9 Christmas project ideas





Okay friends. I'm in full panic mode now. Other than the random Christmas tag I made a few weeks ago, I have done nothing for Christmas. Nothing. No cards, no gift bags, no decorated boxes. Which means people in my life will be getting New Year cards (if they are lucky) but my best bet would be Valentine's Day cards, I reckon. *LOL*

But wait. I'm pretty great at making quick projects [modesty is obviously not this girl's strong suit *winks*] and I do have at least 2 weekends to really get my act together. So I dug through my archives to seek some inspiration for projects...here are 8 Christmas project ideas. 


1. A Christmas wall hanging

An easy project using a CD case, washi tape, some diecuts and decorations from the previous year's Christmas cake.

2. A Christmas gift box

This was super quick to put together. Glitter cardstock and embellishments from the previous year's Christmas cake.

3. The five-minute Christmas card

A little residue mist on a watercolour card base, some twine, Golden gold mica flakes and embellishment from an old Christmas card.

4. A Christmas wreath

Nothing like adding cute embellishments to a wreath with a hot glue gun.

5. Gift-wrapped boxes

I kept to traditional Christmas colours and used the same gold painted chipboard to achieve cohesiveness among the trio of gift boxes....even though every one of them was filled with Toblerones....yum!

6. A holiday gift set

Wow. I wonder who received this set from me...*winks*
Repeated elements across the items keep them coordinated...give this to a special someone.:)

Apparently, I was so ahead of the game in the past that I could actually give cards away...haha!
Decorate an old tin box and fill it up with handmade Christmas cards and envelopes.

Not enough space to go all out in your Christmas decorations? How about a small decorated tree and canvas to add a festive cheer to a small nook?

Great ideas! I haven't done anything for Christmas yet either, which is totally unlike me. I need to get crackin' since I'll need to be getting gifts in the mail soon.

This is the time of year when I start to panic a little bit, too. Suddenly it goes from "there's plenty of time" to "I've completely run out of time", in the blink of an eye. Somehow we'll manage, though, right? Love all your holiday ideas and projects! Thanks for sharing!
