Useful tips

  1. It is necessary to reconsider the set of Christmas tree decorations and garlands. Old jewelry that has lost its attractiveness - go away!
  2. There is no need to rush to the store for expensive balls, wreaths and cones. You can make amazing New Year's decorations with your own hands from natural materials. Believe me, your Christmas tree and New Year's table will only benefit from such toys and compositions.
  3. Take care in advance of the natural materials that you will use for decorations. You may need: apple and thuja twigs, willow twigs, spruce or pine cones, rowan berries on twigs. However, natural material can be collected without any restrictions. Anything that inspires you can become a wonderful New Year's decoration that will surprise your guests and delight you throughout the New Year.
  4. And one last thing. In addition to natural materials that you can collect in the park or in the forest, when taking the whole family on an unforgettable winter walk, you will have to stock up on cans of gold and silver paint, braid, wire, tape, glue and other decorative elements and fastenings, which are sold in handicraft departments and in specialized florist shops. Purchasing paint, beautiful ribbons and twine is a mandatory and important point. Nowadays you won’t surprise anyone with glued foam chips, and windows painted with gouache are appropriate only in a kindergarten. New Year's decorations made from natural materials should be elegant and sophisticated. You should not overload the product with all sorts of decorative things. A single ball with a golden bow on a spruce foot looks more attractive than a whole mountain of beads and “rain.”

  • Vine toys

    Toys made from grapevines will be an excellent Christmas tree decoration. You can weave simple balls, bells and stars from it. The vine for the product should be flexible and not too thick. The ends of the vine are fixed with wire. When the toy is ready, let it dry for 3 to 5 days, then spray paint it. If paint is applied to a wet product, it may peel off as it dries. Tie a thin golden thread or cord to the finished decoration. You can tie ribbons in the form of bows to the attachment point, as in the photo.

    Pine cone decorations

    Real pine or fir cones look very beautiful on the Christmas tree. They look much more beautiful when they are already open. Closed cones need to be dried in a warm place, then they will open. Paint them with gold spray paint. To hang a pine cone on a Christmas tree, hook several scales of its base with a thread and tie a knot. Using the resulting loop, hang the decoration on the spruce foot.

    You don’t have to paint the cones, then your artificial Christmas tree will look like a real living forest beauty.

    The cone may look snowy and truly “wintery”. To do this, the tips of its scales are painted with white paint. A regular white concealer will also work for these purposes.

    Pine cones, unlike spruce cones, are placed with the top up. To do this, a thread, or golden twine, with which the cone will be attached to the spruce leg, is wrapped around several scales of the base. No loop is made; the ends of the thread remain free. Using a thread, the cone is tied with the top up.

    Small spray painted pine cones can be used to decorate a Christmas wreath.

    New Year's stylized hats made of threads

    The remains of knitting threads are perfect for creating such delightful hats, or suitable for decorating windows, shelves and fir trees.

    1. Cut a ring of the desired diameter from the sleeve, or glue it from a strip of cardboard;
    2. Fold the yarn in half, attach it to the ring and thread the ends through the loop. Pull them carefully so that the knot is tied at the bottom of the ring;
    3. Attach the threads throughout the ring so that they lie tightly. The main thing is that the base should not be visible through them;
    4. Tie the loose ends with yarn. Trim the edges to create a nice neat pompom. Sew a loop to it and hang it anywhere.

    Advent wreath using natural materials

    You can make original table arrangements from natural materials. It has now become very fashionable to place a Christmas wreath in the center of the table. Also pay attention to this master class with step-by-step photos: “DIY New Year’s wreath.”

