Craft Roundup: Repurposing Holiday Projects for Winter
Christmas is history. But festive trees, snowmen and snowflakes are easy to transform into fresh DIY creations for January and beyond! Try these four ideas.
For those of you who have a hard time saying goodbye to the holidays after New Year's Day, there's hope! And it's no further than your craft supply box. Luckily, many Christmas-themed projects can also do double duty as winter projects – from paper snowflakes to snowman greeting cards. This week's roundup features some blog projects that were originally designed for Christmas, but work really well for the first few snowy weeks of 2014.
While this sweet tree is shown with a decidedly December vibe, a swap for blues, whites and silvers can transform this fun project into something suitable for winter crafting. Check out the tutorial from Georgina Giles.
Who says this cute snowman has to be just for Christmas? Please Note shows you how to make this snowman-stamped card that works well into the beginnings of the new year.
Are your kids in the mood to make paper snowflakes, but you forgot how to make them? Fear not! Margot, aka The Impatient Crafter, takes you through the easy-to-pick-up process of making these winter classics.
Your mantle will look like your favorite snowy setting thanks to these colorful trees showcased over at Inspired by Charm. This project is great for the whole family, as the steps span ages and skill levels.
