The season is almost upon us, and there’s no better time of year to spread cheer than sharing fun Christmas Crafts. These wooden Christmas crafts provide joy to crafters of all ages.

Use any wood you may have! Many of these projects are small enough to upcycle any old wood that isn’t serving you anymore.

This list of jolly decor and ornaments will make you and your loved ones feel merry and bright all season long.

Grab a few friends, make it a party, or put on some classic seasonal movies and start tinkering away like you are part of Santa’s workshop.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season, and I hope you cherish these beautiful crafts as much as I do!

Nothing says the winter season like the thought of Frosty the Snowman or your neighborhood snowman the kids make every year.

This wooden snowman beaded ornament is minimalist in all the right ways and easy for any crafter to excel in making.

Kids are as excited as ever for Santa to come. Implementing an advent calendar into December is a great way to keep them focused on their excitement.

This rustic one is just darling and acts as the perfect counter.

Keep it minimal, add covers over each number as the month progresses, or have small presents on standby—whatever works best for your lifestyle.

The rustic snowman is a great alternative to his beaded brother above. The best part about these guys is that they can be any size of scrap wood you have lying around.  

Dress them up in any fashion that works best for your home! We’ve done both traditional and our own personalized, which are great.

5. Cute Cricut Ornaments

I continue to learn new ways to use my Cricut every month! We love making these sweet ornaments as holiday tags for our friends and ornaments for our tree.

6. Wood & Clay Scandinavian Ornament

With friends of Scandinavian descent, they taught my family how to make these beautiful ornaments a few years ago.

They have an array of vintage ones but like to make new ones every couple of years with their kids.

7. Wood Slice Snowman Ornament

One of the most fun ornaments to make by far with the little ones! I don’t know if it’s the googly eyes, the size of the craft, or the simplicity of it, but it’s always a hit.

Don’t sleep on this wonderful megapack of different-sized googly eyes.

8. Farmhouse Christmas Sign

Every year, I shop around any holiday and see these great farmhouse signs, but they are overpriced!

Well, I gave it a go last year and made my own farmhouse-style inspired Christmas sign.

The results? It looks just as good as the ones in the store.

9. Christmas Tree Center Piece

Every place for the holidays seems to get a little makeover, so why not the fridge? These magnets are versatile and fun to make, add, or edit throughout the years.

I find wooden stars at most of my favorite crafting stores, and anything I do with them generally turns out great!

These winter-inspired stars are easy and a small gift for a coworker or teacher.

If you can’t find any locally, grab some of these stars.

15. Wooden Tree Tablescape

Tablescapes are always a fun and creative place to play around with during the whole year.

This terrific fa la la holiday banner is the quickest, and maybe easiest, craft I have today. It’s simple and reminds me of Christmas past with loved ones no longer around.

18. Kid’s Rudolph Wood Slice Ornament

Along with the snowman wood slice, these are just so much fun! The two paired or as options work great for a group of kids or siblings crafting together.

Let them go creative with one or two and a few traditional ones if they are faster workers than the rest of the kiddos.

19. Wood Burnt Christmas Trees

These wood-burnt Christmas trees are unique and a little off the beaten craft path—so if you’re looking for that, this is the craft for you!

Upcycle old wooden blocks or grab scraps from the store or your collection and give them a little heat!

Channel the idea you’re roasting a s’more. Most of us don’t want it burnt to a crisp but use your judgment for how much of the effect you’d like on your Christmas trees.

20. Rustic Bell

rustic bell


Like the star crafts, I find bells at the craft stores regularly during the holidays (if you can’t find them, this is a great pack). Add anything on hand; buttons, pom poms, and stickers work.

21. Personalized Christmas Eve Sign

For possibly the coziest idea, why not try this personalized Christmas Eve sign? I used my Cricut for this particular one, but painting one onto a board works just as well.