    To make it you will need:

    • Thuja twigs;
    • Small Christmas balls;
    • Candles;
    • Tea saucer for placing candles;
    • Wire;
    • Christmas tree beads.
    1. Weave a wreath from thuja branches, fastening the branches together with wire or strong dark green thread. Decorate the resulting wreath with beads, leaving large gaps between turns. Remember, the product must not be overloaded!
    2. You can use old plastic beads. To do this, separate the beads into individual beads and string each one onto a thicker thread so that the beads do not slip. The beads should not touch each other; leave gaps of 1.5 - 2 cm between them. Spray paint the resulting chain. After the paint has dried, wrap the beads around the wreath. Then hang the balls on the branches of the wreath. It is better that they are the same color and size. If your beads are golden, red or gold beads are best. It’s quite cold, but silver jewelry looks no less original.
    3. Place a saucer in the center of the wreath and place candles on it. To do this, drop melted wax on a saucer and immerse the candle in it. Hold the candle for a while until the wax hardens. Decorate the saucer with thuja branches or flower petals. You can place cinnamon sticks between the branches. This will give the wreath a special aroma.

    Just a little time, hard work and imagination and original New Year's decorations made from natural materials are ready. Let them take their place in your home and bring an atmosphere of comfort and celebration.

    New Year's crafts from fir cones

    Fir cones differ from pine cones in shape. They are more neatly designed and more elongated. It’s impossible to say for sure which pine cones are more beautiful, because it all depends on your taste and craftsmanship. In some cases, fir cones will not look as impressive as pine cones.

    What can you make from fir cones with your own hands? New Year's crafts are completely diverse. This could be a beautiful garland, a Christmas wreath, candlesticks and other decorative elements.

    Beauty cone

    An ordinary pine cone will fit perfectly into the New Year's decor. It would seem how unpretentious an accessory it is, and what wonderful toys can be made from it and how many ideas can be realized. The cone can simply be hung by a coarse twine, and the top can be decorated with a beautifully tied bow made of satin ribbon to match the overall color scheme. Or make New Year trees from pine cones, crowning them with numerous multi-colored plasticine balls. It seems simple, but it looks really unusual and creative.

    Garland of pine cones for the New Year:

    Making a garland is not at all difficult. It will look equally beautiful if you make it from fir cones or pine cones.

    To do this you will need:

    • leg-split
    • satin ribbons or burlap
    • bumps
    • glue gun

    Using satin ribbons, attach the pine cones to the twine.

    If you have burlap, cut it into thin strips.

    You can secure the cones using a glue gun. You can decorate this craft from Christmas tree cones with your own hands using beads. You can also cover the cones with white paint and add artificial snow to the edges.

    As the holidays approach, New Year's crafts made from pine cones for kindergartens become relevant. Here your imagination can run wild, because you can do anything. It could be a simple Christmas tree made of pine cones or a wreath.

    Large decorative ball

    Large crafts made from pine cones look very impressive - like this ball on a foam rubber base covered with pine cones.

    List of materials and tools:

    • foam ball;
    • cones;
    • wire;
    • satin ribbon;
    • glue gun

    First, prepare the cones - clean them of debris and dry them - you will need well-opened specimens. To make your craft look especially elegant for the New Year, make the cones shiny - spray them with hairspray and sprinkle the scales with glitter.

    Making decor:

    1. Attach a wire to the bottom of each cone - roll it into a spiral and glue it with glue, leaving a long, even tip.
    2. Stick the sharp edge of the wire together with the pine cone into the foam ball.
    3. Decorate the ball with cones over the entire area, piercing it from all sides.
    4. Fold the ribbon into a loop and glue it to the foam base.

    An alternative to foam rubber is a foam ball or even a ball of polyurethane foam. The main thing is to disguise it well with pine cones, decorate it with tinsel, branches or rain.

    New Year's craft Christmas tree made of pine cones for kindergarten

    This option is perfect for a children's competition. After all, you can make not just a Christmas tree, but a beautiful Christmas tree composition.

    New Year's crafts for the garden made from pine cones amaze with their diversity. If you don’t have a large number of cones and other materials, then even from one cone you can make a beautiful New Year’s craft with your own hands.

    It is impossible to imagine the New Year without a beautiful Christmas tree, and such trees can be placed in different rooms. They will give your home comfort and add magic. After all, a festive mood is so necessary on cold winter evenings.

    New Year's crafts for kindergarten using pine cones can be a little simpler, so that it would be more interesting for the child to be creative with you.

    Why do we need homemade toys?

