Christmas Crafts for Tweens & Teens

50+ simple & easy DIY Christmas tree ornaments for kids, tweens, and teens - These homemade crafts include everything from pictures to paint to popsicle sticks to pipe cleaners to beads and, of course, glitter. They are a fun way to celebrate Xmas with your children, and they will make adorable decorations on your tree or great gifts for the grandparents!

I have previously shared big lists of homemade Christmas ornaments that toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary school kids can make.

These lists have been wildly popular, but they no longer appeal to my 11-year-old. She still loves to craft and make ornaments for our tree, especially when I'm crafting alongside her, but she's not really interested in paper angels or dyed pasta garlands anymore. She loves the hot glue gun and spray paint and detailed projects, so I have included more intricate crafts below, as well as a few old favorites.

Our newer ornaments and projects are at the bottom of the list, and the crafts get increasingly complex from the top down.
