Kids Christmas Crafts

Wow, what an amazing weekend! I was featured on 4 blogs, had an on-camera interview for the local community tv station and with the help of my husband, got the outside of the Holiday Home done too! The Crafty Christmas Ornaments were featured on, Uncommon Design’s 12 Handmade Christmas Ornaments, Someday Crafts and on Coastal Charm’s Facebook page. My Easy DIY Christmas Tree was featured on Tatertots & Jello’s 20 Amazing Holiday Ideas. I am so flattered to be amongst so many great creative projects out there!

I am wrapping things up for the Holiday Home Tour, and when I say “wrapping” I literally mean “wrapping”. I found this cute printed wrapping paper at HomeSense that fits in with the bright green and red of our Traditional Family Theme. I love the dots and the chevron pattern and have used them throughout the house on various projects. I will post those soon. The kids and I wrapped paper towel rolls with the wrapping paper and tied a ribbon at each section. These crackers look fun and festive and will bring a nostalgic feeling to the space.

We used the same wrapping paper and wrapped up little boxes. I hot glued a piece of ribbon to the top and now have these cute little ornaments to add colour and pattern to the tree.The kids also helped me wrap up about a cajillion different size boxes to add some interest under the Christmas tree.

I also had the kids create these beautiful tags for the wrapped presents. I traced the shape of the tag on cardstock, the kids cut them out and painted on them. The homeowners 2 adorable kids, ages 3 and 6 stamped and dotted the tags in our theme colours. I punched a hole through the top and added a ribbon.

These tags were super fun for the kids and hardly cost anything to make. They would look great as Christmas tree ornaments as well.
