Christmas Craft: Make Anything!

The Perfect Christmas Craft; Make Anything!

"I'm bored." No one wants to hear those words, but even fewer of us want to say them to ourselves. If you live in a place where the snow flies freely during the winter months, (or even if you don't), you may find yourself bored more than you would like. If you are bored or just looking for something new to do, here's an idea for the perfect Christmas craft: make anything!

The Perfect Christmas Craft; Make anything!?

That's right. Anything. For your perfect Christmas craft, make anything. All you have to do is create something that is an expression of who you are as a person, and what you have to share with the world. You can find a lot of craft ideas on the internet and at craft supplies stores to help you get started, but chances are you already have an idea in your head. Just to help you get started, here are a few suggestions.

Looking for a Christmas Craft? Make Soap!

For a Christmas Craft, Make Soap? Yes, soap. It's something that everyone uses and everyone needs, so why not make it something special instead of something ordinary? Most craft stores will have everything you need, from fragrances and glycerin to flower petals and glitter. Grab a how-to book (click here for directions) and go to work. It's easy and fun for everyone in your family!

Need Another Christmas Craft? Make Snowflakes.

Yes, those little paper snowflakes you used to make in elementary school are still fun to make. Are you looking for something to decorate your window frames; if so, this is the perfect Christmas craft, make snowflakes-lots of them!! Fold your computer paper into squares and grab some scissors. Start cutting triangles out and enjoy yourself. Unfold and tie together with a piece of white yarn and hang them in your window. It's easy, it's fun and it's festive.

A Down Home Christmas Craft? Make Lighted Potpourri Jars.

Looking for something simple to make your house feel more like home? Then for your Christmas craft, make lighted potpourri jars. All you need is a large clear glass jar, a short set of Christmas lights, and your favorite potpourri scent. Put everything in the jar (make sure you leave enough of the light cord out to be able to plug it in), cover the opening with a small doily or other porous cloth, and you're done!

A Romantic Christmas Craft? Make a Photo Frame.

Do you want something simple that says how important someone is to you? If you want to say "I love you" on a romantic Christmas Craft, make that special someone a picture frame. Craft stores carry blank frames, so you can decorate it any way you would like. Find your special someone's favorite phrases in magazine, small pictures of their favorite places, and place them on the frame. You can secure them with contact paper, or, if you're feeling ambitious, decoupage.

The Perfect Christmas Craft-Make Anything!

It doesn't matter what you make, just make something from the heart and it will mean the world to the person to whom you give it! Want more suggestions? Check here:
