The Christmas season is here and that means it’s time to ramp up the crafting! Christmas crafting is serious business. And I always seem to go from “I have loads of time to make all the gifts and decor” to “holy crap what was I thinking?!” in the span of about 12 hours on December 1. So this year I’m a couple of weeks ahead of myself with this round up of 21 easy Christmas crafts! Heck I probably still have time to do all 21 crafts, make 14 gifts and send 48 hand-written cards out in time. Right? 😛

This round-up of 21 easy Christmas crafts will be a great reference for when you need some quick inspiration. So make sure you pin it to your ‘Christmas Ideas’ board so you can find it again in a hurry!

Every year I try to add at least one homemade Christmas decor piece to our collection. Last year I made a tree skirt (after Christmas when the fabric went on sale, lol!) and this year I made this cute Be Merry banner, it’s #17 on this list. 😉

There are a few crafts here that require wool felt as a material. I get a lot of people asking me where I purchase my felt since it’s typically not available in craft stores. The answer is that I also run a wool felt supply shop! I wear many hats. Check it out at www.wildflowerfeltdesigns.com .

Let’s get crafting!

1. Christmas Ornaments

These embroidery hoop ornaments would be so quick to whip up. They’d be extra cute with a word like ‘peace’ or ‘joy’ embroidered on them! This post actually has 3 different ornament tutorials in it, I just liked the hoops the best. 🙂
