Christmas Crafts For Seniors

Are you looking for some of the best and easiest crafts to make for the Christmas season? Seniors will love all of the following projects!

Cocoa Mugs

Nothing says holiday season quite like a hot cup of cocoa. For this craft, the instructions are simple and easy to follow. Begin by picking out either porcelain or ceramic mugs from any store of your choosing. Choose solid colors so your extra decorations can stand out as much as possible. Next, use some porcelain pens to decorate the mugs with various designs and/or patterns. Seal the artwork in by baking the mugs in the oven for 30 minutes at a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Personalize the cups by adding names of loved ones!

Materials Needed:

  • Porcelain or ceramic mug.
  • Porcelain pens.

Christmas Candy Containers

The holidays are meant for the sweet tooth. Make sure plenty of candy and treats are available for anyone stopping by to share the holiday spirit. Container designs are completely up to you! Presentation is key with this fun craft, so spruce it up as much as you’d like. Make the container look like a classic gumball machine or some other timeless design.

Materials Needed:

  • Any sort of candy container.
  • Pens, markers or paintbrushes.

Glitter Ornaments
