Making 3D DIY Christmas cards is one of many Christmas tree crafts
Christmas is the perfect time for creating one of our handmade Christmas cards from the many Christmas card ideas we have for you to make. Children love making their very own Christmas cards for kids at school, friends or cousins.
At Christmas, it’s fun creating new Christmas tree crafts.
Every Christmas our neighbourhood houses are lit up with lots of twinkling colored lights and we love to stroll the nearby streets to view them.
Another highlight each year is placing colored fairy lights to twinkle on the Christmas tree.
My kids also love choosing where to place each of our homemade reindeer ornaments and special pine cone crafts to hang on the Christmas tree.
EASY CHRISTMAS CRAFTS
Every year, our family enjoys making different paper ornaments and particularly craft items to hang on our big Christmas tree. Last year we made a small but colorful origami Christmas tree to send to each of our to friends. Our friends loved them. We called it our “Origami Christmas”.
