Have the kids help make adorable Rudolph-the-reindeer crafts to add pizzazz to holiday gifts! A little thumb dipped in green finger paint is perfect for making a little reindeer head. Keep in mind that the tip of the hot glue gun gets very hot, so an adult should help with that step.
Give away holiday gifts that are as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside! These sweet bows are easy to make, yet striking as decoration on Santa’s gifts. You can also have the children help make bows to hang up in the tree, or to put on gifts that they will be giving away.
Beautifully wrapped gifts under the tree are a wonderful way to decorate for the holiday season! A beautiful Christmas gift tag will also make the recipient extra curious about what’s inside. Tip: Use a tape runner with double-sided tape to wrap your parcels, for clean seams.
Oh no, are you running out of gift wrap? Don’t worry, we have the solution! Make a beautiful and festive collage out of the last few pieces on the roll. Think patchwork: assemble pieces from several different papers together into one big piece that will fit around a gift. Tip: It is easiest to use a hot glue gun to glue slightly heavier natural papers together. For thinner wrapping paper, double-sided tape is best and will result in clean seams.
Wrap beautiful, personalised gifts with your own printed Christmas gift wrap! Use naturally coloured wrapping paper as a base and then paint trees or other holiday designs here and there, using a stencil. You can also use a brush to spatter a few white snowflakes as a finishing touch. The entire gift will be a charming work of art and lovely decoration beneath the tree in the days leading up to Christmas.
Craft lovely Christmas crackers with the kids! Instead of classic tissue paper, you can use up the last scraps of wrapping paper. Fill your Christmas crackers with treats and use them to decorate the tree, or use them to wrap up little gifts for Christmas Eve.
Transform empty packaging into beautiful gift boxes! Look around your home for cardboard boxes that you can reuse instead of throwing away. We decorated one of our card craft tubes to look like an adorable Rudolph with a gift inside. So even when the contents run out, you can keep on crafting with the box!
*Spray outdoors or in a well ventilated space, for example in a workshop or garage.
Wrapping Christmas gifts is as fun as giving them away! At least if you get to make your own Christmas gift wrap. One of our favourite ideas is to have the kids wrap their gifts for their grandparents, or other family members or friends. It makes the gift that much more personal. Keep in mind that the tip of the hot glue gun gets very hot, so be careful.
It is always a joy to give away a beautifully wrapped Christmas gift! Gift boxes are especially luxurious and with a little creativity, you can make them beautiful and unique. We decorated each box in the same colour palette, but with different craft materials that are easy to mix and match. We recommend using a hot glue gun to glue on the decorations, which will get the job done quickly. Just remember that the tip gets very hot.
Personalise your holiday gifts with paper tape! Here, we have assembled a holiday tree with green tape in different shades. If you want to add even more pizzazz to your holiday gifts, you can also make a little garland of pennants to tie around the parcel. Tip: Use a tape runner with double-sided tape to wrap your parcels, for clean seams.
Decorate your tree and gifts with beautiful macramé stars! The macramé technique involves tying knots and braiding string in various combinations and patterns. Begin by attaching the yarn to the wooden ring with a lark's head knot. This will be the base of your star. When you are finished, secure the ends with Panokitt Quick glue. Macramé can be tricky at first, but once you've gotten the hang of it, it's hard to stop.
Impress your loved ones with creative and beautifully wrapped gifts! First, wrap a Christmas gift with the wrapping paper of your choice. Then weave ribbon into a checked pattern around the gift. To create contrast, use ribbon in various materials. Overlap the ends of the ribbon on the back of the gift and glue in place. Apply snow spray to the pine cones for a wintry, festive touch.
Give the coolest Christmas gifts of the year with Hama beads! Beading pegboards is a fun craft for all ages. Use a pegboard to make the beaded figures. In this example, we've made a polar bear and a reindeer. When you are satisfied, place ironing paper over the design and iron the beads together. Iron both sides to make sure the figure is extra durable. Decorate your parcels by attaching the figures with string.
Wrap festive gifts with pipe cleaners and decorations! Shape pipe cleaners into letters and glue them to parcels along with other decorations. A hot glue gun is helpful to use here. Then brush with Kids Quick Glue and sprinkle with glitter. Don't hold back on your decorations. The more, the better!
Put on your creativity cap and paint your own Christmas paper! In the example, we used: Hobbylack, a white Gelly roll pen and a Posca pen. Draw the designs free-hand or use templates. The ornaments are painted with Hobbylack and the strings are hand-drawn. We made the stars with a gingerbread biscuit cutter which we filled in with a pen.
