Isn't it fun to make Christmas crafts!? It's even more fun crafting with kids! Most kid crafts don't last long as most are made with construction paper and may only last for one holiday season. What about making some crafts that you can use every holiday season and on a budget? How about making DIY easy Christmas window clings? All you need is fabric paints, parchment paper and templates!

Of course if you draw well or you like to create your own designs you don't need templates.
