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.
My first Christmas wreath
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.:)
7. Upcycled tin of Christmas cards
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.
8. Upcycled Christmas tea tin
Decorate an old tea tin with Christmas embellishments and fill it up with yummy cookies!
9. Decorated Christmas tree and canvas
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?
There you have it. 9 Christmas project ideas that are totally doable before Christmas. :)
