With Christmas just around the corner, people are looking for suggestions on Christmas crafts that they can make. Crafters love to share their knowledge on how they assemble the Christmas crafts, and Associated Content is a great website for how-to guides for Christmas crafts. Christmas crafts are a great way to recycle material and be creative about it. So without further ado, here is a list of some of the best Christmas crafts articles on Associated Content.
We will start out with the Christmas tree. Content Producer Lou Lou describes in his article, “Homemade Christmas Tree Ornaments” how to make two Christmas crafts. In the first Lou Lou explains how you can make holiday bow ornaments out of strips of construction paper. (These bows also work well on presents!) The second is how to make homemade cookie ornaments. The dough and salt recipe, preparations, and finishing touches are covered in detail.
