We used to live in South Africa where Christmas is associated with hot sun, swim and barbeque. We always thought snowmen and reindeer were quite strange Christmas ideas!

But now we live in Switzerland and we love to embrace the snow and winter holiday ideas. And, therefore we share our Christmas snowman cards and three more Christmas tree cards made for our South African families!

Time to be Creative!

Making these DIY Christmas cards is super easy and fun.

And, there is only one Christmas card idea rule: There are no rules!

Everyone can color and embellish the way they want. This does not only nurture creative minds but also produce various translations of the same idea! The brilliant power of freestyle creativeness!

Snowman Christmas Cards

Cute Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

This DIY card is a perfect Christmas craft project for the kids. Depending on their age, you can help them cut the various pieces and then let them put everything together by themselves. Or, when they are old enough, let them do the cutting as well.

What you need

The best part is, you probably have most of the materials you need at home already. And, if you need some of the less common materials at an affordable price, just click the item in the list below to view options.

To help you source only the best quality products, I will recommend one product with each card. These recommended products I use myself and cannot imagine crafting without! And, I am sure you will love them just as much as me!

Hope this will help you source the best products to create your own Christmas cards.

Materials Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

My Product Recommendation Googly Eyes

This Christmas card only came alive after we added the googly plastic eyes! Yes, you can draw the eyes or add stickers. But, like with many other craft projects, the plastic eyes added another dimension and made the snowman card so much more special. Give it a try!

I always buy them in big amounts and in different sizes at a very affordable price, so we have them at hand for any project we are doing. You will enjoy having them at hand to create even more awesome art pieces.

Creating your Snowman

Fold white cardstock in half. You can use any size but standard A4 works well. Draw three circles from top to bottom, small to big, all touching sides. You can draw the circles by hand, trace from a round object or print them.

The next step is to cut around your circles’ outline. Make sure to leave the top part attached on the fold. See picture arrow below.  Don’t cut through, otherwise, you will have two snowmen instead of an opening card!

Dressing and Decorating your Snowman

The suggestions below will guide you creating a beautiful card but do not be scared to add your own personal touches. And, give the kids free reign.

Remember No Rules!

Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideas

Christmas Snowman Arms

Cut two arms with fingers from your textured stock. Glue to the back of your card, just above the middle of the second circle. Try them in different positions and at different angles for extra fun.

Christmas Snowman Hat

Design Christmas card ideas with crafts for kids. Do your own homemade Christmas card this year. See how now! #christmascardideas #christmascards #crafts for kids #homemadecards #christmasideasYou can either cut the shape of a hat freehand or draw one with a pencil on the back of your colored stock of choice and then cut out.

Use your glue stick to attach the hat to the front of your snowman.

Place the hats on your cards at different angles to create cute variation.

Decorate your hat with feathers, embellishments, flowers or any decoration you prefer.

Top Tip

I always use a good quality pencil in a similar color to the stock card to add shadow and accentuate curves and lines. You will be amazed at the difference this small action makes to your final product.

Christmas Snowman Face

  • Stick two googly eyes on the face.
  • Use an orange stock card to cut a nose in a carrot shape and stick to the middle of the face. Highlight with an orange pencil.
  • Optional: use a red pencil to draw a little smiley mouth. My kids said that a Christmas snowman has to be friendly and that’s why we drew the smileys!

Christmas Snowman Buttons and Scarf

No snowman is complete without a scarf and buttons!

  • tie a short piece of colored ribbon around the neck
  • add two or more fun buttons to the body.

Add a Christmas Message

Your Christmas Snowman card is now complete. Add a personal message inside and impress friend and family with your own DIY card.

This is another great card the kids can do by themselves.

What you need

Christmas card ideas for kids. Great craft the kids can do for Christmas. Check it out now. #christmasideas #christmascard #christmascrafts #kidscrafts #carddiy

  • colored stock card
  • strips of colored paper
    • various colors, cut in half to one cm width strips of various lengths ranging from 2 to 7 cm
    • we used gummed paper to make it even easier but standard paper and a glue stick gives the same effect
  • stickers and embellishments
  • card stock

My Product Recommendation Gummed Paper

I love gummed paper! We use it very often. For little hands, it is much easier to wet the back and stick, than to work with a glue stick. The kids also enjoy working with it. Few things better than getting to wet paper with a finger! And, it comes in all different colors and sizes. This is our favorite one. Check it out!

Creating your Christmas Tree card

Cut and fold cardstock to create a card with a size of your choice. The kids simply arranged the strips from bottom to top in decreasing size order to create a tree.

Place a wider piece at the bottom to create a bottom for your tree. Then stick your stickers and embellishments onto the tree. We also added a colored stick to the top of the bottom piece to add extra dimension.

Complete with a shiny star sticker at the top.

My Product Recommendation  Fine Liner Pens

The first thing I reach for when we start making is cards is my fine liner pens. You will love drawing with these pens! They are great to accentuate fine lines and add delicate touches. You should try them in all colors and see why I use them all the time.

Modern Christmas card ideas.. Beautiful Christmas DIY. Check it out now. #christmasideas #christmascard #christmascrafts #kidscrafts #carddiyFor these cards, I chose to use only silver and turquoise – my favorite color!

