The holiday season is a special time for many people. A time that brings families together, and a time of celebration. When creating your winter crafts, keep in mind the types of decorations and activities that are popular with this time of year. Here are a few helpful ides for your holiday creations:
Many families enjoy putting up a holiday tree, and look forward to decorating it together. Try offering unique ornaments that will help commemorate this holiday season for years to come. Since ornaments are something that can be passed down through a family, use coloring techniques for your particular medium that will help it keep from fading. That way future generations can enjoy that decoration just as much as the first.
What's cozier than curling up by a nice warm fire in your PJs in the winter time? If you excel in clothing or just want to give it a try, consider making soft, durable pajama sets or nightshirts. Winter-related designs such as snow, snowmen, candy cane, reindeer, polar bears, and so on can adorn your design in a very festive way.
Window decorations are often something you see in the winter time. Since most people are indoors where it's nice and warm, a glowing window light can be a beautiful contrast to the snow outside. While candles and tea lights can give a warm, soft glow, keep in mind that they're not always the safest solution. Think about creating a one-of-a-kind tea light container that will allow that light to shine through. Also consider non-flammable options such as LED lights.
Cider / Hot Chocolate & Mug Sets
A great way to warm up in the winter time is with a nice, hot mug of something delicious. Try your hand at creating your own cocoa mix that can be given as a gift. Or a pouch of spices you can drop into plain cider for easy spiced apple cider making. You can also paint or even create your own mugs to go with these.
