I’m trying to come up with a few awesome Christmas craft ideas. I know I’m doing Gingerbread houses with my little siblings, but I’ve been looking at pinterest for other ideas for myself or myself/DH.
So let’s share some of the best Christmas craft projects we’ve seen around the web or are going to attempt this year!

A friend of mine also did the suspended Christmas ornament tree…turned out awesome. Here are his real life photos of how it worked out…

I’m planning to make these pretzel log cabins, they look really cute & easier than a gingerbread house!

@Ms_Purple: Wow! I think your friend did a better job than the one I found. I’m impressed. I feel like that would be SO time consuming. It seems like something DH would love though.
@MabelleBliss: Wow. I love those! I wonder how much of a pain it would be to actually try and make it edible.

I didn’t take a pic of it but I made my centerpiece that’s on my table 2 years ago. It’s really pretty.

@Ms_Purple: I’ve seen that on pinterest and I love that tree! I’ve been dying to do it myself and forgo my traditional tree for a year.
@Mrs.LemonDrop: this was my mantel last year when it was in progress, I reused a whole bunch of wedding stuff and used leftovers (like the flowers and ribbon). I got all the ideas off of pinterest and like sites.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Wynn Las Vegas
I’ve made a few christmas ornament wreaths using a closet hanger – they look great but they are a bit of a pain in the ass, bc they pop off.
@Mrs.LemonDrop: LOVE that ornament xmas tree! So cool!

I actually had a ‘pinterest’ party this weekend so some girlfriends and I could make ornamnets….
Here is my tree with some of the ornaments we did this weekend –
top: glass bulb with our wedding invitation; I also did some with our last 2 years of Christmas photo-postcards. I think that will be neat to have every year. 🙂
2nd: Mason jar lids painted with chalkboard paint
3rd: My DH cut a couple logs into wood chips, we drilled holes to hang and used sharpies to decorate! These were a big hit and super easy!
4th: Burlap bulbs – burlap wrapped around styrofoam balls – looked way easier than it was, we quit after 3!
Last year I did stars made from twigs, as well as bulbs covered in old book pages. The pine cone ornaments were also DIY a couple years ago. Love them all. I plan to try and add a new DIY ornament every year – although I think I’m going to need a bigger tree soon!

@Josina: I love the idea of the ornaments with your wedding invite and old christmas cards! Such a good idea.
A couple years ago when I was super broke, I made DIY photo coasters for family. It was pretty easy even for a non-crafty person, and everyone LOVED them. It was super cheap and not horribly time-consuming.
