Christmas Tree Art

Have a merry Christmas with eye-catching wall art sporting rows of pieced fabrics that create an abstract tree. Sew a green fabric strip between two solid tan strips for each row, then join the rows to form the tree. Stretch the fabric over an artist's canvas, and it's ready to hang.

"NOEL" Letters

Put your button stash to good use as subtle tone-on-tone embellishments on chipboard letters that spell your holiday wishes. Cut a matching textured-cardstock shape for the front of each chipboard letter and adhere in place, then glue an assortment of white and ivory buttons to the bottom third of each letter.

Merry and Bright Sign

Spread festive holiday messages to the whole neighborhood with our cheery Christmas sign. To make your own version, paint a piece of plywood with a mixture of plaster of Paris, water, and red paint; add a happy sentiment using white chalk. Coat the sign in clear sealer to make it last year after year.

Christmas Scraps Wreath

Strips cut from leftover felt, dishcloths, or crafting remnants come together to create a colorful striped wreath. Overlap varying widths of fabric strips around a foam wreath form. Pin the ends to the back of the wreath. If desired, adorn with felt leaves and berries; hang from a ribbon.

Family Christmas Tree

Connect with your family heritage year after year during the holidays with our adorable Christmas tree. Cut out photocopies of old baby or childhood photos and back each photo with poster board or cardboard. Use Modge Podge to preserve the pictures, and arrange the finished products on the wall in a tree shape.

Merry and Bright Chalkboard

A framed chalkboard adds instant holiday spirit wherever you place it and is easily changeable from year to year. Here, we've placed it below the Christmas tree, but you can use it on your mantel, on the wall, or in the kitchen. Chalkboard paint and a pretty frame create this easy-to-make Christmas craft.
