Wood Christmas Crafts

I’m sure a lot of you have heard of the German Christmas markets, or “weihnachtsmarkt.” I’ve never been, but I know people that have. Apparently these Christmas markets are pretty cool, featuring handicrafts, eats and pastries, and mulled wine.

Where do I sign up?

But seriously, I want to visit one of these markets eventually. I love unique decor and eats during the holidays, so I think there would be some good loot for me!

Specifically what I’d be shopping for are the wood Christmas crafts. I absolutely LOVE handmade wooden items for Christmas: ornaments, tree decor, advent calendars, wall art, candle holders . . . I want it all.

I decided to put together a list of awesome crafts inspired by the Deutsch market and my love of all things wood during the holidays.

You need to head to the craft store (or Dollar Tree, or Goodwill, or Home Depot) and grab some wood surfaces. Along with one of these ideas, you’ll make some holiday magic.

Grab this list of wood Christmas crafts below and let me know what you think in the comments (and which projects you’d like to try). Happy holidays!
