No Sew Reindeer Hobby Horse.
I used a lot of mops for the gnome's beard so I had several mop handles left over. Hobby "Horses" were my solution. No Pattern. No Sew !! I stuffed the sock with polyfil and added a folded wire coat hanger minus the hook, inside so I could bend his head. Made sure I wrapped and glued any possible sharp edges and inserted mop handle. Felt antlers I did use a make shift pattern I googled antler clipart and found one I liked. Cut 4 and glued the seams and stuffed a little polyfill inside. Felt ears I just used triangle pieces of felt I gathered at one end and glued on. Hat is Dollar Tree hat, I cut to fit around ears and antlers, used extras for around his neck. Eyes are buttons I added white paint for gleams. Nose is a painted ping pong ball. Then just added some twine and bells for reins. I am seeing actual Hobby HORSES in my future ... along with unicorns, dragons etc ... Yea I have a Lot of mop handles :D

Dollar Tree Crafts
DIY Jack Skellington Shelf Sitter
Jack is made similiar to the no sew gnomes only I added a sytrofoam ball covered with a sock for his head
Pull Apart Cupcakes
These are bigger then they look here.They'd make great wall or door decorations
I just painted this one traditional and added the googley eyes
This one I Mod Podged Burlap to his hat and painted him more Rustic
The lanterns were red and green plastic and looked pretty cheap. I painted them with metallic paint and added some accents
Paint and Trim add so much to Dollar Tree's battery operated candles
Several of my ideas I modify things I've found online. Lots of people are doing crafts from Dollar Tree items, Some really cool stuff made from great DT finds. I however never seem to get my hands on the "Good Stuff"
I wanted to do Christmas Trees, YEP small tabletop trees were GONE. I couldn't even find the styrofoam tree forms.
However, my DT had a bazillion of the Metallic trees, no one else seemed to want.
If you unravel the tinsel from these trees, you get a handy plastic tree form
Wrap the tree form with material ( I used DT scarves) or burlap or jute/twine. Decorate with bows, berries, ribbon or just leave them plain,
Leave the tinsel and add a Silly Face. Kids will love it.
No Sew Tapestry Pillows
Glue the edges of two DT tapestry placemats together, right sides out. These have finished edges so no need to flip inside out, leaving a spot open to stuff. Stuff with polyfil/stuffing (I used an old pillow I tore apart) and glue closed. I used two different placemats for 1 pillow and made 2 pillows. I can use both pillows with differents sides showing in a chair or I can used the same image side out on each side of a couch and switch the look throughout the month. (Basically giving me what appears to be 2 different sets)
Snowman Gift Wrapping
Top Box/Head - Candies or Treats
2nd Box/Body - Clothes
3rd Box/Bottom - Toy or Fun Stuff
This is a Great way to keep things even.
Works for the Older "Kids" too
Gift Wrapping and Exchanges
White Elephant Gift
Add a truck and ears to the No Sew Snowman and you have your White Elephant gift.
I Hope Santa Brings Me ...
Players sit in a circle. The first player starts and says, “I hope Santa Claus brings me __________” filling in the blank with whatever present they choose. It can be realistic or outrageous . The person to the left of the starter(clockwise) goes next. They will say, ” I hope Santa Claus brings me a (whatever the first player said and __________” filling in the blank with whatever they choose. This continues moving left around the circle with each person repeating what the previous person said and adding an additional present from Santa until someone forgets a present, messes up the order or in some way makes a mistake. That person is out and leaves the circle. The person to the left of the person that is now out starts the game over again from scratch. Continue playing and eliminating players until only one person remains. That person is a very deserving winner.
Guess How Many Ornaments
Count the number of ornaments on your Christmas tree and have your guests write down their guess as to how many there are.
The person who has the closest guess is the winner.
Pass out a Candy Cane or a small token to each of your guests as they arrive. When all your guests have arrive the game starts. Inform them from that point forward they can not say the word Present/Presents. If a player gets caught saying the word whoever catches them gets their candy cane/token and they are out. The game is continued through out the party with players losing one candy/token cane each time they say Present. Whoever has the most when the game ends wins.
Use "Santa" "Christmas" or any other Holiday word instead of Presents
Dollar Tree usually has Holiday Hats or Ties you could use as tokens. Players must wear all the tokens they've collected. The person leading the game will be well accessorized :D
Fill a Christmas Stocking with an assortment of wrapped gifts, candy, candles etc and tape or pin it closed. Have your guests write down their guess as to how many items are inside by site only no touching it. The one who guesses the closest wins the filled stocking.
If there is a tie you can have a “tie breaker” round. Have the tied players taking turns naming one thing they think is inside the stocking. The first one who guesses an item inside wins.
Christmas Card Toss
Get about 10-12 holiday cards. Place a good sized basket, such as a laundry basket, in the middle of the room about 6 feet away from the players. Have each player take a turn and try to toss the Christmas cards into the basket one by one. This is much harder than it seems at first, you will be surprised how those cards fly about!
The winner is the one who gets the most cards in the basket after everyone has had a turn. For a tie have the tying players shoot 4-5 more cards each and the one with the most in the basket wins.
Guess The Candy Game
Wrap and number several boxes of Movie Theater Candy and have your guests indentify them by shaking the boxes.
The person who guesses the most correct is the winner
Add a Cotton Ball* each day leading up til Christmas. When Santa's beard is complete he is ready to make his appearance.
*I cut the cottonballs in half
Give a Christmas Match Sheet to everyone.
Pick 1 player to be “It” have everyone else fill in the blanks by guessing what the “It” person wrote.
Partner up with 2 player teams. One player fills in the blanks, the partner tries to match what they believe their partner wrote.
The most matches wins
