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. This is my favourite shop to purchase excellent quality felt.
Let’s get crafting!
Easy Christmas Crafts
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. 🙂
If I had a cricut cutter, everybody on my Christmas list would be getting these as gift toppers.
I’ve also got a few sewing patterns, like a cute owl and an embroidered moth that would be perfect for turning into tree ornaments!
These would be a great project to do with the kiddos, they’d make a perfect gift for the grandparents eh?!
This tutorial also includes the little holly berry garland hanging on the mantle. If you need some wool felt, here’s where to get it!
Seriously how pretty is this?!
This tree skirt is actually a no-sew project, which is great for when you don’t feel like dragging your sewing machine out of storage and have your kids mess with the tension dials! Or is that just me? …
These are free printable cards with acts of kindness written out on the backs. I really love this idea.
8. Gift Toppers
Making gift toppers makes me feel like I’m channeling my inner Martha Stewart! So fancy!
These would be fantastic just hanging out on wide window sills.
10. Christmas Gnomes
Could you use one of these as an alternative to elf on a shelf? I think these are much cuter.
11. Felt Garland
This garland would be great for a doorway because it’s the same front and back. Also, felt. #hearteyes
12. Clay Ornaments
Basically the possibilities are endless when it comes to making clay ornaments. I had no idea how simple the process was!
This wrapping paper is a diy/printable combo. The trees get printed on the paper and then you add your own embellishments. Another great project for the kiddos on a snow day.
14. Glitter Acorns
So shimmery! So pretty! Gimme allll the glitter! (But not while the kids are around, never while the kids are around.)
I love that you could easily change these up day to day if you had a collection of little things to design the scenes with.
Filled with some Christmas goodies, these boxes would be fantastic for the kiddos to give their friends!
17. Be Merry Banner
Be merry. That’s an order. 😀

Oh the fun you could have with these!
Fashion yourself a classy Christmas outfit, or bedazzle it in gawdiness for the office ugly sweater party.
20. Envelope Liners
I love this idea because you can buy plain every-day envelopes in bulk and then only embellish the exact number you need for Christmas cards! It’s frugal and crafty!
Cross stitching on paper is super fun! These would be a great teacher gift!
Bonus 22. Colourful Quilted Ornament Coasters
This is my latest sewing project, made with non-traditional colours and shaped like a Christmas ball. What’s not to love?!
And that’s a wrap on this year’s easy Christmas craft round-up! I say that as if I plan to do it every year, haha. But maybe I should? Hmmmm…..
So which craft is your fave?