    In fact - why? After all, any New Year's toy can be bought in a store. Nothing could be easier! So why waste time and effort, getting craft materials somewhere? Moreover, it is far from certain that the result will be something truly worthwhile.

    The answer to this question suggests itself as follows. Yes, of course, there is less hassle with store-bought toys. I bought them, hung them on the tree, and it was done. But still, a toy made with your own hands is much more valuable than a purchased one.

    1. New Year's toys that are sold on the shelves, with all their diversity, are still the same type and similar to one another. This is consumer goods. And you can make a unique toy with your own hands. A homemade toy is always a piece of goods.
    2. A toy made by yourself is much cheaper than a purchased one, which is also of considerable importance.
    3. The process of making New Year's toys is also important. Man is a creative being. By making New Year's crafts, people are imbued with a special creative spirit and mood, they begin to look forward to the coming of the New Year, and a feeling of celebration settles in their souls. This applies to both adults and, especially, children.
    4. By the way, about children. In addition to joy and pleasure, such skill brings other benefits to kids. It teaches them to feel and see beauty, develops perseverance and attentiveness, and helps them master handicraft skills that will definitely be useful in later life.

    That's how many benefits there are from DIY New Year's toys! So create, gentlemen, create! And in this article we will tell you how best to do this.

    Christmas wreath made of pine cones

    Not long ago, the tradition of hanging Christmas wreaths on doors came to our country. If you are wondering what to make as a craft for school, then this pine cone wreath would be a great idea.

    Necessary materials:

    • bumps
    • decor
    • acrylic paint (brown)
    • brush
    • glue gun
    • the basis

    The first step is to think about what will suit the base of your wreath. You can buy ready-made foam plastic in the store or make it yourself from cardboard.

    In this case, a stick from a water pistol is used. Bend it and secure it with tape.

    Paint it brown

    Let's attach the cones tightly to each other.

    We decorate the cones with decorative pompoms

    Making such a wreath is not difficult. But if you use other decorative elements, you may get a completely different result.

    DIY New Year's toy for the competition

    Such competitions are held quite often - in schools, kindergartens, and at city forums. Every year, parents captivate the organizers with their imagination and skills. For those who are not good at needlework or don’t have time to fantasize, we suggest considering several simple and at the same time interesting New Year’s tree decorations. Competition in kindergarten and at school are two different things, because the complexity of the craft depends directly on the child’s capabilities. No matter how hard the parents try, the child must take part in the creation if he cannot cope on his own.

    For kindergarten, you might consider making a cute sleigh out of wooden popsicle sticks. To do this you will need several sticks, paint and rope.

    Another option is a chic Santa Claus, which is made from the same sticks with cotton wool and felt.

    Connect the sticks as needed as shown in the picture using hot glue.

    Glue cotton wool instead of a beard and cut out a hat from felt. You can choose the eyes at a store that sells toy products.


    A Christmas tree can be significantly transformed by a bright and beautiful decoration. Therefore, it is so important to approach the time of decorating the Christmas tree more seriously and choose or make toys with taste.

    You can create a bright New Year's toy from old buttons.

    Using a similar technique, you can make a ball of sequins, which can be secured with sewing pins that have colored heads.

    If you beautifully lay out the beads on a foam ball, you can get bright and beautiful Christmas tree balls.

    On the Christmas tree decorations you can see real paintings and compositions made of beads

    Christmas tree decorations made of jute and burlap

    Eco-design is becoming more and more popular, so we use jute thread and burlap in our New Year’s crafts.

    Big toys

    Using threads, you can also create wonderful jewelry of rather large size - giants. Just inflate the balloon, wrap it with a thread soaked in PVA glue and leave it for 24 hours. After drying, the ball is burst, leaving an airy New Year's toy made of threads, which, for decorative purposes, can be coated with silver or gold paint, decorated with beads, seed beads, sequins, and ribbons. Thread the ribbon and the accessory is ready. If you prepare two or three balls of different sizes, you can make a snowman.

    Christmas trees are made from threads using the same principle. Use a Whatman paper cone as the base on which you will wind the thread. You can make such a toy in miniature if you take a simple sheet of cardboard instead of whatman paper. Light beads and ribbon bows are useful for decoration.

