Easy Christmas Crafts for Snowy Days

by Alli

I’ve only had two white Christmases in my lifetime.  And I experienced them both when my family and I lived in Tulsa, OK.  Here in SC, we do get  a dusting of snow every year, sometimes up to 12+ inches and occasionally we’ll get a blizzard, but it’s usually in February.  No matter how deep the snow is, it causes our cities to shut down because we don’t have enough of the necessary equipment.  And most of us can’t drive in snow worth a cuss (that’s what grandpa used to say).  But that doesn’t stop me from creating easy Christmas crafts for snowy days.  I can wish, right?

I  may not get the chance to build many snowmen outside, but I can build one inside.  My Frosty, Frostina and little Frostette are a really cute snow family.  You can see how easily I made them here.

Speaking of snowmen, I also made a sweet snowman and snow-woman out of TP rolls.  TP roll crafts are my favorite!  You can find the easy tutorial here.

Yes, I do other winter crafts besides snow people.  Here are some cute ornaments I made with a cookie cutter, wide ribbon, and fiberfill.  Click here for the instructions.

How about mini Santa ornaments out of acorns?

When my daughter’s favorite pair of jeans wore out, I could tell she hated to part with them, so I made a no-sew denim stocking that we pull out every Christmas.  I can’t sew at all, so this one is super easy.

I can’t forget about my easy Reindeer Treat Bags or my Rudolf the Red-Nosed Candy Bark.

One More Thing

This is completely off subject, but the day after Thanksgiving, I received the sweetest comment on my blog from a guy who had used my Mom’s Deep Fried Turkey Rub recipe and he wrote to say how much his family enjoyed it and how good the turkey was. It made my day. So, if you’re frying a turkey on Christmas day, try this rub.  You won’t be disappointed. It works on baked turkeys, too.

If your kids are home for a snow day, try a few (or all) of my Easy Christmas Crafts for Snowy Days. Then post a photo on my Facebook page.  I’d love to see your creations.  Merry Christmas!!

I’m always looking for cute crafts to do for Christmas, especially during the cold days when we can’t really go outside to play in the yard. There are so many cute ideas here. I know my kids would love these ideas.

I lived in SC for a while and noticed one year how icy it was. I could share some snow with you because we got lots here! I love your creations with the snowmen. They look so easy. I am already thinking about that one that looks like a coffee creamer bottle. We always have a bunch in hand. And how awesome that this guy’s family used and love your recipe. Merry Christmas to you, too!

We don’t get snow in Florida but these look like fun. I bet my little ones would love to make some of these.

These are such fun crafts to decorate the house right now! It’s snowy and cold outside here, so I think I may tackle a few of these as soon as I refill my coffee.

Loving these craft ideas. We haven’t gotten any snow yet here! Which is a bit strange since we’re up here in Montreal!

I would be happy to send you some snow. Except this year. I think that this will be a white Christmas for us. We are in the snow belt so it us usually very white. Love all the cute crafts.

I really adore all the mini ornaments you have presented here. My girls love to craft and these looks like some things I could make with stuff we have around the house.

In New York we are starting not to have white Christmases as well… this year it is supposed to be 60 degrees (and 70 the day before); I am starting to think I live in Miami!

These are great craft ideas and work well in the classroom too – definitely pinning this 😀 Thanks!
