You’ll going to love these EASY Christmas crafts for adults! Get a variety of ideas to make during the holidays including gifts, decor, and more.
If the people in my life know one thing about me, it’s this – I love holiday crafting. Once the end of August rolls around, I’ve already been thinking about fall crafts for a few weeks.
On September 1st I finally feel it’s socially acceptable to break out the seasonal decor, and it just goes from there. I’m sure many of you can relate.
What I’ve noticed over the years, is that while crafts definitely get a lot of billing during Christmas, most of it surrounds kids crafts. And of course the littles like to craft for the holidays. I did too when I was young!
BUT adults love to make things too. It’s good for bringing out our inner child and balancing out horrible things in life like paying taxes and dental work.
As I’ve said many times before, Christmas is a time when you get to break out those supplies you don’t normally use (for me it’s glitter). It’s a great chance to try something new as well.
And that’s why I’m sharing these Christmas crafts for adults with you.
If you want to try a little something something during the holidays, you’ll want to grab an idea from this list. Not only are these fun crafts? They are also EASY! And if you choose to do any of them with the kids or as a family, that is perfectly fine.
They’re not JUST for adults. They’re for anyone!
Check out the list of Christmas craft ideas below and let me know what you think. There are a variety of items perfect for decor, gifting, and more. Choose your favorite(s) and leave me a comment!
PS – if there’s something you make each year that’s not on this list, I’d love to know. Also there are no ornaments on this list because they are all here. Enjoy!