    By the way, use a cone of whatman paper for the base if you are going to make Father Frost and the Snow Maiden. It is enough to glue such a cone, paint it, or make clothes from paper or fabric. The head can be an inflated balloon with a painted face.

    Boxes from household appliances are also useful for giant toys; they can be covered with foil, colored paper, appliques, or even made into a Nutcracker.

    DIY fragrant Christmas tree decorations

    We make Christmas decorations with elements of natural flavors: cinnamon sticks, oranges and tangerines, twigs of thuja and spruce.

    Funny ninjas

    Small ninja toys with cute moving eyes will save your home’s beautiful Christmas tree from being too formal. After all, looking at such New Year's decorations, you involuntarily want to smile.

    To work, you will need very few materials: dark opaque balls (they can even be made of plastic), narrow ribbons of different colors, toy eyes (a pair for each ninja).

    • We wrap each ball with two turns of ribbon, securing the improvised fighter’s bandage to a knot at the back. For greater reliability, the tape can be placed on glue.
    • Glue the eyes to the ribbon on the front, that’s it – decorations for the New Year can be hung on the Christmas tree.

    Angels on the Christmas tree

    For Christmas we are adding new decorations to the Christmas tree. We suggest making magical angels with your own hands.

    They can be made from soft fabric or felt.

    Snowflakes made from... pasta

    For a thrifty and creative housewife, even pasta can become the basis for creating amazingly beautiful decorations in the new year 2021. You can give free rein to your imagination here - after all, each new snowflake can be completely different from the previous one. All you need to do is stock up on as many different types of pasta as possible in the nearest supermarket (flowers, Christmas trees, spirals, shells, etc.). You also cannot do without glue, white paint and braid (ribbon, fishing line, thread) for hanging.

    We form the pattern starting from the center, maintaining symmetry. How the toys turn out depends only on your imagination. We glue the parts of the decoration together with glue. At the end of the work, paint the snowflake white, additionally decorating the decor with sparkles to your liking.

    New Year's candlesticks in eco-style

    Another indispensable attribute of the New Year and Christmas is candles. And where there are candles, there are candlesticks; you can’t live without them.

The main thing is not to forget about fire safety: wood, of course, is perfectly environmentally friendly, but it is very flammable. If you don’t want to take risks, take an ordinary glass jar and decorate it to your taste - we get a beautiful and safe candlestick:

    Candlesticks with decor made from natural materials Or you can take not a jar, but a wide glass or a tall glass. And place the decor not outside, but inside. Or make a “scented candle” using an orange, lemon, tangerine or lime as a candlestick - when heated, they will spread a citrus aroma.

    Rooster on the Christmas tree

    It will look good made of paper or other materials. You can make a lot of these cockerels and collect the pendants into a garland to decorate your home. If you are going to make a paper cockerel, use cardboard as a base, which you will cover on both sides.

    1. You will need multi-colored sheets of colored paper (you can use colored cardboard) and a sheet of cardboard. Draw the silhouette of a rooster on cardboard and cut it out.
    2. Using a cardboard blank as a template where necessary, draw the details on colored paper (cardboard): head, torso, wings and tail - first fold the sheets in half so as not to waste time preparing blanks for the second side.
    3. The next stage: we cut out our blanks.
    4. Now we glue the parts made of colored paper (cardboard) onto the cardboard blank. After the cockerel has assembled into a whole picture, you can decorate it with sparkles, beads - whatever comes to mind.
    5. Make a hole in the blank, thread a ribbon and hang it on the tree.

    We recommend making this New Year's cockerel for the Christmas tree together with your children.

    You can make a similar toy from felt and also use it to decorate a Christmas tree.

    Draw the pattern by hand or use any ready-made one, for example, this one:

    Homemade cockerels made using the origami technique will look original.

    Instructions on how to make a craft from straw

    Before you start making crafts, you need to thoroughly plan the entire process. If you are a beginner creator, then choose the simplest composition for your first work. This will help you master the skills of working with straw material.

