Make your winter gifts super-special this year with a handmade touch!

Our winter holiday DIY kits are like our annual “Make It Merry” events—all in a bag! We’ve included a family-size sampler of activities and decorations, made with our state-of-the-art fabrication tools—for your whole family to enjoy whether you are celebrating under one roof or gathering on a video call.

Each kit contains multiple mixed-media ornament projects including ones to paint, fold and assemble, or mold. There’s even a biosphere ornament where you can plant your own ecosystem!

We’re also including materials from one of our most popular Holiday Hub workshops on printing your own gift wrap. And, our Metal & Woodshop foreman included a cool DIY sleigh prop project!
