Christmas at Home Series- Get Crafty
Looking for some fun ways to spruce up your home for Christmas and keep the kids entertained?
The City of Greater Geelong has picked five craft ideas to make at home:
Egg carton reindeer
Make use of your old egg cartons and create your very own mini Rudolf! All you’ll need is an egg carton, paper, brown paint, googly eyes and a red pom pom for the nose. If you don’t have the googly eyes or pom pom, replace these with paint or paper. Read the tutorial and get started.
Alternative Christmas tree
Get creative this Christmas and make your own alternative tree! There are many ideas to get you inspired ranging from wall art and carefully arranged books through to fallen branches.
Old light globe ornament
Got some old light globes around the house? Spruce up your old globes with some glue, string, sparkles, paint and diamantes. There are many clever and creative ways to transform old light globes into beautiful decorations for your Christmas tree. Please note: This craft idea will need a bit of adult supervision.
A treat for the birds in your neighbourhood and fun for the whole family, this Christmas ornament is one that serves a few purposes. Using a few household pantry items, a cookie stencil and bird seed, it’s a relatively quick and easy activity.
Head outdoors and forage for twigs, pinecones and fallen leafy branches to make some Christmas ornaments that bring the outdoors in. With the right size twigs, you can easily make a star to hang on the Christmas tree, or by slicing and drying pieces of orange you can create a citrus-scented garland for your home. There are many more craft ideas using natural materials online.