    After drawing up a plan, you need to prepare a place for creativity. It is more convenient to create on a large and flat table surface. You need to place it closer to the window, as well as provide an additional light source. The surface of the table must be covered with oilcloth to protect it from glue or scratches.

    Prepare and arrange all the necessary equipment. This could be: various scissors, a stationery knife, tweezers, an awl, an iron, pencils, glue, thread and a needle. The list can be modified, it all depends on the complexity of the selected composition.

    The next step is to prepare the base to which we will attach the straw. If the craft is flat, then fabric, plywood, or cardboard can serve as a base. And if you are planning a three-dimensional figure, then you first need to make a frame. It can be constructed from wire or wood.

    Let's start processing the straw. To make it softer, you need to pour boiling water over it. Leave for a while and the stems will soften. Afterwards, we take the material out into a wet cloth and, as straws are needed for the craft, dry them with an iron.

    Once all these points have been completed, you can proceed directly to the practical production of the craft.

    To understand how to properly make crafts from straw with your own hands, let’s carefully analyze one example of such a craft.

    pillow toy

    A difficult, but very exciting activity in making toys is creating a pillow in the form of a symbol of the year, which will delight you not only in the year of the Rooster , but much longer. You will need a pattern, fabric, filler, felt (depending on the chosen model), thread and needles. Here it's a matter of small things, we trace the pattern, sew the parts together, leaving a hole to fill the pillow with filler. We turn it inside out, put the filling inside the toy, and sew it up until the end.

    There is also a more complex plan with fabric painting - this is batik, thanks to which the pillow will acquire a bright color. After you have traced the cockerel on the fabric, paint it using special paints; they can be replaced with gouache if you mix it with PVA glue. We leave it for a day so that the paint dries and continue to finish the pillow in the shape of a rooster.

    Straw doll

    Take some straws and fold them in half. To ensure even edges, cut them using scissors. We wrap the base with thread. As a result, we get the body and head of the doll.

      To the side we make handles by analogy, marking the elbow bends on them. Using wire or toothpicks, we connect the parts to the body. The making of the doll is completed. In addition, you can make a hat and a fabric scarf, as well as draw a face.

    Cute snowflakes

    A simple but wonderful decoration in its laconism is snowflakes. Backing material... rolls left over from using toilet paper or kitchen towels. Also stock up on scissors, glue, decorative elements in the form of large rhinestones and thin fishing line. The whole process looks like this step by step:

    • we crush the sleeve, pressing it well from the edges;
    • cut the bushing into strips of equal width. The resulting elements are visually reminiscent of flower petals;
    • glue the resulting blanks together in the center so that you get a flower;
    • decorate the middle with rhinestones;
    • We thread a fishing line through one of the petals. That's it, the snowflake is ready to float near the branches of your Christmas tree.

    Beautiful flowers made from straws (or panels)

    Prepare the following tools for work:

    • wire 2 mm-20 cm;
    • purple linen fabric;
    • similar cotton threads (purple and yellowish);
    • thin ribbon;
    • container to bleach the straws.

    Stages of work:

    Place the straw in a deep container. Pour in the solution: 0.5 liters of water, hydroperite (9 tablets), ammonia (1 tsp) for 5-6 hours for uniform bleaching. You can press it down with a weight. Then rinse well and put in polyethylene for quick work.

    Flower. You need 8-10 straw tubes, cut along the stem, unfold, and smooth with a hot iron.

    We glue our strips onto white paper (preferably thin tracing paper) with PVA glue as a continuous sheet. Remove excess glue, roll with a rolling pin or put under a heavy press.

    You need to make a stencil for flowers from cardboard. Place a stencil on the reverse side, draw 12 petals and cut out. Glue 12 petals onto purple linen fabric.

    The same dense threads (twist with a rope), glue around the petal onto the fabric, leaving the “tails” at the bottom.

