Christmas is a hectic time with celebrations and wrapping presents. That doesn’t mean you can’t still have a cute and easy Christmas table setting for Christmas parties or Christmas day. If you are wrapping presents anyways might as well wrap the whole table too to make a pretty and easy Christmas table. This is fun for gift wrapping parties, cookie parties and parties with kids. This Christmas table setting was really easy to make and looks super cute. I added a bunch of bows in the middle for a table runner but you could add one bow in the middle and ribbon. This is a good use too of extra wrapping paper.

For the kids I have candy canes and for the adults I have dressed up wine bottles! These are fun for parties or to hand out to friends for gifts. You can’t go wrong with the gift of wine. I decorated little bottles but you can do the same thing for larger bottles of wine. Santa’s helpers might need a little wine around the holidays. You can serve these for holiday parties or bring them to a holiday party for a host gift. Make the Santa or reindeer wines.
What you need to make the reindeer:
I always want to hand out little gifts for the holidays. I’m not usually a candy cane person but you have to have a candy cane around Christmas! I found these Starburst candy canes and had to try them out. They are tasty and they look really cute as snowmen! Candy cane snowmen are even cuter than the candy cane reindeer. They are fun to hand out to friends or in kids classes. Dress them up with a little scarf or ear muffs! Some I made with faces, others without, either way I think they look adorable.
It is about that time to start decorating the Christmas tree. Officially in two days it is acceptable to get into the Christmas spirit, blast Christmas music and bring out all of the decorations. I started slightly early but I am just ready for Christmas time! It’s fun to decorate for and Christmas crafts are the best. These little diy mini wreath ornament were really easy to make. You can put them on the tree or make a mini wreath garland! I got all of the supplies from the dollar store.
I love giving gifts and receiving gifts for Christmas. It is always nice if the gifts have a personal touch or something handmade. Handmade gifts are great but they can be time consuming to make. You can add personal touches to gifts by wrapping them with some fun diy Christmas gift bags and tags. These cute ideas include snowflakes, reindeer, Santa and more of the Christmas classics! People will love to receive gifts with these cute wrappings. Here are some fun ideas from around the web!
I love winter time when it snows and the trees are covered with snow. It is the best and of course building snowmen! Last year we went up north to Flagstaff to the snow, I live in Phoenix and we have to drive a little bit to get to the snow. When we were there it snowed like crazy. My daughter absolutely loved the snow! We tried to build snowmen but we could not get the snow to roll into a big ball. I don’t know if my snowman building skills are rusty or if the snow was just too fresh. To celebrate winter coming I made some easy mini winter treats. Sort of a mini snow village with mini snowmen and winter trees. These winter treats turned out adorable. They were also incredibly tasty, Reese’s are my favorite. No baking involved here and really fun to make with kids.
Since it is November that means time to get ready for Christmas! Does everyone get ready in November or is it just me? Thanksgiving is fun but lets get real the decorations can’t compare to Christmas! Put on some Christmas music and start the Christmas decorating projects. This Christmas bow wreath is incredibly easy to make and looks really pretty. You can make it with any color of bows. Traditional red, green, or gold like I did. This wreath is on the small side, but you can make it even bigger and fuller. This one is just one row of bows. If you get a large bag of bows you can make two rows for a large wreath. The large bag of bows was $5 and I used a cake plate that I had for the base. Such an easy do it yourself project for Christmas. This would be a fun easy project to make with a group of friends.
Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming, I know him! I still love Santa and the magic that comes with Santa around Christmas. My daughter believes still and I will keep that going as long as I can. Santa brings presents so why not bring presents to others dressed up as Santa or bring some Santa “kisses”. This DIY Santa gift bags are perfect for school class gifts, gifts to friends or Christmas parties. You can get creative with what you put inside these cute gift bags! It doesn’t just have to be candy, although Hershey Kisses work well for the Santa kisses. I made easy Santa belts to go on the bags. You can use both the gift tag and Santa. You could also pick one or the other depending on your preference.
These mini stockings make for such an easy little garland. Make this easy Christmas stocking garland with a little easy shimmer added. You can also add little candy or surprises inside. This is an incredibly easy Christmas garlang to make and hang up on a mantle or the wall near a Christmas tree.
What you need:
twine or ribbon
glitter stickers (optional)
gold shred or candy to fill stockings
Thread the string onto the stockings. Spread them out slightly. Hang up the garland. Then add the glitter letters. You can spell out Christmas or Merry or have one letter for each stocking.
I know it is not quite Christmas yet…OK it’s not even Halloween but the craft stores have all of the Christmas fun out! I spend too much time in craft stores and have been brainwashed into getting ready for Christmas crazy early. I can’ help it though, I love Christmas! I saw some Santa hats and I thought they would be fun for a game, then I thought of this catch the snowballs in Santa hats Christmas game. It is really fun but be warned your kids will want to play it over and over again! Since we don’t get real snow this close enough for us. It is also a fun game to play inside when there is too much real snow and it is too cold to play outside.
