At the beginning of December, I got together with my Team Creative Craft besties, Laura of Me and My INKlings, and Lindsay of Artsy-Fartsy Mama to host a Craft-A-Thon for Last Minute Christmas Crafts. We were honored to partner with ten fabulous companies to share some awesome ideas for Christmas Crafting with Friends this holiday season and all year long! Creativity and friendship go hand and hand.

Crafting with Friends and Therm-O-Web
My crafty bestie, Laura Kelly developed an entire line of Clear Stamps, Transfer Foils, and Patterned Toner Papers with Therm-O-Web this year, so we always LOVE creating with these fun items. Check out my Trio of 5 Minute Holiday Gift Wrap and other ideas as well.
Party Crafting with Unicorn Spit from Eclectic Products
Eclectic Products, the makers of E6000, also makes the amazing and colorful Unicorn Spit, a gel stain and stain all in one product. Water down the Unicorn Spit, and add it to some spray bottles from Dollar Tree to design fun paint splatter papers and then create Festive Paper Party Poppers for Christmas Crafting with Friends over the holidays!

This new to me Gem-Tac Permanent Glue from Beacon Adhesives is perfect for a fun and funky trio of embellished Christmas ornaments. Check out my DIY Sprinkle Cupcake and Ice Cream Cone Ornaments along with a Rainbow Sprinkled Donut by Laura and an Ugly Christmas Sweater-inspired ornament from Lindsay. Wonderful for Christmas Crafting with Friends.
Crafting for Christmas with Anchor Embroidery Floss Spools
Are you ready for no more tangled skeins and floss that stays neat and tidy? I know I was super excited to receive a few of the new Anchor® Embroidery Floss Spools. The floss rolls smoothly off the spool and doesn’t tangle or knot when pulling out a length to work with. Storage is neat and tidy with spools, no more piles of tangled floss. Scroll down to see the festive Embroidered Felt Gingerbread House Ornament that I created and download the FREE printable pattern file.
Crafting with Friends and ColorShot Spray Paint
We received six cans of ColorShot spray paint, now available at Wal-Mart, and we had a really fun time experimenting with it. The colors are so beautiful and vibrant. Laura is sharing a super cute winter Rainbow of Houses with Matching Bottle Brush Trees over at her blog Me and My INKlings.
Crafting with Hemptique for Christmas
Hemptique offers a huge selection of Hemp Cord, Hemp Twine, and Baker's Twine in a variety of rainbow colors. I am sharing Three Quick and Easy Gift Wrapping Ideas over at this post. And while you are there, check out Laura's Christmas Cars and Lindsay's String Art projects. Ideal for Christmas Crafting with Friends.
Christmas Crafting with Fast Cast from ETI Resin
I had never worked with Fast Cast from ETI Resin before, but now I am addicted! Quick and easy, the Fast Cast sets up in about 10 minutes instead of having to wait up to 24 hours. Using silicone molds, and help from Lindsay, I created a fun and festive set of Easy Resin Christmas Ornaments, which are quick and easy to color with acrylic craft paint.
Snow Globe Crafting with Glasslets from Fairfield
Y’all know that I am all about quick and easy crafting. Plus I love using traditional craft items in unique ways. My 5 Minute Snow Globe Ornament covers both of these, which makes me ridiculously HAPPY! Glasslets from Fairfield are microbeads of pure glass that are perfect for snow globes of any type. A great project for Christmas Crafting with Friends.
Christmas Crafting with Friends is the BEST!

Laura of Me and My INKlings has the biggest heart, the most creative spirit, and just wrote a book Kindness on Purpose, and makes the cutest stickers, notepads, and cards in her online shop! Plus a new craft line with Therm-O-Web.

Team Creative Crafts Weekly Linky Party
Each week Team Creative Crafts shares a new Linky Party. It is a place on all three of our blogs where others can share their inspirational ideas and creative projects. We select our favorite projects from the submissions and feature them the following week in the next Linky Party. It is a great way to connect with other craft and recipe bloggers. It gives them a platform to spread their creativity and we love doing it!
Team Creative Crafts Collaborations
Each month we sponsor a themed collaboration with12 of our talented blogger friends. This gives the three of us as well as all the others the opportunity to create content that is relevant and trendy for our audiences in a group of ideas. Offering selections of ideas based on a theme is supportive to our readers when they are looking to create projects based on a creative topic, a holiday, celebration, or seasonal theme.
Team Creative Crafts Craft-A-Thon
Several times a year we get together and hold a Craft-A-Thon which provides us with the opportunity to share our creativity, laughter, and stories in person. These days are worth their weight in gold (or better yet — craft supplies) because we truly have such a wonderful time together. We select our favorite companies that we work with and take the opportunity to feature a product of their choice. It gives Laura, Lindsay, and me some time to mastermind, brainstorm, and play together. To be totally honest, they are my favorite weeks of the year. The perfect time for Christmas Crafting with Friends.
Too busy to make these projects right now? Pin it for later! I'd love for you to pin these projects to your favorite craft board on Pinterest and then it’ll be waiting for you when you’re ready.
Thanks for stopping by!
