I love to scour the web looking for unique crafts because like most of you, I just don’t have enough craft projects to do! Here are 10 Fabulously Interesting and Unique Christmas crafts that caught my eye.
Citrus Holiday Elf Stockings
These Elf Stockings from sew4home.com are inspired by the classic story, The Elves and the Shoemaker. Simply Enchanting!
Make Your Own Mistletoe Tutorial
I love Kacey at stayathomeartist.com‘s Mistletoe Tutorial. Kacey also has some very cool stuff in her etsy shop. Very nice, Kacey.
Tree Skirt Tutorial
What I really love about this tree skirt from Lorilyn at familyofcrums.blogspot.com is that it captures the spirit of Christmas, but it is not your typical red and green tree skirt. Quite lovely and sophisticated.
Easy Holiday Pillow
Amy guest blogs with a really great holiday pillow tutorial at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com. Thanks for the extreme easiness and cuteness of this pillow, Amy!
Christmas Stockings From Scraps
I love, love, love to find ways to use up my mountain of fabric scraps. This is the perfect opportunity to put them to good use by making a Christmas Stocking from Scraps by Maggie Makes.
Memory Keeping Ornament
I just fell in LOVE with this ornament idea from Destri at The Mother Huddle. What a wonderful way to keep and share all your favorite memories!
Mesh Christmas Wreath
Even though this is not a “needle” craft, I had to include this tutorial. This is for everyone who has ever said, “I know I can make that!” Now you can because Wren at Easy Breezy shows you how!
Denim Christmas Stocking
Angela, the Crafty Camper Girl shows you how to recycle those old jeans and create a country Denim Christmas Stocking that will be a big hit with all the cowboys and cowgirls on your list!
Little Birds Garland
The Little Birds Garland is by designer Lisa Jordan and the tutorial can be found at Stumbles and Stitches. I feel the need to get the book from which this pattern came. It is called Fa la la la Felt. (IMHO you can never, ever have too many crafting books.)
Christmas Heart Ornaments from Fabric Paper
Coming from a graphic arts background, I found this tutorial at Balzar Designs, from Lucy Edson, a mixed media artist and scrapbooker, particularly fascinating. The ornaments have a very natural and organic look to them. I also found the fact that you make your own paper quite intriguing.
Enjoy making these holiday crafts, Share with friends and don’t forget to let me know how yours turn out!
