#1: Frosted Christmas Mason Jars
These jars are a great touch of frosty elegance for your tablescape, end table, or shelf. All it takes is 11 basic items, including something unexpected: Epsom salts. And even though the title says “Christmas,” they are designed to work all winter long. If you like the frosted look, swap out the fir branches or small wood slices for other elements, like ribbons tied in bows with colorful ornaments or buttons.

#2: Tea Light Snowman Ornaments
Tea lights are easy to come by, so why not use them in a new and unique way? It only takes a list of 8 items to turn them from the thing you stick inside something else to the center of attention. This particular project has them turning into ornaments, but you can also turn these into cute accents for a tablescape or grab some more hot glue and glue them to a wreath form to make a wreath of snowman fun!

#3: Pinecone Christmas Tree
It all starts with a papier mache cone, and it ends with a rustic, chic tree that is perfect to add some flair to any surface. The list of needs for this craft is nice and short: just 3! If you’re looking for a way to change it up, this project could double as a scented centerpiece. You can use scented pinecones and avoid the hassle and hazard of having candles.

#4: Kitschy Candlesticks
Country Living has an impressive list of holiday crafts, but make your way to number 15 for these funky fun candlesticks. They are the perfect way to recycle a few items that may be haunting your cabinets. Grab those old candlestick holders and small ornaments that just don’t fit on your tree anymore then add some hot glue and candles. That’s it! Now you’ll have festive, one-of-a-kind candleholders to feature.

#5: Wood Slice Holiday Wreath
Bring a touch of rustic whimsy to your decorations with this wood slice wreath. You can choose a word to feature to fit the season, like “joy,” “family,” or “cheer.” If you’re not interested in investing in a heat gun to scorch your letters, you can always opt for a wood-friendly paint option. This craft can be used all winter long depending on the word you add.

#6: Temporary Tattoo Ornaments
Take a trip down nostalgia lane with some temporary tattoos! Grab some solid-colored ornaments, decoupage, a brush, and a sponge, and you have everything you need to make these stylish and eye-catching ornaments. Plus, you can choose whatever theme you want for your ornaments so that you can go floral, geometric, or even pop culture.
