Christmas is right around the corner, and it’s time to decorate your tree. Here are some easy crafts to help fill the blanks.

Temporary Tattoo Ornaments 


  • Temporary Tattoos 
  • Clear ornament

If you have trouble hand painting, you’re in luck. All you have to do is take a blank ornament and stick a temporary tattoo on it. Slowly peel it off and then you have your new ornament. Here is a link to a blog that can give you more information:

 Sequin Ornaments


  • Sequins
  • glue
  • styrofoam ball
  • dress (straight) pins
  • seed beads

For this craft, you can use pony beads, seed beads, and sequins. You want to start off by making sure you have a two-inch styrofoam ball. Then, you want to have some dressmaker pins by your side. Once you start making the ornaments they will become heavier. To get the beads on the dress pin put a seed bead pony bead on top of the dress pin. Then, you want to put the sequin on. It is good to have some of the dress pins ready to put in the styrofoam. There is going to be a line down the middle of the styrofoam ball. You want to follow the line by overlapping the sequins order/colors you want the ornament to be. Place it around the line until finished.

Confetti Ornaments


  • Confetti
  • Mod Podge
  • Tissue paper
  • Clear ornament

Confetti ornaments are fairly easy to make. Take some leftover tissue paper and place it on the outside of your clear ornament. Then, use Mod Podge to lock your work in place. 

Homemade Christmas Jewelry


  • Christmas Color Beads
  • String

This is a great plan for anyone with kids because it teaches you how to make some fun necklaces that your children can have a go at copying themselves. First, you want to make sure you have the Christmas colors you want. Then put one bead on after another you are going to want to have a Christmas charm. Like gingerbread, a snowman, etc. 

Christmas bracelets


  • String
  • Beads

This is the perfect gift for someone special! Follow these steps and you will make the perfect gift for a loved one.

First, you want to pick your colors. Then, you want to tie a knot at the bottom of your string. Next, start putting the beads on your string in a pattern you like. You are going to want to have a charm of their favorite Christmas design. Put that in the middle of your bracelet so it will look cute. Finally, finish your bracelet off with your last bead, tie it off with a knot, and put it in a box that your friend will love.
