It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … and we’re decking the halls with creativity! Here at Aleene’s, we love DIYs any time of year, especially during the holidays because they add an extra personal touch that captures the magical spirit of the season. If you’re looking for a fun Christmas DIY, you’ve come to the right place! Crafterward will show you how to make a colorful faux stained glass present ornament for your tree or to give as a gift – sealed with special care from Aleene’s Spray Acrylic Sealer to make your holiday keepsakes ready to enjoy year after year. 

The only thing better than a beautiful bouquet of flowers is one that’s functional too! This clever craft from Ivy Pink Made turns pens into a colorful pot of flowers with sheets of foam and Aleene’s Felt & Foam Tacky Glue. Check out the tutorial to see how to make flower pens in the easiest way with just a few craft supplies. This project is a fun option for adding some personality to your desk or your child’s learning space, or giving as a gift for teachers and others who always need to have a pen handy!

Give your fabrics an instant update with lace! Whether you’re trying to cover a stain, make something new again, or you just want to add a special touch, lace is a versatile option that looks so lovely. Even better, you don’t have to know how to sew to add it to your fabrics; you just need Aleene’s OK To Wash-It! This permanent fabric glue dries clear, flexible and washable, making it perfect for fabric items we use and wear every day. Craft Box Girls will show you three easy, creative ideas for upcycling your fabrics with lace and OK To Wash-It!

Whose turn is it to do dishes and who’s supposed to fold laundry? Make it easy to keep your family chores organized with a household chores list you can update each week! Handmade Charlotte shows you how to use the Tack-It Method to create a glittery chore chart on plexiglass that doubles as a sparkling creative display. And by making your own changeable chore cards with Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over, it’ll be a cinch to swap them out for different family members on different days!  

What exactly are you supposed to do with a puzzle once you’ve finished it? Do you take it apart and work on it again? If you’re like us, you’re more likely to move on to another challenge. But that doesn’t mean you can’t put your old puzzles to good use! This upcycle project from Crafterward turns an old puzzle into an adorable roller skate ornament for your Christmas tree. With Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue and a few simple supplies, you’ll skate your way through this fun upcycle project in no time!
