Day 1 — Knitted Mittens
Cookie cutters and MagiKote are the secrets to creating these adorable winter mittens from Styrofoam. Make several sets in different colors to hang from your tree or mantel.
Day 2 — Bottle Cap Snowman
Nothing says winter more than a fun snowman. Use three bottle caps for adult snowpeople and two for kids. Make one for each family member using simple techniques and Gloss Enamels.
Day 3 — Family Photo Ornament
Make the perfect gift for relatives with a unique photo ornament you can create with your kids. A simple design and easy-to-follow instructions allow you to easily make a lot for gifts.
Day 4 — Snow Time Penguin
Using Gloss Enamels and a stencil, you can quickly create this charming penguin friend on a clear glass ornament. He looks especially cute when standing on a pile of "snow".
Day 5 — Felt Reindeer
Ink Effects and felt go perfectly together. This reindeer design can be used with other items too, like pillows or napkins. If you can paint in a coloring book, you can have success with Ink Effects!
Day 6 — Terracotta Snowman and Reindeer
The kids will enjoy this fun craft that is easy to paint. Mini terracotta pots and Patio Paint create fun snowmen and reindeer, and easy accents give them personality.
Day 7 — Frosted Tree Ornament
This clear tree design is achieved by using contact paper as a reverse stencil. Frost Gloss Enamels sponged on top makes this a quick but elegant ornament to create.
Day 8 — Scandinavian Star
A papier mâché star gets a lot of character from scrapbook papers adhered with DecouPage. Finished off with a button, it adds a perfect touch of Scandinavian décor to any tree.
Day 9 — Dimensional Snowflake Ornament
Dimensional Effects and a foam stamp work together to create this glittery ornament. Learn tips for working with Dimensional Effects to create even more designs.
Day 10 — Glittery Light Bulbs
Wooden light bulb cut-outs sparkle with the addition of Craft Twinkles. Use a few of these classic bulb shapes as an accent or string a lot of them together to make a glittery garland.
Day 11 — Metallic Snowflake
Dazzling Metallics work perfectly on bisque ornaments. The reflection from the metallic paint glints off the textured surface, making the design change as it twists in the light.
Day 12 — Snowflake Ornament
It wouldn't be Christmas crafting without snow. Use Snow-Tex to easily achieve realistic snow texture on plain, wooden snowflake shapes for dimensional fun.
