10 Craft Ideas To Do With Christmas Lights Templates
Christmas light templates are extremely versatile, and you can use them for virtually any kind of craft.
Try some of the 10 fun, affordable, and engaging craft activities outlined below.
1. Holiday Classroom Fun
To have some holiday fun, give each child two simple, colored Christmas light templates and a permanent magic marker.
Once they are cut out, the youngsters should write their name in one and what they want most for Christmas in the other.
These can then be strung onto a long piece of yarn or twine and hung up in the classroom.
For extra fun, bells or other Christmas ornaments can be hung in between the Christmas light cutouts.
2. Make a Homemade Nightlight
A Christmas light globe template is perfect for this craft. Give your youngster an ordinary nightlight from any discount store.
When a Christmas light template is selected, it should be printed, cut out, and carefully glued to the front of the nightlight with craft glue.
Night light bulbs are not hot enough to affect the paper.
Add glitter or a bit of fluorescent paint, and when the lights go out, your youngster has a glowing Christmas globe as a nightlight!
3. A Homemade Christmas Tree Topper
You can make a terrific tree topper quickly and easily with a star Christmas light template. Choose a full page, rounded star, and cut it out.
The star can be turned upside down, and the part featuring its fixture can be glued to the inside of an empty bathroom tissue roll.
The roll should be laminated with green construction paper. This makes the perfect cone to slide the star down on the tree’s uppermost branch.
You now have a bright Christmas tree topper.
4. Decorate a Window
Anyone can have fun with this great craft. Choose large, colored Christmas light templates and paint the top fixture with silver craft paint.
Next, tear off swatches of tissue paper in the same color as the light, and glue these to their surface to give them a great texture.
Cut them out, and use non-damaging wall putty to place them all around the window frame for a colorful Christmas window!
5. Make a Unique Christmas Tree Ornament
To start this fun craft, roll up a large piece of green poster board into a cone shape. This is your “tree.”
Next, print and cut out several sheets of small, colored Christmas tree lights in the preferred shape.
Using just a bit of krazy glue or rubber cement, “decorate” the tree for an instant tabletop or corner table holiday decoration.
6. Pointy Star Light to Brighten up the Room
Use a large, pointy star Christmas light template for this craft, and begin by gluing sequins or craft gems all around the star’s inner border.
Fill in the remainder with gold glitter, and add a gold or yellow craft pom-pom to each point of the star.
Punch a hole in the top of the cutout in which to thread a thick piece of green or red yarn. Hang this shiny star in a doorway to brighten up the room for the holidays.
7. Christmas Wish Jar
This easy craft starts with an ordinary Mason jar. Youngsters can write down their Christmas wishes and put them in the jar.
Spray the outside with green or red paint to make it festive, and print several sheets of small Christmas lights in various colors and shapes.
Use craft glue to decorate the jar with the colorful cutouts, and add a big red bow at the top!
8. Week 3D Art
This fun craft is great for youngsters who want to make keepsakes for mom or dad.
Give each child a white sheet of small, candle Christmas lights. They can decorate these however they’d like and cut them out.
Have the youngsters paste two long pipe cleaners to the poster board horizontally, one on top of the other. Rubber cement works best for this.
The Christmas light cutouts can then be added, making it look like they are hanging from the pipe cleaners, just like real Christmas lights!

This enjoyable craft makes a terrific classroom activity before the holidays. Give the youngsters sheets of small globe Christmas lights in various colors.
With markers, they can decorate the lights like emojis. Next, each child should have a large globe Christmas light to color and cut out.
The youngster should write a Christmas message inside the large cutout and then string the small ones underneath in a vertical pattern like a wind chime.
Red and green curling ribbons can be added, and the youngsters have original emoji Christmas art.
