Coming up with homemade holiday craft ideas will not be as difficult as you may think. Holiday crafts for your table call for very little materials in the way of materials and are easy to complete in an hour or two. Once you’ve gotten the hang of what a centerpiece calls for, you will only need to add your own Christmas craft ideas to make your project unique and refreshing. Also, getting the children to make a holiday centerpiece is a great way to keep them busy while the Christmas dinner is being prepared. Our guide will get you started on the right path.

Personalize Your Holiday Table

Homemade holiday crafts are a great way to show Christmas spirit in a personal way. Making holiday crafts for your table that last all throughout the holiday season is a great way to bring a festive mood to your home. If you find that you are this year's Christmas host, turning to some homemade holiday craft ideas to ease the budget could be the best holiday decision you make.

Holiday Centerpieces

Holiday centerpieces can as varied as the people who make them. You can use almost anything from your local crafting store to design your own custom centerpiece. If you just aren’t sure where to start or what to use, you may find the Internet or some home interior magazines helpful for some starter ideas. If you're looking for something traditional, keep in mind a Christmas rule of thumb: green, red, silver, gold and pearl (and/or white) are the most common holiday colors. Letting them lead the way when you feel you are lost is a great way to get back on the right foot.

Simple Craft Ideas

Christmas craft ideas can be simple or complex, depending on your tastes. If you are planning a small, immediate gathering, you need only concentrate on simple homemade holiday craft ideas. Gathering a few red and green silver-lined ribbons in a decorative basket with some colored crafting pine cones thrown in will be more than enough to start Christmas dinner off the right way.

Other homemade holiday craft ideas involve safety scissors, construction paper, glue sticks, felt, pom poms and pipe cleaners. Kids love to make crafts, and engaging them with a little creative action can be a lifesaver during the bust holiday season. While they enjoy making decorative ornaments with the glue, paper and pine cones, you can take your time preparing the best Christmas feast ever for your family and loved ones. The best part is the kids will be fully entertained while you are putting the finishing touches on the holiday dinner! Rest assured that Christmas crafts don't have to be another reason to stress. Just gather some materials and let your inner artist shine.

About the author

My name is Stephanie and I am a mother of a daughter, Cali. She is almost 3 years old and I love her to pieces even when she makes my hair fall out from stress! HAHA. I love to read and write, cook, especially desserts and those hefty meals needed to fill the belly of my fiance. Not to mention the designing of meals and snacks my picky toddler likes to eat!


I grew up on a farm in Southern Illinois, therefore, I love animals and I currently own a 90 pound white boxer who is cuddly and clumsy. I have a large oscar fish named SpitFyre (from a book). I took an extra year of required english study, including journalism and creative writing. I'm also a published poet, 3 times over, since the age of 12 years old (said to write at 12th grade level while in 5th grade). I love to write because I have a talent for it. I won the state spelling be when I was in 5th grade and I have not stopped being fascinated with grammar and the world of writing ever since.
