10 Best Craft Blogs this Holiday Season

Full of Easy And Fun Christmas Craft Projects for all the family


One thing is for certain, christmas this year will be like no other christmas before. Whatever corona has in store for us (please not another lockdown!) creativity will get us through


I've handpicked the 10 best craft blogs from across the internet, to keep the whole family busy and creative this christmas


And here are 10 awesome project ideas to get you started


Mini Christmas Stockings

These cute christmas stockings are super easy to make, even if you're not an experienced sewer. A great fat quarter project


They can be used as a garland, as Polkadot Chair has done here


If you're feeling daring, and have plenty of fabric, these stocking make excellent DIY advent calenders


Or make a special pooch feel festive with their own doggy stocking, which is what I did.

If you're REALLY spoiling pooch, why not fill it with delicious homemade dog treats such as these by Wild Wild Whisk. Doggy delicious!

Laminated Photo Snow Globe Ornaments

How cute are these snow globe ornaments! I can't think of a better way to commemorate little one's christmases than with a yearly ornament

Family can treasure and enjoy these year after year- much better than a boring old christmas card!


Michelle at Crafty Morning has printable instructions and a video tutorial to follow along with on her website, along with plenty of other kids and holiday craft ideas, and tasty food recipes too

Paper Snowflakes

Christmas wouldn't be christmas for me as a kid without making paper snowflakes! Actually I still make them-there's something so exciting about unfolding the paper to reveal your design. It never gets old


Button Star Christmas Ornament

by Buggy And Buddy

These Button Ornaments definitely caught my eye as the perfect way to use the ever growing collection of odd and miss matched buttons that, like most crafters, I have (I'm sure they multiply on their own!)


As a former teacher, Chelsey's blog is chock full of activities and crafts to inspire creativity and self-confidence in children while promoting learning and fun.

With plenty of STEAM (STEM+Art) activities, free printables and more there's lots worth checking out, especially her Snow Dough recipe

Popsicle Stick Christmas Trees

by One Little Project

The name of this blog is spot on- these are indeed a little project! Super quick and easy to make!

The site also has a huge selection of colouring in pages to print off, as well as a section specifically for toddler crafts

Upcycled Packaging Gingerbread Garland

from Pillar Box Blue via Hometalk

I love a bit of upcycling and if you're anything like me you've got lots of boxes from online deliveries-perfect for making these little houses


Pillar Box Blue is the top upcycling blog in the UK-definitely worth checking out Claire's site for plenty for upcycling crafts


Christmas Tree Corner Bookmarks

from Easy Peasy and Fun

Another project from Easy Peasy and Fun, but I'm a total bookworm so just couldn't resist adding this bookmark project


How special to use when reading your kids favourite Christmas stories


Plastic Free Christmas Crackers

from Thoroughly Modern Grandma

A great name for a great blog!

And another fabulous upcycling project. Afterall, who needs the rubbish toys that you get in shop bought crackers that never get used again!



Pinecone Ornaments

from Handmade Charlotte

This is two activities in one. Get outside and enjoy the benefits of a walk in nature, get the kids collecting some pine cones, and then come home and make them into these cute ornaments, which can be reused year after year


Another of Charlotte's awesome projects is her Felt Advent Bauble Pouches

There are SO many amazing craft projects and blogs out there- it was really hard to narrow it down to just 10! Hopefully you enjoy the selection of projects, and you find the blogs useful all year round


I wanted to be sure to include upcycling projects, as we all work to reduce of use of single use plastics


Please please please share pics of your finished crafts here, or on social media @kate_frances_designs


I'd LOVE to see your finished crafts


Stay safe and enjoy a Creative Christmas!

love Kate xx
