Winter Craft Kit
If you’re a winter lover, the changing seasons and shimmer of snow is reason enough to celebrate. Kids of all ages can take part in crafting wintry decor with our Winter Craft Kit ($16.99).
Created in icy shades of blues, white, and grays, this craft kit encourages young crafters to look to the outdoors for inspiration. Your little ones can use the designs right on the box for craft ideas, or think outside the box, quite literally, and just get creative using the ample supplies included in the kit.
Build your own snowman, decorate a skate, top the tree with a shining star, and style a snowflake—all with the pom poms, glitter and glue, sticker backed gemstones and more that are included in the kit.
Display Your Winter Art!
Grab some string from your Charm Chest Jewelry Kit ($17.99) and string your cold weather crafts together!
Drape across your mantle, door frame, or even your Christmas tree to add a splash of color and charm to any room of the house!
Paper Mache Ornaments
Like most families, memories are attached to the array of ornaments hanging on your annual Christmas tree. There’s no better way to build on that treasure chest of holidays past than by crafting ornaments of your very own using Kid Made Modern’s Paper Mache Ornament Kit ($24.99).
Each kit makes three ornaments, and includes all the supplies you need to make your hanging art special. From glitter to sequins, and paillettes to pom poms, crafters aged six and up will delight over the endless ways to customize their own ornaments. Of course, the Paper Mache Ornament Kit makes a great gift for all the art makers in your life!
Looking to shake things up this holiday decor season? Spice up your traditional stockings hung by the chimney with care by adding an ornament made by each of the members of your household! Of course, these ornaments are gorgeous when hung on holiday trees, but are just as festive when displayed throughout your home!
DIY Ornament Kits for Handmade Fun!
Looking to go full scale make-your-own? We have even more holiday ornament kits that will make your decorations truly one-of-a-kind.
Our Decorate A Reindeer Ornament Kit ($4.99) is a great stocking stuffer and makes one super special DIY tree bauble.
Our Decorate A Wreath Ornament Kit ($4.99) also makes a great gift when you want to spread some crafting cheer without breaking the bank. Thinking of gifting to your kids’ classmates or friends who love winter cheer, but perhaps don’t celebrate the Christmas holiday? Consider this reversible craft in the style of a winter classic, and can be hung just about anywhere!
