Christmas Tree Crafts for Kids – Best Ideas to Make this Year!

What can I make with Christmas tree branches?

Christmas time is approaching and you know what’s the first thing most of us do once December (or even late November!) comes? Christmas tree hunting! Because can you ever decorate your home for Christmas without a Christmas tree? So you may have already found your Christmas tree and decorated it. But will you settle with just that? If you want to amp up your Christmas decor, then you can easily do so by cutting off some of the Christmas tree branches! Here are some ideas on what you can make with Christmas tree branches: 

  • Rustic displays. Get a mason jar or a recycled tin can and place some Christmas tree branches inside. Decorate your jars and voila, you have a rustic display for your home!
  • Wreaths. The most common use of Christmas tree branches is to weave them into a Christmas wreath. You can add ornaments, evergreen plants, maybe some ribbons and lights, and more Christmas-themed materials you can think of! 
  • Mini Christmas Trees. Why settle for one Christmas tree when you can have more? This is one DIY activity that your children can do! 
  • Glitter branches. Another great display idea that is shiny and decorative! 
  • Holiday centerpiece. Make your own centerpiece by using some of your Christmas tree branches along with some accents such as pine cones, berries, Christmas balls, and some Christmas lights! 
  • Gift toppers. Wrap your gift and before tying the bow, slip in a few Christmas tree branches which adds more details and Christmas-y vibe to your gifts!

What are some good Christmas crafts?

Once Thanksgiving is over, people are then usually on the hunt for Christmas decor and gift ideas. Others are already planning their Christmas activities and traditions. And if you have your own family and a mother of the house, you may be pressured with all of the mentioned things above. But do not worry because first of all, you do not need to go out and join the Christmas rush. You can make your own Christmas gifts and decor by hand which makes everything even more special! And no, it will not cost you a lot. You can easily make your Christmas crafts just with the things you have at home (or outside your home)! Here are some good Christmas crafts you can do:

  • Christmas wreath
  • Snow mason jar
  • Snowman decor
  • (Jingle) Bell ornaments
  • Christmas tree ornaments
  • DIY holiday photo frames
