Craft Roundup: Deck the Halls with Holiday Projects

Create cookie holders out of coffee cans, festive gingham star garland, a yarn-wrapped cupcake ornament and Santa treat cups with the kids this season

It's officially December! So many holidays are on the horizon this month. How are you celebrating? Family projects can be a great way to get into the spirit. Take a look at this week's roundup to get inspired. If you've got a cookie exchange coming up, check out the nifty repurposed way to present them – or create a unique treat for your kid's holiday class party. We also found DIY ornaments and garland that are sure to look spiffy on your tree or decking any of the halls in your home, too!

 

Recycled Coffee/Cookie Cans

What a smart idea, Folgers: The iconic coffee brand shows you how to save an old plastic coffee container and turn it into a festive cookie holder. So smart.

 

Gingham Stars

Gingham is a favorite print of many holidays – I think that's why it's so popular! A Spoonful of Sugar takes you through a strand of garland they created for the holidays that you can make at home, too.

 

Yarn-Wrapped Cupcake Christmas Ornament

Not only do I want to make at least a baker's dozen of these lively cupcake ornaments; now I'm hungry now, too (thanks, Jennifer Perkins of Naughty Secretary Club).

 

Santa Treat Cups

Tonya Staab of Multiples and More always knows how to please when it comes to crafty toddlers, and these Santa snack cups don't disappoint. A cheery project your little crafters can help make for a holiday party or for their class.
