Christmas Words To Use In Craft Projects

There are so many words to describe Christmas and so many ways to use these words in craft projects. However, sometimes when trying to come up with Christmas words or phrases to use, the old mind kind of goes blank. That is why I have come up with a list of popular Christmas words to put on yours signs, ornaments, or gift projects. Hopefully this guide will get your mind thinking creatively!

Popular Christmas Words

I’ve broken down lists of words or phrases that would be particularly helpful for a certain craft project. However, you may find the perfect word or phrase, for your project, in a different category than what I put the words in. The nice thing is that with all Christmas words and phrases listed, you should be able to find just what you want to use.

Christmas Words For Coasters

The other day, I was trying to think of some festive words to put on some gift coasters that I was making. I simply wanted to add a word or phrase to coasters that I was decorating for Christmas. Then, I figured that if you are using a coaster, you are having some sort of drink. So, for my coaster project, I wanted to use winter or Christmas words that related to drinking.

Christmas words on coasters

To get these Christmas words onto coasters, I used rub off letters. It’s a super easy way to add words. Other ideas for transferring words onto coasters are with paint, stencils, stickers or sharpies. Then, just seal the letters with varnish, spray sealer, or Mod Podge.
