15 DIY Christmas Cards Kids Can Make!
School is almost out for the holidays, and you know what that means! Marathon DIY Christmas Cards making sessions to make sure every teacher and friend receives just exactly the right card!
I keep trying to convince The Littlest Helper that production lines are a good thing – that nobody will mind if they have the same card as everyone else. But she is a tough sell…just like her mother (please don`t tell The Biggest Helper I admitted to that!)
Fortunately, our dear friend Pinterest has provided loads of inspiration for our DIY Christmas Cards this year. I am sharing our favorites here, and you can always visit our DIY Christmas Cards Kids Can Make Pinterest Board for more great ideas!
[Just jumping back in time to let you know you might also enjoy this new post with 10 More Christmas Cards Kids Can Make!]
Let`s start off with the ones we have made already! They are both super cute!
These little Potato Print DIY Snowman Cards from MollyMoo were the first ones The Littlest Helper tried, and they turned out incredibly well! I would have liked to use a more textured paper, but they are adorable just the same!
And this is the second one, and they still make me chuckle every time I walk by the stack of them! Inspired by Wise Design, these Reindeer in the Dark Christmas Cards are super quick and easy! All you need is some black card-stock and a package of googly eyes, plus a little red gem for Rudolph’s nose. I also lucked out and bought The Littlest Helper some metallic coloring pencils just the day before, so that made writing on the cards a piece of cake! White crayon would also work great!
We also gave these awesome little Pipe Cleaner Christmas Tree Cards from Crafty Morning a try. They were super simple and looked pretty cool, but ultimately The Littlest Helper and I agreed that they would look even more amazing with the thicker fuzzier pipe cleaners (which we couldn’t find at the nearby craft store – thank you Mr. Murphy!). We will most certainly be stocking up the next time we find them!
These Handmade Christmas Cards with DIY Glitter Tape are the little beauties we made up last year, thanks to the brilliant idea from The Artful Parent. They were a little finicky, but well worth the effort. The Littlest Helper absolutely loved making and giving them!
There is no link I can find for these, other than this Pinterest board, but I just love these Ribbon Christmas Tree Cards. I have been trying to get The Littlest Helper to make these ones for two years now, but she has her own ideas. In fact this year she said Why don`t you make them for your friends if you like them so much? The child is getting way too smart for me!
These DIY Christmas Button Wreath Cards from Hopeful Honey are really sweet. Though her tutorial involves a glue gun, you might want to try it with a good project glue and see if it will hold. Otherwise, you might have to just be a little more involved in this one to keep those little folk safe!
These sweet little DIY Felt Holiday Cards from LAX to YVR are a snap to make, and you can either draw your ornament free-hand , or use one of the many ornament templates out there.
These Washi Tape Ornament Christmas Cards from Fantastic Fun and Learning are not only pretty, but so easy for the kids to make!
It doesn’t get much simpler than these adorable DIY Glittery Holiday Cards from Rambling Brooke!
This is a really clever idea! Who knew a lint roller could be so useful in so many ways?! Handmade Charlotte shows how to use one to make these gorgeous Holiday Cards using DIY Stamps!
There is no tutorial for this merry little Santa Card over at Nothing Makes Me Happier, but all you need is some red card-stock, and a couple of shapes. You might want to pre-cut the shapes for them, or just see what their creative little minds come up with on their own!
These wonderful Fingerprint Christmas Cards from Hands On as we grow are incredibly versatile! Even the littlest toddler can easily do this, and older kids will also love getting those fingers gooey!
There are many different versions of the fingerprint light-string idea, but I really like this one from Beneath the Rowan Tree.
If you have a ribbon fanatic in your house (and no, I am not talking about you!) this will get you really excited! Mum in the Madhouse has a variety of Simple Ribbon Christmas Cards that your little people are going to flip over!
And last but not least, these absolutely adorable Snowman Christmas Cards from Nurture Store are quite irresistible! Another one that will work for every child no matter the age!
