I’ve rounded up some fun and easy DIY Christmas crafts that will spice up your home for the holidays and help to make it a little more festive. These DIY Christmas Crafts are not only quick and cute, they’re very inexpensive to make and can be done, for the most part, with craft supplies that you probably already have on hand.

What you need:

  1. Mason jar
  2. Fake snow
  3. Styrofoam balls
  4. Small twigs
  5. Sharpie
  6. Felt

To make the snowman start off by sticking two Styrofoam balls together and glue twigs to their sides for the illusion of its hands.  Now place felt at the top of the lid and stick the snowman on it. You can also draw some snowflakes on the back of the mason jar and then pour fake snow inside it. Now just put the lid back on and turn the mason jar upside down and you have your snow globe ready to be placed on the mantel.

What you need:

  1. Flat wood
  2. Chalkboard paint
  3. Tape
  4. Paint brush
  5. Chalk

Start off by taping the edges of the wood so that you have a clean line when you remove the tape. Paint the wood with two coats of chalkboard paint and let it dry overnight. Once it’s dry you can write whatever message you want on it. To give it a Christmas feel draw snowflakes on it. This is a fun way to add holiday cheer to your house and the best part is that you can change the message whenever you want to fit whatever time of the year it is.
