How to Make Holiday Crafts

Use appropriate colors

Stick to the theme of your holiday. Use greens and reds for the festive season and shades of orange for Halloween.

Make a wreath for Christmas

Twist a wire coat hanger into a ring. Decorate it with flowers and small leafy branches. Finish it off by spraying with snow in a can.

Carve pumpkins for Halloween

Trace a design on the pumpkin. Cut out a lid and remove the flesh. Carve out your design. Place a lit candle inside and replace the lid.

Make a 4th of July banner

Cut red, white, and blue craft paper into flag-shaped pieces. Lay them out, alternating between the three colors, then staple to a string.

Make waxed leaves for Thanksgiving

Melt paraffin wax in a small crock pot. Dip various fall leaves into the wax. Fresher leaves yield better results.

Craft Creepy Mummy Hands for Just $1

Halloween decorations! I can never decide which holiday is my favorite, but Halloween is definitely at the top. Like I've said before, I love decorating for it. This project is easy, scary, and will look amazing in your yard on Halloween. It just uses masking tape, a thick straw, and a glow stick. Since we give out glow sticks on Halloween, I already had these on hand, but otherwise, all of your materials are probably sitting in your home. We use the mummy hands on our front lawn, and they really look like they are popping out of the dirt! Step 1: Lay the Straw on Your Hand
