Try Having Fun With It

When I first started making crafts, I did it out of fun and enjoyment. I made things I wanted to make and used materials I thought would work well.

Over time I began to feel burdened by all of the work. Keeping up with expectations to “be the most crafty”. I lost sight of why I loved crafting so much in the first place. The sense of freedom to create and have fun.

Instead of approaching the holiday/Christmas season feeling pressured to make things, try having fun with it instead! Chances are you will make much more impressive works of art this way.

If you have kids, get them involved in the crafts as well!

Have A Christmas Craft Night

Gather all of your scraps, paper, fabric, and glitter! Bring the family and make it special. Make some hot cocoa (or hot chocolate bombs) and start making whatever comes to mind.

It can be as simple as making paper ornaments or festive shirts with a Cricut Easy Press.

Pick Up A New Hobby!

I used to think that I wasn’t good at anything in particular. I never had a special skill or felt artistic. Then as I got older I decided to try a LOT of things.

I tried a ton of different craft hobbies until I found some that I really liked. Now I find myself in love with resin crafts and anything that has to do with Cricut.

Don’t Forget The Christmas Spirit

Whether you’re going to make Christmas crafts this year or not, I hope you can stay positive. Many people are going through tough times and definitely aren’t going to have the Christmas or holidays they hoped for.

Be sure to donate to charity if you have something to spare or pay it forward in other ways. There are so many less fortunate people out there.

Stay safe, happy, and healthy this holiday season. Also feel free to email any amazing crafts you come up with to [email protected] for chance to be featured!
