so honored to have recently become a member of the team. You’ll find links to plenty of inspiring projects at the end of this post.

I made a paper bow out of wrapping paper. This project is both thrifty and a good way to use leftover scraps of paper that would otherwise be thrown in the trash.

These tiny Christmas Trees were made with Dollar Tree supplies. They would be great for a Christmas village or you could use them as place card holders on a holiday tablescape. I created a vignette with a framed vintage paint by numbers and two tiny deer figurines.

If you have some basic sewing skills, make an advent calendar out of drop cloth! I strung this up on a bulletin board in my daughter’s room. It will last for years to come!

I’m obsessed with my mason jar lid ornaments! These were so fun to make. Check out the other two styles that I made in this post.

My fabric poinsettia wreath is one of my all time favorite projects. I used mod podge to stiffen the fabric. I just love how it came together!

This twig star ornament was inspired by something I saw at Target. Of course, I made my own version for next to nothing!

Who doesn’t love a holiday thrift store makeover? I painted this holiday serving tray with chalkboard paint, then added stencils with removable chalk paint.

Here’s another craft made with twigs. My rustic log bundle ornament would make a sweet handmade gift.

Believe it or not, this pinecone tree is made from a wooden furniture leg! I was part of a challenge to create a Christmas craft with this up cycled piece. Check out the post to see what my blogger friends made with their wooden legs.

Now it’s time to check out MORE holiday craft and decorating ideas from the rest of the Thrifty Style Team. Enjoy!