But you can make a similar card in rainbow colors, or any color of your choice, like this one, with red accents.

*Original inspiration: here

Create your modern Christmas Tree Card

Use your thin black pen to draw the Christmas tree free hand and embellish with gems and stars. As many or as little as you want! With the colored pencil, I added small accent colors in a circular shape on the line.

Top Tip

Lightly pencil draw a triangle where you want your tree to be. Then do the doodle in the triangle to ensure a proper tree shape. I recommend you try doodle shape on a piece of paper before attempting it on your card.

The first one or two I drew, didn’t quite resemble a tree …

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations

Unicorn Birthday Party Invitations with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinataLike any party, we started the party arrangements by printing invitations. I decided to keep it simple, and created a powerpoint slide with rainbow, unicorn, and balloons. Then, simply added all the what and when details.

We printed the invitations out and stuck the printed image on a beautiful cardstock. Inside an envelope, it went and ready for hand out. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

We decorated a dreamy table with soft pink, blues and greens, and a unicorn re-usable tablecloth. My daughter chose these pretty unicorn plates and napkins.

If you want to add some more decorations, check out this beautiful free printable banner. 

Unicorn Birthday Party Outfit

No party is without dressing up and that’s why we made some rainbow unicorn horns for every guest!

We made a horn for each friend and they sure love wearing them. I added a bit more ribbon to the horn for our guest of honor!

Not up for sewing a tutu, I also love these personalized tutu and rainbow tutu skirts.

No princess outfit is however complete without a crown. So we added some sparkly beads to a felt crown and made sure she can wear it together with the unicorn horn.

Not up to making your own, check out this beautiful unicorn headband.

Unicorn Birthday Party Cake

Baking the cake is always one of my favorite parts of arranging a party. I love working with fondant icing and creating this coach with a princess and a unicorn was lots of fun.

Unicorn Birthday Party Treats

We made little unicorn faces from marshmallows and it was a super treat. You can find a step by step tutorial on how to make similar unicorn treats from The decorated cookie.

Unicorn treats for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

I simply added a white marshmallow to a straw and used a food pen to create eyes. The horn, ears, and stars were made from fondant icing and stuck onto the marshmallow using a little sugar paste.

So easy and yet so cute! This is one of my favorite suppliers of soft, fresh fondant icing.

Unicorn Birthday Party Pinata

I made the first pinata 2 years ago, and since then it is the first thing my kids ask for when we plan their birthdays. Having a pinata not only adds to your party decorations but also creates another activity and allows the kids to play with the toys and take it home. Unicorn Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata We always fill the pinata not only with sweets but also with a lot of small toys as I am not a fan of having too many sweets around … Just make sure the toys you add won’t break when falling on the ground.

Unicorn Birthday Party Activities

Doing a fun activity is always a big part of our parties. Giving the kids a chance to create something to remind them of the awesome party they had.  For the unicorn birthday party, we decided to paint unicorn tote bags and make dream catchers.

I found these unicorn tote bags at a local store and the kids used acrylic paint to color them. You can easily buy or sew plain tote bags and trace unicorn pictures on them to create the same thing.

For the dream catcher, I cut the hoof shape from a paper plate, added a string at the top and punched holes at the bottom. The girls could then decorate their own with beads, crystals, ribbons, shapes, and feathers.

Unicorn Birthday Party Favors and Thank You Cards

The best part of any party is always leaving the kids with a little surprise to take home and remember the magic. Each little princess received a string bag, unicorn plush toy and a unicorn crayon. They sure loved it! Depending on your budget, you can make the party favors as big or small as you want.

Here are a couple of affordable options for a unicorn plush toy

Unicorn Birthday Party Games

We played a lot of unicorn party games including Pass a Parcel and Musical Statues. And, who doesn`t love the old – pin a tail – game? And the best part of having a unicorn party, the old time favorite becomes  – pin a rainbow horn! So much more magical!

Unicorn games for Birthday Party with unicorn costume, birthday invitation, treats, unicorn cake, birthday games and birthday favors. #unicornparty #birthdayparty #birthdayfavors #unicorncake #pinata

I simply cut rainbow unicorn horn shapes, drew a unicorn on a large poster and gave it some color. We stuck it on the wall and the kids were blindfolded trying to pin the horn in the perfect position. Loads of fun!

Gifts for little Unicorn Lover

I had so much fun looking for the perfect gift for my daughter and would love to share some of the most beautiful unicorn things I found

The Result: A Happy Daughter

We created an awesome unicorn birthday party and made everything ourselves. Arranging and preparing all the different items do take time. But, it also makes it so much more special and memorable.

My best Birthday Party Tip

Ask a friend to take as many pictures as possible. You will be too busy running around and organizing things. And, your daughter will be too busy having fun to take everything in.

There are few things as precious as sharing the awesome moments afterward by looking at photos together. You will both get to relive the magic again and again!

Discover the best learning toys for kids at different developmental stages

I hope you found some inspiration for your next unicorn birthday party. Leave a comment and let me know your favorite unicorn idea. And, remember to pin and save for later!
