It’s a magical time of year. We make lists, we over plan, and end the year with 10 unfinished projects … WAIT! That’s not a good holiday Hallmark movie trailer now is it? ha. The truth is it is a magical time of year, but we run out of time for projects or don’t know where to start.

Making Christmas decor for me and gifts is always a win! This time of year we have so many parties, and family visits, and it’s always fun to bring a hostess gift. Or maybe you need a white elephant gift idea. Let’s not forget Secret Santa gift ideas this time of year. I’m sure you’ll find some ideas here.
Canvas Paper for a Sign
This Santa Hat Boho Rainbow is perfect for this Christmas craft with printable canvas paper to make a sign.
Use this Santa Hat Boho Rainbow with printable canvas paper and a frame (repurpose or paint an old one) and you have a very cute and professional-looking decor item. Use it as a gift or for yourself… or both!
Use the printable canvas paper for framed art or ornaments.
You can print 5-6 of the SVG design smaller and cut the canvas paper in a triangle shape for a banner.
It’s fun to add some embellishments to make it pop! Little wooden snowflakes, miniature Santa hats. Or like I did here, add a pom-pom with hot glue to the canvas. This was a sparkly one for the holidays.
Repurpose Old Canvases
Use an outdated piece of canvas art (thrift stores have lots of these). Cover it with an old shirt or material for a new look.
Here is how I used an old canvas to create new Christmas decor with an SVG. I just love how it turned out, it has a cozy feeling!
Make Christmas Cards with SVGs and your Cricut
I love cardmaking. I love Christmas. So let’s mix in a little of both with Christmas cards and our Cricuts (or cutting machine).
Each year we did a fun Christmas card photo. Sometimes I came up with funny ones if I do say so myself. I wanted to share the memories with the kids as they grew up so made small Christmas day albums. I found them at Hobby Lobby and bought enough holiday paper for all 18 years.
