Christmas Crafts

Crafts are always a fun way to explore your creativity and some excitement to the festivity. Usually summer is a great time to start working on Christmas crafts, as it is very warm to go outside. What's exciting about Christmas crafts is that it has become a part of family traditions during Christmas. It's all about getting together with your family


members, digging out for stuff you need to make the crafts from (most of which you can find in the house itself) and getting some ideas for making the crafts. Making Christmas crafts is an act of celebration itself and it adds variety and colors to your decorations!



You can make anything for Christmas crafts- cards, tree ornaments, Santa crafts, wreaths, Centerpieces, gift-wraps, Christmas tree, nativity related crafts, snowmen etc. We have some unique easy Christmas crafts that you can make this Christmas:

Santa Ivy Bowl Candy Jar for Christmas
Material needed: 4 inch ivy bowl, 4-inch clay pot, Model car paints (These paints are great for glass but they need turpentine for clean-up) in red, white, black and blue. You can also use glass paints, Acrylic paints (Red and white), Peach wrapped candies, Santa face painting pattern, and 1-1/2 inch wooden ball with a flat bottom.

Instructions
Paint the clay pot red and the rim white. Also paint wooden ball white. Now paint the ivy bowl mostly white and leave an opening in the front to paint on the face. For the pink nose and cheeks, you will have to mix white and a drop of red. For the eyes, mix white with a drop of blue. Don't paint the face skin tone; leave the glass transparent in this area so that you can see the peach candies on the inside. This would be a great gift for a kid or anyone on your gift list.
