Quick and Easy Holiday Crafts: 4 Moms

Today the 4 Moms are sharing some quick and easy holiday crafts.

Beaded Bobby Pins

What girl doesn’t love something pretty for her hair? These beaded bobby pins are fun to make and fun to receive.

Marshmallow Gun

This marshmallow gun is always a huge hit. It has the fun of a Nerf gun with advantage of super cheap, disposable ammunition. (It shoots mini marshmallows.) It’s also simple and inexpensive to make.

These were one of our kids all-time favorite stocking stuffers and marshmallow wars still break out regularly.

Cinnamon Ornaments or Gift Tags

These cinnamon ornaments make fun guest gifts (each December we pass out small gifts to everyone who visits our home) or gift tags for other presents.

Monogrammed Burlap Pillows

Our children made these simple, personalized pillows one year as gifts for the grandparents.

Domino Ornaments

These simple domino ornaments are easy enough for even preschoolers to make.

Beauty Products

For the past few years we’ve given homemade beauty products such as lip balm, lotions, body scrubs and body butters. This year we’re going with a chocolate theme.

We tweaked this recipe and made chocolate mint lip balm and we’re pairing that with some of this cocoa body scrub and cocoa body butter.
