I’ve got some fantastic modern DIY Christmas gift ideas for you today!
These are all kid-friendly to make (with supervision of course) but they don’t necessarily look kid-made. They’re modern and fun and beautiful, and there’s not a single piece of macaroni or a handprint to be found. lol .
Don’t get me wrong, I looove a good popsicle stick ornament or macaroni card but I’m guessing you’re here to find ideas your kids can make for their grandparents or their teachers or aunties, so you might want something a touch more sophisticated. I’m here to save the day!
I really wanted to find some DIY Christmas gift ideas that kids can make that the recipients will happily use or display because they are so beautiful! I would personally love to receive all the gift ideas listed here!
I’d estimate that the age range required for these DIY Christmas gifts is around 7-8 years old and up.
And of course, all of these projects require supervision and/or active help from an adult.
Some of these DIY gifts may look complex, but I really made an effort to find ideas that are genuinely kid-friendly, with a little guidance. So don’t judge the project by the photo alone, click through to find the instructions before you judge if the project is manageable for your child.
Also, don’t forget to check out DIY gift lists from years past, start with this post of 25 DIY Christmas Gifts for Friends, it’s the most popular. 😉 But if you scroll through the Christmas section of posts, you’ll find lots and lots of ideas for holiday diy’ing!
Ok, let’s get going with this list. I’m not going to ramble on because I have a zillion other Christmas things to do and I have approximately negative 7640 hours to get it all done. Am I the only one? (Send help?!) 😛
