Craft Roundup: Deck the Halls with December Fun Projects

Get in the Christmas holiday swing by making a cardboard box house, little glitter trees, DIY crayon ornaments and a mini pom-pom ribbon tree with the kids

While Thanksgiving is in just a couple days, I have a feeling many families who celebrate Christmas will be thinking about decorating their homes over the weekend. So this week's roundup shares a few ideas for some family hands-on fun to ensure your house will be ready for Dec. 1!

 

A Cardboard Box House

Here's a great way to recycle all the shipping boxes you might receive this holiday season. Why not turn one into a gingerbread house? Try out this tutorial from Say Yes to Hoboken.

 

Little Glitter Trees

The name of this project says it all! Have your budding artists create small trees to turn into a work of art with a bit of help from the Little Mudpies blog.

 

DIY Crayon Ornaments

Leftover crayons have all sorts of ways of being recycled, don't they? I love this approach to creating some unique ornaments by The Swell Life.

 

Mini Pom-Pom Ribbon Tree

While hot glue might be iffy for smaller hands, check out some of the fabric glues and other glue options available at the craft store to create this festive tree, the brainchild of Cherished Bliss.
