Here are 12 fun and festive Christmas paper crafts that you can make at home.
Ever since I was a child crafting has been one of the things I love most about Christmas. I love how, at this time of year, it seems perfectly acceptable to put down your work and make something decorative instead, 100% guilt free!
Paper crafts especially are wonderful because they use so few materials and are relatively easy making them suitable for everyone. They are also economical and environmentally friendly.
If you follow this blog, you might remember that last week when I shared our printable paper reindeer I promised I had a full ebook coming soon. Well, finally, here it is: 12 decorative Christmas paper crafts for you to make at home.
I’ve literally been working on this night and day for the past month (which is the reason why I’ve been so quiet on the blog). Truthfully I would have loved to include way more paper crafts than I have but if I did it would be Easter before I finished!
For the first week you can get the book at 20% off
A bit about the book
I love both Christmas and paper crafting so much that, this year, I decided to set myself a challenge. I decided to decorate an entire tree with paper craft ornaments. Everything that would normally be made of shop-bought plastic or manufactured materials I’ve made with paper. Of course, the tree itself is a shop-bought one made from manufactured plastic, but the decorations are all made from paper. There are 10 tree ornament templates in total and I’ve also included two extra decorations that you can put on the mantlepiece, or on the shelf if you don’t have a mantlepiece (we don’t in our house).
Although I’m specifically a kids craft blogger I believe that crafts are for everybody, kid or not. These paper crafts are best for ages 8 and up, adults included. Younger children could probably also make some of the easier crafts with a little bit of help. If you are working with 4-6 year olds you might find that these printable Christmas shapes are a better option for them.
What does the book include?
– 8 brand new paper craft ornament templates
– 3 paper craft decorations already in our shop
– Our popular mini paper angel ornaments (one of the most visited pages on the blog – ever!)
– Step-by-step photographs and instructions for every craft
– Printable templates for every craft
– Coloured construction paper, or coloured board in the case of the paper reindeer
– Glue stick
– String for hanging
– A butter knife and ruler for scoring the paper
– Sticky tape
– Kitchen skewer and scrap of recycled card for poking holes
There are a few crafts which need an additional item or two like a hot glue gun for the paper stars, pipe cleaners for the bows and beads for the paper baubles.
Do you think I managed to decorate a whole tree using just paper ornaments? I did! Here it is in all it’s glory…
