For many, Christmas is the time of year to spend quality time with family. Everyone puts things like work commitments, and household chores to one side for a while. It’s the perfect time to get stuck into some Christmas crafts. Crafting is a great way to get into the festive spirit. We have some easy Christmas crafts you can get started with, and the whole family can enjoy them. Get your art and craft supplies ready, and let's get started!

How to Make Christmas Crafts at Home

Before we dive right into the making, we need to make sure you have all the supplies. 

One thing you’ll be grateful for, is craft storage. A great option is the Ryman 3 Tier Storage Trolley (£27.99). This trolley comes with three sections to keep everything separate, and looking tidy. Within the trolley trays themselves you can be extra organised, and add some Osco Pen Pots (£4.99) to stop your colouring pens from rolling around. Bonus- this trolley can be personalised! Add your name to the trolley, or name the trays so everyone knows what goes where. The possibilities are endless, and this is something you definitely need.

Once you’ve got your storage sorted, you need to get the right craft tools! For all our Cricut lovers, make sure you’ve got the Basic Tool Set (£24.99) and appropriate card mat, such as the Cricut Joy Card Mat (£6.99). For any adults using a hobby knife (£5.99), you’ll also need a Ryman Cutting Mat (£9.99). Scissors are a must for crafting, and we have kids scissors available too!

Christmas Crafts for Kids

We have a great selection of Christmas crafts you and your little ones can try to really get them in the festive spirit.

Paper chains are a classic Christmas decoration, and they’re super easy to make! You don’t need scissors or paint, just some glue and Design by Violet Paper Chains (£1.29). Making paper chains is a calming craft. You can make them while listening to your favourite Christmas songs, or watching your favourite festive films. It’s an easy Christmas craft that kids can really get stuck into.

If your kids are more interested in painting, you need to try the Paint Your Own Christmas Decoration Set (£1.49). With three premade decorations, we’ve made it easy for you and the family to get stuck in, and start painting straight away. There are three different designs in the set, and each come with their own paint set and brushes. Make your tree extra special this year and decorate it with your own creations!

Christmas Crafts for Adults

Christmas crafts aren’t just for children, adults can get stuck in too!

Everyone loves sending and receiving Christmas cards, so why not make your own with a Cricut Machine? Using your favourite festive cardstock (£7.99), upload or create your Christmas design in Design Space and set your Cricut Machine to cut away! Making your own Christmas cards adds a much more personal touch, and everyone who receives one will appreciate it. 

Not only can you make cards with a Cricut Machine, you can make labels too! We know, this doesn’t sound as festive as the other crafts. Trust us though, labeling all of your Christmas jars and boxes is a lot of fun, and you’ll be super organised after. Using the Cricut Joy, Cricut Joy Smart Labels (£7.99), and Cricut Joy pens (£8.99) you can create fabulously festive labels for all of your presents, decoration boxes and snack jars. You’ll love it!
