A Christmas Kitchen Celebration
We are ready for a Christmas Kitchen Celebration with tabletop Christmas trees, Christmas florals, wreaths in the window, a Christmas cookie jar, and cookies!
I had so much fun decorating our Christmas kitchen using so many wonderful items from JOANN. Everything looks so festive and the new decor has inspired me to start our holiday baking!

Decorating a Christmas Kitchen
I came up with four DIYs to decorate our Christmas kitchen. As usual, I totally went overboard!
But I couldn’t help it.
As I wandered down the aisles at JOANN, I saw so many projects I wanted to make! I created four very fun DIYs: a Christmas cookies tin with homemade sugar cookies, Christmas tabletop trees, Christmas window decorations (wreaths), and a Christmas cookie jar.
Christmas Cookies Tin with Homemade Sugar Cookies
I make Christmas sugar cookies every year. It is a tradition in our house and they do take a bit of time to make. But it’s totally worth it. This year I am going to gift some of our homemade Christmas cookies.
I found the best selection of Christmas cookie tins at Joann and everything else I need to make the tins look very festive.
- Christmas glass Cookbook Ornament
- Christmas tins
- Round Tin with Window Wreath
- Christmas Ribbon Red Dots on White
These Christmas cookie tins are great for gifts.
I bought some great baking and cookie decorating tools. I found this mega baking sheet, Meringue powder, decorating bags, and colorings to help me bake and decorate my cookies.
How to Make Royal Icing Cookies
- one – I made my favorite sugar cookie recipe and used some of the many Christmas cookie cutters I own.
- two – Bake the cookies, being sure not to over cook them.
- three – Mix up the Royal icing and frost. You can find my recipe and tutorial to decorate cookies with royal icing here.
- four – Wrap up the cookies in the tin. Add some ribbon and an ornament that matches the recipients interests!

Christmas Table Top Trees
I wanted to make something fun for the kitchen and I knew I could come up with a nice tabletop tree design. When I was walking the aisles at JOANN, I found green styrofoam cones and some Air Dry Clay. With some white paint and glitter, I made these trees! Aren’t they festive?
How to Make Christmas TableTop Trees
- one – Gather your supplies (see list below)
- two – Cut out a lot of circles in the clay using the cutter set listed below.
- three – Cut each small clay circle in half.
- four – While the clay is still wet, place glue on the flat side of the circle and pin to the styrofoam cone. (In hindsight, I probaly should have painted the cone white first. It would have made the painting so much easier!)
- five – Here you can see the random designs I created for the clay.
- six – Let dry overnight and remove the pins. Cover with a thick coat of the paint.
- seven – Be sure to use thick paint so it cover the styrofoam. Let dry.
- eight – Place the glue in a bowl and thin it a bit with water. Cover the tree and sprinkle with glitter. Let dry.
Materials used to make the trees.
- Green Cone 15″
- Green Cone 12″
- Circle Cutter Set
- Air Dry Clay
- Acrylic Paint
- Tacky Glue
- Steel Sequin Pins
- Craft Glitter

Christmas Window Decorations
I love putting wreaths in the windows in our home during the holidays. These two wreaths look amazing in our kitchen. I embellished my own wreath or you can make your own. It is so easy to do! Just buy some floral picks and stick them in the wreath. It takes about five minutes!
To make this wreath I used
Here are some of my favorite wreaths available at JOANN.
Christmas Cookie Jar
I thought it would be fun to make a personalized cookie jar. Of course, I used a funny message for mine, but think how great a personalized cookie jar would make as a holiday gift!
How to Make Your Own Christmas Cookie Jar
To make this adorable cookie jar I designed the lettering on my Cricut Maker machine and cut it out with Permanent Red Vinyl. I found a wonderful glass cookie jar at JOANN and added the letting. Isn’t this adorable?

Christmas Village Houses
I love these Christmas village houses. They light up and look so great on any surface in your home!
I love adding faux florals all over our home. I use my holiday florals over and over every year. Here are the new ones I found this year.
