homemade Christmas trees of all colours and sizes – tiny Christmas tree ornaments that one can hang on the big Christmas tree, table top Christmas trees, or larger Christmas trees:a twiggy tree branch spray painted in silver, gold, green or red (or all of those colours!) and stuck in a spray painted container that has spray painted pebbles overflowing in it and all around it – you could even make miniature “presents” – little boxes, and put a pebble in them to keep them heavy and help support the tree – the bottom pebbles in the container would not need to be in a “present” box as these bottom ones would not be seen – for that matter, you wouldn’t have to spray paint the bottom pebbles either
miniature “presents” that can be used as Christmas tree ornaments
spray painted pine cones with shiny or sparkly string attached so that the pine cones can be hung on a Christmas tree as Christmas tree ornaments
basic angel Christmas tree ornaments – use a ping pong ball or crumpled up newspaper for the head, attach a string for hanging the angel ornament, then cover with pretty white cloth (in which you’ve made a tiny hole to pass the string through) and secure at the “neck” with shiny or sparkly tinsel or string – use sparkly wool or other thread bunched up on the head, for hair, and paint or stick items onto to the head to create a face
Christmas pudding Christmas tree ornaments – a similar method to making the angel ornament, but you won’t need too much material as the pudding has no “body” – and use patterned material instead of white material
Christmas tree baubles – get creative – decorate ping pong balls, spray paint popcorn balls, scrap paper balls, paper mache balls, twist and turn plant or tree vines, or river reeds into balls, thread unusual items onto a string, roll it all up into a ball shape and spray paint it – items like old nuts, some kinds of sea shells, and some kinds of pasta shells can be easily threaded onto the string you are going to roll up into a ball – also use glitter, tinsel, and cellophane
tin foil (aluminum foil) Christmas tree ornaments – just scrunch and then squeeze and shape the tin foil into any shape you like eg balls or stars
homemade calendars – what better time to sell calendars than shortly before a new year?
homemade diary book covers
homemade Christmas crackersThese Christmas craft ideas to make money (or save money) should get you started on thinking of all sorts of other ideas too, and can keep you and your family busy being creative during the run up to Christmas.
