Kids can get in on the action too. Grab some paper and let’s get started!

3D Tree

This 3D tree is brought to you by Handimania. It can be made in any size with your desired number of branches. You can also experiment with different types of paper, or decorate it with markers, glitter, beads, string “garlands,” and whatever else you can dream up! A cluster of these paper holiday decorations makes a festive centerpiece – or you can plant one at every setting. The options are endless.

Adorable Paper House

Create a sweet keepsake with just one sheet of paper. You can make one for each child to treasure. These houses can also live outside the tree on mantels and tabl

es – or you can create a whole village. Use them to hide little notes or treats for an Advent Calendar. They’re pretty and compact, and will dress up your decor.

Give Your Garland a Boost

Need a little more pizazz for your patio, hallway, or mantel? Create a colorful design to offset your greens. Make stars, arrows, hearts, trees, angels, sleds, candy canes, Santas, and more. A little can go a long way. This is the perfect craft for kids who like to cut! It just requires scissors, glue, and a little ingenuity!

Frilly Flakes

These gorgeous snowflakes put regular cutouts to shame, but do not worry. You can make them as fancy or as fun as you’d like. Create the feeling of a true winter wonderland in your home with paper!
