How to Make Your Own Christmas Crafts

Looking for a unique gift to give friends, family and customers this festive season, or a Christmas-y craft to entertain the kids? From seasonal stocking fillers, to unique decorations; we have put together some of our favourite seasonal crafts to inspire you to get creative this Christmas.  

Sparkling Snowflake

You will need

  • 6 pieces of glittery card
  • String


  • Glue
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

Who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle at Christmas? This beautiful paper star ornament is a great way to add some festive cheer to any room – and is so simple to make. 

Start with a sheet of glittery card in your choice of colour and fold it diagonally to make a square - cut out the excess paper. Once you have cut out your square, refold the paper so you have a triangle with one long side. From the long side of the triangle cut four lines parallel to the short edge, three centimetres apart, from one corner of the triangle towards the middle. Repeat this on the other side of the triangle’s long edge. Be sure to stop at staggered intervals so that the cuts do not meet in the middle. 

Once you have made all of your cuts; open the square back out and curl the middle section inwards so the two corners join and stick them together. Take the next section and curl in the opposite direction. Continue sticking the remaining sections, remembering to alternate as you go. Continue this pattern until all of the sections have been completed. This is then your first piece – you need to make six of these.

Once you have created all your pieces, begin to stick them together side by side forming the six points of a star. It is easier to stick three sections together first, and then repeat with the remaining three sections. Once all your sections have been stuck together, poke a small hole into one piece and thread your string through so you can hang your decoration. 

Customised Cracker


You will need

  • Christmas cracker template
  • Cracker snaps
  • Ribbon
  • Small prizes such as Aloe Lips  
  • Paper hat/ joke/ contact details 


  • Scissors
  • Glue

These crackers are a fantastic addition to your Christmas table, or a great way to give your customers a festive treat whilst also promoting your business!

Take your card cracker template and place it upside down on your work surface, so that the patterned side is facing down. Stick the cracker snap to the cracker, making sure you stick down both the top and bottom, but leaving the middle free. 

Once you have stuck the snap, begin to create the shape of your cracker. Starting from the middle, insert the tabs into the slots to create a cylindrical shape. Tie one end of the cracker with the ribbon. 

Now fill your cracker with your prize, hat, joke and contact card and tie up the other end. 

Let it Snow (Globe)

You will need 

  • DIY snow globe (you can find these in your local craft store)
  • Card
  • Water


  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pipette

These cute snow globes make a fantastic decoration and are also a uniquely festive way to promote your business to you customers. 

Start by drawing your template onto your card, making sure that it fits into the slot in the snow globe. Customise your card in any way you like – add images, contact details, or holiday greetings etc. – we chose a festive image, and our Business Owner Support Contact number.

Once you have chosen the image for your snow globe, it’s time to fill it. Remove the stopper and using a pipette, carefully fill with water making sure that there is no air bubble. Insert the stopper and make sure your snow globe is fully dry. 

Carefully cut out your template and insert it into the slot in your globe. You now have a cute little business tool to spread some festive cheer to your customers.

  • DIY Bauble (you can find these in your local craft store)
  • Shredded paper
  • Small gifts such as Aloe Lips


  • Tape

In search of a last-minute gift that still looks like a lot of effort went into it? Why not make your own bauble to give as a gift to family and friends. Simply take your bauble casing, and fill with the shredded paper and small gift such as Aloe Lips to give your recipient the fabulous gift of soft, smooth lips all winter long.  

Aloe Angel 

You will need

  • Empty Forever Aloe Vera Gel 330ml
  • Ping pong ball
  • String
  • Glitter card
  • Fabric


  • Scissors
  • Glue

Looking for a fun activity to do with kids? Get them involved in this fabulously festive craft. It’s so easy to make, and great for recycling those empty aloe bottles too. 

Start by carefully cutting the bottom out of an empty aloe bottle, making sure that the inside is clean and dry before decorating. Cut out some wings from your glittery card and stick a ping pong ball to the neck of the bottle to form the head. 

Now that you have your basic angel shape, it is time to decorate! We added a material skirt, and string for hair, but your kids be as creative as they like with glitter, sequins and pipe cleaners. 

Once your decoration is complete don’t forget to give your angel a nice big smiley face!
