Over 100 DIY Christmas Craft Ideas For All Ages

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

With Christmas just around the corner and with so many kids already on school holidays, now is the perfect time to start thinking about some awesome Christmas craft projects that you can all get into. You all know that I just love Christmas time, so I couldn’t help myself and did lots of detective work again to find some beautiful Christmas displays to create, Christmas stockings to sew, Christmas tree ornaments and decorations to put together, handmade Christmas cards to make, lots of kids crafts you can do with your children and loads more. This post is chockablock full of fun activities, in fact, you will find over 100 Christmas craft projects in this post. Some are from me, and the rest are from talented artists from around the world who have shared their Christmas crafts on their own blogs. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I’ve enjoyed hunting all these down for you.

I found this beautiful Christmas Wreath that you can make from pretty standard materials that you can get from any craft store.
