Momtastic sure knows how to craft! No matter what theme or style you are perfecting for your gathering, there is sure to be a pattern that will make these Handmade Holiday Napkins a perfect match. Head to the dollar store to buy basic cloth napkins (or make your own), some craft glue, a brush, and get to work!

Cupcake Paper Christmas Tree

Okay, these are so party-perfect that we almost forgive A Spoonful of Sugar Designs for making something with cupcake wrappers that doesn’t include batter! These Cupcake Wrapper Christmas Trees are nearly too easy to be true; you only need three simple supplies to make these decorative trees!

Snowflake Garland

Disregard the weather outside (Mother Nature’s unpredictable anyway) and let it snow inside with this super simple snowflake tutorial from Hello Naomi. Grab some doilies, enlist the help of a few elves, and snip and string away!

Festive Wrapping with Holiday Gift Tags

DIY holiday gift tags

Chances are, your get-together involves gifting (and if it doesn’t, you may want to consider stepping up your game). Giving a gift that is impeccably wrapped can take the whole present to the next level — regardless of what’s inside! Shop around for some classy prints (ya know, the kind that doesn’t have Santa or snowmen on it) and make some holiday gift tags like these ones by Oh So Beautiful Paper. And if you’re baffled by the whole gift wrapping process, we’ve got an app a guide for that.

Glass Vase Snowman

How cool would this Glass Vase Snowman look surrounded by a plate of cookies and perfectly garnished cocktails? Celebrations At Home took a simple vase and brought it to life with felt, googly eyes, and adhesive gems. Talk about a cheap and easy piece of holiday decor!

Frosted Luminary Wine Bottles

DIY Wine Bottle Luminaries

You basically need these Frosted Luminary Wine Bottles on display for the season. Not only are they a great way to upcycle what might otherwise be trash, but they’re super simple and will add a little extra spirit to the room. Spray paint, mini Christmas lights, and craft supplies are nearly all you need to make one of these bright bottles from Ginger Snap Crafts!
