As the proverbial holiday clock ticks down before Christmas and you gaze longingly at the Christmas craft stash. The craft stash had the best of intentions, but you’ve run out of time! Yet you still would like to include a homemade craft or stocking stuffer – you still have time with these easy and homemade last minute Christmas Gifts and Stocking Stuffers.
Christmas Candy Cane Sleigh
Purchase your chocolate and heat up the glue gun and in a few minutes you will have made Christmas Candy Cane Sleighs!
Very easy, very quick and very accommodating as a cute addition to every Christmas plate and Christmas card!
Chocolates which work well for the Christmas Candy Cane Sleigh are:
Hershey mini bars, Christmas mix
Mini Santas, snowmen, teddy bears
Full tutorial is available for assembly ideas; but a glue gun is all that is needed to assembly the sleighs.
The DIY Lottery Ticket Tree
Do you have an instant lottery ticket fan in your Santa circle?
While I have made the DIY Lottery Ticket Tree with a stand alone mini tree in advance the lottery ticket tree can also be the ultimate last minute gift by just buying the the tickets and a little creative surprise decorating.
This is the ultimate last minute DIY when you creatively place the lottery tickets on the actual Christmas tree! Lottery ticket Santa uses binder clips Christmas eve to attach the lottery tickets to your Christmas tree so the tree is sparkling with lottery tickets for the morning. Buy you instant lottery tickets, a few small binder clips and creative decorating equals the Christmas Lottery Tree!
Edible Christmas Tree
This DIY does take a bit of labor, but the reward is worth the effort! From pre Christmas through the New Year is the perfect time to make your guests the Edible Vegetable Christmas Tree. All you need are toothpicks, foil, vegetables and a Styrofoam cone (check the dollar store!) to craft your tree.
Add your favorite veggie dipping sauce and watch your guests eat their way through the tree.
