Holiday Crafts

No matter what your level of crafting ability, you've probably worked on some type of holiday craft at some point in your life. With options ranging from tree toppers to Valentine's hearts, there's a holiday craft for all ages and abilities. This type of project is a staple in school art classes, and it's also popular with homemakers and families looking for an affordable and unique way to decorate.

These crafts may be as simple as a Thanksgiving turkey made from a tracing of your hand to an elaborate centerpiece for your holiday table. Christmas ornaments are another popular option, and these can be saved and reused year after year. The best part about holiday crafting is that it doesn't have to be expensive. Depending on your project, you can use almost any kind of material, including paper, glitter and fabric, or even natural items like pinecones, acorns, leaves and rocks.
