How to Make Holiday Crafts

Use appropriate colors

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.
