Bring more spirit and sentiment to your holiday season this year with CraftJam’s Christmas craft workshops and events! When the air becomes crisp and cool, and the snow begins to fall…yes, it’s time to gather with friends and family, but it’s an even better excuse to get crafty. Get creative and DIY your own awesomely festive and fun Christmas and holiday crafts this year. Here are a bunch of ideas to get you inspired. Happy crafting!
What’s Christmas without special and seasonal ornaments adorning your tree? Sure, you can easily buy Christmas ornaments, but it’s much more fun to make your own! Designing ornaments is a great activity to enjoy with your friends and family that the kids are sure to love too. It’s also a wonderful way to start traditions that will continue to make the holiday season special for you and your loved ones, year after year. You can go to your local crafts store, and pick up supplies, but if you’re not sure which to buy or how to get started, going to a beginner-friendly-class will give you everything you need to know.
CraftJam is offering a fun, DIY Wooden Ornaments workshop this year where you can learn to paint your own designs on ornaments. From designs featuring your favorite, friendly snowman and reindeer, to images of yummy holiday treats, the options are endless! Once you know how to do it on your own, you can paint ornaments each year with friends and family or return to the workshop to learn new ornament craft ideas each holiday season!
Nothing says date night like luscious chocolate. Treat your significant other this holiday season with delightfully delicious and oh-so-romantic, DIY chocolate lollipops! If you’re like a lot of us, you’re more into the eating and enjoying part of desserts, and probably not as excited about the actual baking. (Oh, is that just me?) Well, with CraftJam’s Chocolate Lollipops workshop, there is no need to worry about baking! Jump right to the fun part and learn how to design your own delectable masterpiece on yummy and seasonal chocolate treats.
Of course, you can enjoy this craft all year long, but sharing this crafting experience with family during the holiday season makes it even more special. Or maybe, you are looking for a fun activity to share with your best girlfriends? Designing chocolate lollipops is an awesome idea for your next girl’s night out. Create designs that are totally you, try setting up a contest between your friends and family to choose the best design, and then share on your social channels. You are sure to impress all your followers and friends with your delicious and dazzling designs. Thinking of a way to spice up the romance with your significant other this Christmas? Easily turn a special night this season, with your loved one into a fun and full event by going out to dinner first, and then taking this workshop for the perfect, appetizing and aesthetically pleasing dessert!
Holiday Wreath Workshop
From sleigh bells ringing and chestnuts roasting to the jolly sounds of children laughing and singing carols, Christmas is filled with so many sights, sounds, and scents that make the season special and memorable. But yuletide just wouldn’t be the same without a festive wreath hanging upon your door. These eye-catching and seasonal decorations are traditionally made of evergreens, with holly oak and berries, and symbolize everlasting life and eternal love of God. While the wreath itself has several interesting origins, it’s become almost synonymous with the Christmas season itself. Hanging one upon your door or in your house is a Christmas tradition that brings great sentiment and emotional meaning to the holidays.
You can easily buy one but creating your own is even more special and offers an awesome crafting opportunity for the whole family to get involved! Go to CraftJam’s Holiday Wreaths Workshop this year to learn how to make your own beautiful wreath with real plants and impress all your neighbors and friends. Once you know how to make your own, you can make another family tradition of your own, designing a wreath with your loved ones each year to ring in the season. Or you can return to the workshop to learn and practice new designs each year.
How about a crafting idea that you can use and enjoy all year long? Well, with CraftJam’s Whiskey Tumbler and Wine Glass Etching workshop, you can learn how to etch beautiful and festive designs on wine glasses and tumblers to enjoy at family gatherings throughout the entire year. While this craft is sure to add an extra dash of special sentiment to the holiday season, you can still enjoy your new decorative glassware at every get-together with family and friends, long after the snow has stopped falling (or you’ve finally finished your holiday gift returns). Trying to etch designs on tumblers and wine glasses would probably be very challenging for a complete newbie, but at CraftJam’s workshop, you can enjoy a safe, fun and beginner-friendly environment to get your crafting and creative juices flowing. And it’s easier than you may think! This crafting idea is perfect for date night or a girl’s night out and of course, is a great event to enjoy BYOB!
Any of these crafting ideas are perfect for booking your own private event. Thinking of a unique and awesomely fun and memorable event idea for your winter birthday, bridal shower, baby shower, etc.? Try one of CraftJam’s Christmas crafting ideas and share an experience with loved ones and friends that everyone will still be talking about for months, even years after. And of course, since you will leave the workshop with your own amazing DIY project, you are leaving with so much more than just incredible and special memories. Learning how to design and decorate holiday crafts is also a great idea for a corporate, team-building event. If you have your own crafting idea for a CraftJam event or corporate event that you’d love to try out, feel free to reach out and contact us. We can’t wait to make your event special and filled with crafting fun!
