5 Easy DIY Holiday Crafts For Kids

Cool Crafts + Where To Buy Supplies!

This holiday, Little Steps has gone wild for DIY festive fun! The team has been cruising the markets and craft stores, putting on the holiday tunes, and getting the kids involved in decorating the house. We have rounded up 5 amazing DIY videos we think you will love. Enjoy!

Why Little Steps Loves It:​

 

What Do You Need?

*  Distilled water

*  Empty plastic snow globes (or glass jars)

*  Glycerin

*  Festive figurines

*  Glitter of different colors

*  Hot glue gun

 

Steps:

1. Apply glue on the bottom of the figurines and stick them on the base of the snow globe

2. Make sure to hold for ~30 seconds for each to allow the glue to dry fully

3. Fill the globe with distilled water all the way to the top

4. Add in pinches of glitter. Finer glitter can be harder to see, so opt for bigger sizes!

5. Add in a dash of glycerin which acts as a thickening agent to avoid the glitter from falling too quickly

6. Put the base back on and make sure it’s properly secured

7. Give it a few little shakes and there you go - DIY Snow Globe sorted!

 

Who It's Perfect For:

 

What Do You Need?

*  Hessian fabric cut into small triangular shapes

*  Googly eyes

*  Brown rope

*  Red pom poms

*  Wooden clips

*  White glue

*  Scissors for cutting fabric

*  Gold spray paint to paint the wooden clips (optional)

 

Steps:

1. Apply white glue to the back on the googly eyes & red pom poms and stick them on the fabric

2. Wait for 30 seconds for the glue to dry

3. Attach the wooden clips to the top so they resemble the ears

4. Hang all your reindeers to the rope and there you have it - super cute, easy and festive rustic bunting!

 

 

What Else:​

 

What Do You Need?

*  Beer or wine bottles

*  Sparkly pipe cleaners

*  Red pom poms

*  Googly eyes

*  Hot glue gun

 

Steps:

1. To make your antlers - take half of a pipe cleaner and twist it into a V shape around a full one

2. Twist and tie your two antlers around the bottle.

3. Glue on the googly eyes and red pom poms with your hot glue gun. Make sure to hold for a few seconds for the glue to dry.

4. Works on both wine & beer bottles!

Additional Info:​

 

What Do You Need?

*  Brown wrapping paper

*  2-3 ink pads in different colors

*  Black marker

*  White glue

*  Red pom poms

 

Steps:

1. Press finger onto the ink pad

2. Place inked finger on the wrapping paper - do as many fingerprints as you want

3. A cute idea is to do one print for each family member!

4. Wait for the ink to dry for a few seconds then draw on the eyes & antlers with black marker

5. Apply white glue to the red pom pom and stick below the eyes so it looks like a nose

6. Ta-da! You’re done! Add more touches as you like - e.g. ribbons. We opted for a cute rope here.
