Looking for a gift for the kids in your life that’s not just another toy? Maybe something to inspire their creativity? I’ve teamed up with KLUTZ as part of a sponsored #KLUTZhandmade holiday campaign to bring you some great gift ideas, along with an AWESOME giveaway! The books are filled with fun crafts and handmade gift ideas, so they really are the gift that keeps on giving! Kids love creating and they will love making special gifts for their friends & family (and themselves ;))!
We received the books shown above! Aren’t they SO fun? We’re hanging on to the Star Wars Flyers book as a Christmas gift for our boys (and how perfect will that be with the new movie coming out around Christmas)?! But, we dove right in to the other KLUTZ craft books and had so much fun looking through them! Then, we decided to make one of the projects!
The boys LOVE making things with pipe cleaners, so we started with the Twisted Critters book! Everything in the book is adorable! We found a cute little craft that is supposed to be a moose, but we decided to turn him into a reindeer for the holidays! It can be a little finger puppet or you could turn it into an ornament for the tree! So fun!

About the Klutz Holiday Handmade Books
Shrink & Link Jewelry
With more than 2 million Shrink Art Jewelry and Shrinky Dinks books in print, we at Klutz are pretty much shrink plastic experts. But when it’s as easy as tracing, cutting, and baking . . . you can become a shrink art expert too! Even if you’re totally new to this whole shrink art thing, our step-by-step instructions will have your friends admiring your “did-you-really-make-that?!” jewelry in no time.
This is the only book out there that lets you make reusable, transferable, dimensional pendants and attach them to a ring or a necklace. With Shrink and Link Jewelry, you can create brilliant shrink art charms from over 50 traceable designs – and then mix and match them for a limitless wardrobe of unique, colorful jewelry!
Make Glitter Clay Charms
Design your own bracelet with itty-bitty glittery charms! As a follow-up to our beloved bestseller Make Clay Charms, this book comes with 35 new charm designs, new clay colors, and two packets of accent glitter to make your charms sparkle and shine.
Starting with a few basic shapes and easy-to-mold clay, you can sculpt mini food, tiny aliens and robots, pocket-sized unicorns, and dozens of other cuties that you can customize with extra personality. Just pop your creations in the oven to set (with an adult’s help, of course), use our special glaze to give them polish and add as much glitter as you want, then attach them to the included bracelet. Each project has clear instructions and a true-to-life sizing guide to help you craft your own glitter charms.
Nothing is cooler than a look that’s unmistakably you. Luckily, when it comes to sprucing up your stuff, Pop Collage has you covered (pun intended). We make collages simple with our crystal-clear instructions and everything you need to get started.
Learn to tear, cut, hole-punch, and layer the included Pop Pages in unexpected ways. It’s a no-mistake, anything-goes activity-chaos encouraged. Tackle the 10 projects included in the book like paper bowls, a bookmark, an owl, an accessory tray, a frame, and more. Then get inspired with ideas from the book so you can make anything pop!
String art used to be just for squares (and triangles and other geometric shapes), but our new string art system opens up a whole new world of possibilities. From cute critters to fashionable flowers to trendy typography, kids can make everything in the book after learning just three simple methods.
The final results may look intricate, but we include an only-from-Klutz pin-pushing tool so even a string-art newbie can create awesome art with this classic craft. And our pin-pusher solves string art’s prickliest problems by making sure that every pin goes in straight and at the same height. With instructions for 20 projects and enough materials for six, kids will be making amazing art in no time.
Cozy knit accessories are right at your fingertips-literally! Make scarves, hats, jewelry, cat ear headbands, boot toppers, and much more with easy instructions for 15 projects. Even if you’ve never knit a stitch before, you’ll be amazed by what you can make without needles. And with 200 yards of metallic-sparkle yarn right in the box, you can whip up 2 extra-large scarves or several smaller projects.
How do you finger knit? Simply weave the yarn back and forth between your fingers, and then pick up the loops. Really, it’s that easy! When you’re ready to take a break, use the handy stitch holder until it’s time to continue. Then braid, fold, wrap, or tie your finger-knit chains into cool creations, such as a flower-embellished scarf, a beaded necklace, or a boho-style fringe. Everything you need comes with the book (fingertips not included).
Which book would your kids like the best?
