Amazing Christmas Crafts to Sell
Mason jar luminary
If you ever wondered why mason jars are very popular during the holidays, it’s because there are so many things you can do with it. For this project, take an old mason jar, cover it with Epsom salt and adorn with little ornaments. Add a battery-operated tealight candle inside for that soft, beautiful glow. You can find an easy tutorial here.
Don’t know what to do with the numerous wine bottles stocked up at home? It’s time to upcycle them! With some paint and a few accessories, you can easily create Christmas-themed figures like these.
DIY Pearl Wreath
If you want to step out of the conventional holiday wreaths and make one that’s glamorous and sophisticated (but doesn’t look like it), then this DIY pearl wreath fits the bill perfectly.
Now, this is a really cool idea, pup intended. All you need is glue some diamond vase fillers and glue them into the branch. This creates an “iced droplets” look on the branches. You can place the iced branches in a vase and serve as a table centerpiece. Here’s how you can do this.
Bowtie Pasta Glitter Garland
Glitter-covered bowtie pasta is possibly one of the easy Christmas crafts to make and sell. Just gather some bowtie pasta, cover with glue, then sprinkle with glitter. Once dry, tie them all up together into a garland. Easy peasy right? You can follow this tutorial so you can make yours today.
Snowflakes are popular Christmas crafts that sell. While you can use other types of materials to make your snowflakes, I love using mine with beads. All you need are some wires (formed into snowflakes) and beads. This craft is incredibly easy to do, plus beaded snowflakes can still be used for occasions beyond Christmas. Learn how to make beaded snowflakes here.
DIY Glitter light bulbs
Gather up your burned out light bulbs and use them to decorate your tree this year. Coat each bulb with glue then dip with glitter until fully-covered. You’ll be blown away with the results. Here’s an instructional post on how to create glitter light bulbs from My Growing Creative Life.
DIY Citrus Garland
Want to make some easy crafts to sell for Christmas without spending so much money upfront? You could do a citrus garland. Simply cut up citrus fruits into thin slices and let dry. Tie them up together with a thread or wire. This is an easy ornament that will bring life (and some good citrusy) scent to any tree or bare walls. Feather and Nest has a very detailed step-by-step guide on doing this.
You probably wouldn’t think of using styrofoam balls for your wreath, would you? But why not? Styrofoam balls are super cheap and easy to find, and rounding them up on a wreath will give any home a unique look. Finish the look with a ribbon on top and it’ll surely be one of the easy Christmas crafts to sell. Here’s how to make your own styrofoam ball wreath, courtesy of Addicted to Decorating.
It’s pretty hard to imagine Christmas without pine cones, that’s probably why many people try to incorporate pine cones with every ornament they can think of.

Make yours festive with this painted pine cone wreath tutorial by Sarah Hearts.
LED Tea Light Snowman Ornament
What could possibly be cuter than glowing snowmen? You can turn your leftover tea light candles from Halloween into adorable snowmen by adding a face, nose, and a red scarf. This is seriously one of the fun and easy Christmas crafts to sell at bazaar! Here’s how to do it.
If you’re quite the wine lover, you probably have a couple of wine corks lying around. And what better way to put them to use than turn them into ornaments for the holidays. In fact, you just need to assemble them together with glue then adorn with twine and ribbon. Decor by the Seashore has an easy-to-follow tutorial of doing this easy Christmas craft.
Christmas Cookie Container
Cookies are quite mainstays during the holidays. But apart from how delicious your cookies are, the presentation can really make an impact. That’s why I recommend turning your empty Pringles cans into fun and festive cookie containers. Let Fun-Squared show you how.
Wine bottles are really so flexible that throwing them away is just a total disgrace.

The best things about these flannel coasters is that they are reversible and washable, and are perfect serving partners for chocolates and pumpkin spice lattes come winter.

Scrabble letter ornaments
Another fun and crafty project you can make and sell during the holidays are scrabble letter ornaments. All you have to do is form Christmas-related words from scrabble pieces and then glue them up together. Crafty Morning even elevates this project by gluing the tiles on a strip of ribbon and adding tiny bells at the bottom. Surely, these ornaments will bring more life to your Christmas tree.
String Christmas trees
Some people just don’t have the time to hunt, cut and haul massive trees into their homes, so they prefer miniature versions that they can easily place on any surface. For this matter, string Christmas trees make excellent alternatives. All you have to do is wrap a cone with glue-dipped yarn and let dry. You’ll see that it’s one of the easy DIY Christmas crafts to sell. Here’s a tutorial from Simple Silver Linings.

This project is almost similar to string Christmas trees, only this time, you’ll make ball ornaments that you can hang on your real tree.
