Make These 25 Cheap & Easy Christmas Crafts Now

Christmas time is busy enough without complicated crafts. That’s why I’m sharing these 25 cheap and easy Christmas crafts that you can make today!

Christmas time is my favorite time of year. No surprise there, it’s lots of people’s fav! But it can be busy and hectic too, right? I don’t know about you, but in order to enjoy the season, I don’t take on any complicated or expensive Christmas crafts these days. I learned that lesson the hard way. Just plain and simple, cheap and easy Christmas crafts for this girl!

Speaking of which…in case we haven’t met yet, I’m Shannon. I’m the creator, writer and editor of, a home and lifestyle company focused on cozy farmhouse style decorating, simple family food and all things HOME. I have three homeschooled teenagers and am married to my handy hubby and love of my life, Dean. We’ve been married for 22+ years & have always homeschooled our kids. I don’t teach them as much as I used to (online school and all that). But I still love having them home with me. Random facts about me. I:

  • used to be a graphic designer and worked in advertising for years
  • sold life insurance and mutual funds for about two years too
  • took one semester of computer programming that I was good at, but hated
  • would rather sit down and chat with you over a hot cup of coffee (or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day), but this written medium will have to do for now.

I’d love to learn more about you too. Please feel free to visit us on our Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram.
