'Tis the Season to be Crafty

Martha Stewart isn't the only one with holiday craft ideas that will leave observers speechless and full of cheer.

Take these how-tos and create one-of-a-kind decorations for the holidays or craft and gift your piece of art. This roundup of tips is also good for kids to stay busy over the winter break. 

Better Homes and Gardens offers instructions for a number of crafty creations, including: 

  • Crystalized Christmas trees are made out of rock candy, but we don't recommend indulging after the holidays. After all, there is glue involved. 
  • Hanging ornament artwork is a cost-efficient idea and the decor won't take up any floor space as it is meant to be hung on the wall.

  • This ribbon Christmas card hanger is a neat pick and seems pretty doable, regardless of your level of artistic ability.
  • cute-as-a-button wreath is a great option for kids of all ages.
