78 DIY Christmas Crafts 2020
These days, it’s easy to find just about any type of Christmas decoration at your local retailer, but it’s so much more fun to inject your personality and design style into your home. One of the best ways to do this is with Christmas crafts. You can create your own front door wreath to make a great first impression, organize decorations for your gifts, or even put together your own ornaments to showcase your tree. The options are endless if you’re just ready to get inspired and put your hot glue gun to work.
And because DIY means affordable, many Christmas crafts we suggest use common household items you already own. Everything from fabric scraps to basic cardboard boxes can become holiday decor pieces. Get inspired by this roundup of creative Christmas DIY projects, ranging from a striking garland card holder to a playful fabric wreath.

Pine cone wreath
Bring a bit of the outdoors to your front door. Start by arranging the pine cones in the shape you want. Then hot glue all the pine cones in the form of a wire wreath, starting with the main circle. Continue to glue the pine cones in the shape of a five-pointed star. You may need to use some wire and very hot glue to secure a few hard-to-line pine cone tips.

Woven Ribbon Gift Topper
Hone your old summer camp thong skills and get ready to create this creative ribbon gift. Here’s what you do: Start with 12 strands of ribbon. Lay half of them on top of a gift (alternating colors) and use double-sided tape to secure them to the bottom of the box, cutting off any excess. Go back to the top of the box, grab one of the remaining strands and weave it over and under each of the already tied ribbons. Repeat the process using the other five ribbons. So have fun watching your friends try to open it!

The most thoughtful gift – especially for someone who has just moved in – is to DIY an ornament that looks like their house. To make one, print out a photo of the house and cut it so that there is no extra paper around the edges. Outline the shape and cut out a thin piece of cardboard the same size, then attach the photo using double-sided tape. Add glue around the base of the house, on the roof and on the awnings, then sprinkle glitter or fake snow on top. Then you have a house for the holidays.
