12 Winter Crafts to Get You in the Holiday Spirit
If you live here in Texas, you might be struggling to find the holiday spirit, what with the weather pinging back and forth between spring and fall every other day. Soon it’ll be consistently cold (supposedly), but until then, I’ve gathered up several creative winter crafts to jump start those holly jolly holiday feelings.
This adorable wreath is the perfect modern take on a traditional decoration. I think the stars and the tiny little windows are just dreamy, but the electric candles inside really score a perfect 10 on coziness.
We all tend to find ourselves buried in odds and ends of wrapping paper discards after a busy night of holiday prep. This clever little decoration reminds me of those late night gift wrapping battlefields, and I love the opportunity to turn scraps into decor.
You’ll never be gnome alone again when you make these new friends. As the saying goes, there is just no place like gnome. Especially when gnome is where the heart is. (Yes, I can keep going. No, I will not apologize.)
Truth be told, suspended paper decorations are one of my go-to favorites for ANY occasion. These paper stars are impressive and festive–but they are also highly customizable, so keep that in mind the next time you are wandering down the paper aisle of your favorite craft store.
If you live in North Texas, then you already know that this adorable craft might be the closest we get to snow. Then again, if you really live in North Texas, you have experienced at least one Snowmageddon and are fully aware that all (weather) things are possible. The snow is a gamble, but this tutorial is not. Treat yourself to a hardy, happy snowman without risking a full power grid shutdown, that’s what I always say.
This cozy little miniature snow-scape will have you singing “Dashing Throw the Snow” in no time. It’s the perfect winter weather scene to warm your heart and brighten your home. Bonus: it also acts as an excellent Texan souvenir for Feb 2021. Gift one to all your friends.

Have all these tutorials left your mantle out in the cold? Warm it up with this joyous little holiday banner! Create the perfect word art for your home, maybe even call in the kids and let them help you decorate it.
These DIY Christmas jars are adorable for decor, but they would also make a great packaging solution for so many cute little gifts. I’m thinking homemade vanilla or a delicious hot cooca stash. What about those cookies in a jar mixes, or, my favorite, a small rosemary tree or some planted herbs for a windowsill garden?
Who doesn’t love a good countdown?! This is a fun way to decorate the house and build anticipation without feeling like you need another advent calendar. Somehow we ended up with two this year, y’all. I don’t know why. So many little boxes to fill.
Have you stashed holiday cards of yesteryears, feeling bad to throw them away, but all the while wondering what purpose they will serve? Your moment of glory has arrived. Now you can build a Miniature Christmas Village! Or two! Or six! Build the entire metroplex! And then send me pics because I would love to see that.
Hoop there it is! (Sorry not sorry.) I think this craft is full of possibility, whether you want to personalize it with vinyl or just get stitchy with it, you can take this inspiration and run with it for a lovely little accent to add to your holiday home.
This soft, squishy, snowy wreath is like all my winter dreams wrapped up into one perfect little braid. I love those simple crafts that make a big impact, and this wreath feels like a quick, easy way to turn any home in to a winter wonderland.
Woohoo, winter craft vibes for the win!
