The holidays are the craftiest time of the year! Today, I want to share a fresh round-up of Christmas crafts ideas for adults (and some for kids!). I’ve teamed up with my favorite craft blogger friends for our first annual Holiday Showcase! This collective list of Christmas craft ideas will have you personalizing your home decor this Christmas and stepping up your handmade gift game this holiday season.
Christmas Craft Ideas for Adults
The best part is that all these craft files are currently free for you to enjoy, and the step-by-step craft tutorials will help you get off to the right start for your Christmas makes!
Paper Poinsettia Flower Arrangement
For our first Christmas craft ideas for adults, let’s start with decor because we all love a handmade craft to deck the halls! Everyone needs a table centerpiece. To craft your own, learn to make these beautiful paper poinsettia flowers and add them to an arrangement for your table decor.

Hanukkah Earrings with Cricut
I love a handmade piece of jewelry. With this tutorial, you can create handmade leather earrings for Hanukkah this year. These earrings are a great project to create as a personal accessory or gift to a friend!

Gift Tag Cricut Stickers with Cricut
Your Cricut can not only help with gifts and decor but all the little details too! Every gift needs a tag, so why not make them yourself using the Print Then Cut process? Making your own sticker gift tags will help you save money and allow you to personalize them further than store-bought options.

Christmas Village Advent Calendar
I’m always amazed at the many ways Christmas advent calendars come to life! One of my favorites is definitely this Christmas village advent which also serves as a beautiful holiday display. Once this beautiful advent craft has been made, you can use it year after year!

Christmas signs are a super-easy way to put your vinyl to good use during the holiday season. Use signs to customize the decorative details around your home (they also make fabulous gifts!).

Hand Lettered Holiday Cards
I am not a gal that can hand-letter to save my life. I think those who can accomplish a hand-lettering project are crafty heroes! If that’s you, then you will love these hand-lettered Christmas cards!

Flocked HTV Christmas Pillows
Christmas pillows are a must-have in my home during the holiday season, but they can also be expensive. So why not make your own with these flocked heat transfer vinyl Christmas pillows?
Christmas Holly Wreath
Your Christmas home decor isn’t complete without a wreath! I love making wreaths from paper since they can be reused year after year. If you own a cutting machine such as Cricut, then this Christmas DIY will be perfect for a fun crafter-noon!

You may have heard of explosion boxes before, but how about explosion cards?! Learn how easy it is to DIY a Christmas explosion card with your Cricut.

Christmas Explosion Box
Why not add an explosion gift box to that explosion card and really surprise your recipient? I adore this paper explosion gift box because of how many little treasures can be tucked inside, which are sure to be kept for years to come.
Scrapbooking Christmas Cards
My family always receives lots of cards at Christmastime but rarely do I organize the cards so that I can enjoy them in the future. This scrapbooking Christmas card project will keep you organized while displaying the cards you receive!
