Whether you’re a crafting pro or novice, we have holiday craft ideas that you’ll enjoy. Read below to find out our top four holiday craft ideas. 

Paper Snowflakes

This time of year is perfect for turning your home into a winter wonderland. Paper snowflakes are the best craft to make to help you create a winter look in your home. You can hang your paper snowflakes from your ceiling or a doorway to make it look like it’s snowing. All you need are scissors and some string. Glitter up your snowflakes to help add some extra pizzazz!

DIY Gift Tags

Add a festive look to your holiday gift with a DIY gift tag. Make your own using good-quality paper, such as Hammermill® Premium Color Copy Cover 80 lb. printer paper. You can use a gift tag template, or you can draw and cut out your own designs. Once your gift tag is cut out and you’ve made a hole at the top, attach it to your gift with colorful ribbon or string.

Get creative with your gift tags and try cutting out snowmen or snowflake shapes. Make them sparkle by adding glitter. Get colorful and try painting borders and designs on your gift tags to help add an extra unique touch.

Need holiday gift tags in a hurry? We have gift tag templates that are easy to print and attach to your holiday gifts.

Holiday Cards

This holiday season, spread some cheer by making your own DIY holiday cards. DIY or handmade cards are more meaningful than sending your loved ones a store-bought card. Making your own cards is the perfect opportunity to get creative and show off your DIY skills.

You can create a traditional card by folding paper or cardstock in half. Decorate the front of your card with seasonal imagery or words that help represent the holidays. If you’re an artist and want to design your own card cover, simply scan your artwork to digitize it and add any text you want before you have your cards printed.

Fun DIY Holiday Decorations

DIY paper decorations are fun to make during the holidays, and they can help make your home cozier. The supplies you need are simple materials like paper, glue and string. Have the kids help make decorations to add a personal touch to your holiday decor.

Tree ornaments are easy to make with paper. You can fold them into fun shapes or origami to hang on a tree. Cut out swirls to add some movement, or glue some interesting materials like buttons to your paper ornament. The possibilities are endless!

Easily print and cut out our DIY holiday decoration templates to help you decorate for the season.

We hope these DIY paper craft ideas will help you and your family get together for some fun. We recommend using Hammermill® Premium Color Copy Cover 80 lb. printer paper for printing our DIY craft templates. Happy holidays from Hammermill!