      After drying, cut out all the blanks.
    • You need to cut out a 10 cm circle from thick cardboard and glue 6 petals to it. It turns out to be a flower.
    • On the other side, glue 6 more petals, and they should be slightly larger than the central ones, located between them. We are waiting for it to dry completely.
    • We pierce it in the center in 2 places to tie it to the prepared wire. Cover the center nicely with straws.
    • We bend the flower beautifully and cover the wire with thread or ribbon. The flower is ready.

    You can make another flower from 1 layer (6 petals). Place 1-3 flowers in a small vase.

    You can make an oval-shaped panel and decorate the inside with a large cage of sticks. Attach 3 flowers to the “net”, tie a ribbon or twist a thin straw into a spiral. To do this, we run scissors along the fiber of the straw, a “spiral” will spin,

    Children are often asked to bring some New Year's crafts to school competitions. Make it from salt dough. A craft made from bioceramics can also be an excellent gift from children to grandparents. Moreover, this activity is so exciting that it quite claims to be a hobby.

    Before you make a toy from salt dough, you need to prepare the dough itself. To prepare the dough, use fine table salt, regular wheat flour and water in a ratio of 2:4:2, respectively. First, mix flour and salt, and then add warm water, kneading the dough thoroughly for at least 10 minutes.

    There is another recipe for making dough. In this case, take flour and salt in the same proportions, only the flour is pre-sifted. You need to take a little less than 1 1/3 cups of water.

Make a toy (you can use beads or seed beads for decoration), don’t forget to make a hole at the top. To harden the toy, it is left for 24 hours or baked in the oven. After the toy has hardened, it is painted with acrylic paints, gouache, watercolors, allowed to dry thoroughly and coated with either colorless nail polish or nitro varnish for wood. Thread a thread or ribbon through the hole. So the New Year's gift is ready.

    Crafts from cotton swabs and disks for kids

    Kids love to do things with their own hands. Together with your parents, you can make many different souvenirs and gifts from cotton swabs and disks. If kids go to kindergarten, then this is a great idea to make wonderful crafts from available materials.

    Without cutting out or inventing any fancy shapes, you get an excellent picture with snowdrifts and snowy trees.

    Cotton swabs are great for building huts, sheds, and growing snow-covered Christmas trees.

    Cut pieces from cotton pads. Draw a triangle on cardboard with your child. This will be the future Christmas tree. At the moment of creativity, you can repeat the counting, if only you learn the letters and numbers. From below we glue the branches, first further away from each other, then denser and denser. And the higher the Christmas tree, the fewer parts will be required. Have you counted how many are in each row? How many branches did you get in total?

    And here is a Christmas tree decorated with beads. We roll the cotton pads twice and fix them with glue. The base is still the same cardboard cone. Let the child come up with what kind of decoration will be on the top of the head.

    You can also make cute angels and snowmen that look like ice cream from simple cotton pads.

    For the craft you will need:

    • Cotton pads - 2 pieces of different diameters
    • Cardboard - 3 mugs
    • Wooden stick (can be used for ice cream)
    • PVA glue or glue gun
    • Decor for a snowman

    We leave two blanks of cotton pads unchanged. This will be the bottom part of the snowman. We cut the remaining two a little smaller than the previous one. We make blanks of the same diameter from cardboard. We will need it for rigidity.

    Glue the cardboard to one disk, then slightly overlap each other.

    Next, apply glue to a wooden stick and fix it on the structure so that the lower part peeks out.

    Then we close it with a second disk, glue on the eyes, a carrot nose, and be sure to put on a headdress and scarf.

    And this is a master class on making an angel for a Christmas tree. I will not describe the process in detail. It is shown in the pictures. The only thing is, if you don’t have a ready-made large bead, you can use either white plasticine or salt dough to make the head.

We take foam plastic balls as a base and, having cut the sticks on both sides, often stick the plastic side into the ball. You will need a lot of them, as well as patience. To make black eyes and a smile, you need to first dip the sticks with a cotton tip into the paint.

    New Year's decorations made from cotton pads look very original. Make the fabric layer in different colors and sew it as shown in the picture.

    Finally, a couple more ideas with cotton pads.

    As it turned out, discs and sticks are a very versatile material and can be useful not only for cosmetic purposes.
