When I think of holiday crafts, it brings me back to my elementary school, Girl Scout days where we hot-glued clothespins together to make reindeers and made Santa faces out of smashed up Coke cans. My mom was our Girl Scout leader and came up with the coolest crafts for us little girls.
Although I will always hold a special place in my heart for those crafts, my almost 30-year-old self prefers a little more grown-up look to my holiday tree. So, here are several adult-friendly easy holiday crafts...no Elmers glue required.
1. Swirly-paint glass ornaments
HERE and thought they were gorgeous. I actually purchased some craft paint and clear acrylic ornaments and am planning on attempting to make these this week.
2. Rhinestone Monogram Ornaments
I found this on The Creativity Exchange blog. You should check out her entire blog actually, Cyndy has gorgeous taste! All you need are plain ornament balls (Dollar Store ones would work just fine) and scrapbook crystal stickers, found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. It does not get easier than this folks!
3. Photo Ornaments
*Photo found on Pinterest, no source given.
Have enough ornaments but need other holiday decor ideas? What about...
4. DIY Burlap Stockings with Hanging Initials
Not only do I love the way these look, I also love how easily you could create more matching ones for future babies or son/daughter-in-laws. Instructions HERE. *Cindy from Cottage Instincts was the one who made these. I read her blog regularly and always leave feeling inspired and a bit jealous of her pretty home!
5. Dress up your dining chairs using kitchen towels, ribbon and ornaments.
LOVE easy crafts, especially when they can be done in the comfort on my great room in front of a fire on a cold, chilly day like today! -S
