Craft Roundup: Holiday Fun Projects

We’re almost at the halfway mark for this holiday month – so, luckily, that means we’ve still got time to make all sorts of holiday craft projects. This week, the Make It roundup steps it up with clever ideas that transform Peeps, the quintessential holiday marshmallow treat, and ever-handy duct tape into jolly decor. Dress up the tree with some “sensory ball” ornaments, too – and handmade soap that are perfect make-and-give projects for kids. These four bloggers are your guide. Time to get to work!

 

Peeps Christmas Wreath

Peeps are well-known for being a sugary snack that traditionally shows up in Easter baskets – though, these days, they cover just about every holiday. But: Would you craft with them? You definitely should, if Crafts ‘n Coffee has anything to say about it! Put these sweets to good use in a Christmas wreath after a child-approved decorating party.

 

Sensory Ball Ornaments

You’ve probably heard of the “sensory box” phenomenon, which involves putting fun, tactile stuff in a container for kids to explore. Pink and Green Mama carries this concept to globe-shaped, clear acrylic ornaments she grabbed at Michaels. Just look at all the seasonal surprises your child can spy in these fun-filled ornaments!

 

Handmade Gift Soaps for Kids

If you’re already collecting goodies to include in a stocking, these small, handmade gift soaps from Crafts Unleashed are a great idea. The glycerin doesn’t need to get too hot to melt, notes creator Susan of Crafterhours, make it way kid-friendly – and using a variety of molds offers oodles of creative options.

 

Duct Tape Garland

For the duct tape lovers in your home, put them to work whipping up a long chain of this festive garland, just like Mad in Crafts has made. Whether you go with traditional holiday colors or funky mustaches and zebra print (Duck Tape brand now makes tons of options), this decor is sure to be a holiday hit.
