Can you believe it’s time to think about the holidays?! The craft stores already have their holiday goods out, so it’s a good time to share my teen craft gift guide.
I know. You’re thinking, what the heck? It’s only October, it’s too early to think about Christmas, right? Well…as we all know, this year has been an unusual year. The dreaded virus has pushed many stores to rethink their Black Friday sales and many won’t even have a Black Friday, but rather month long sales. On top of that, most people will be shopping online, which means you NEED to shop much earlier since mail delivery is taking longer and products are slow to get restocked, if at all.
Festive Christmas Ideas
If you’re a little worried now, don’t fret because this post is also the kick-off of the Festive Christmas Event! I’ve teamed up with a group of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season. You will find new ideas every Monday and Wednesday between Oct. 19th through Nov. 18th. We will be sharing some holiday cookie ideas, party games, handmade gifts, ornament crafting, and Christmas movies family fun. There will also be breakfast recipes and as always, decorated Christmas Trees!
New this year is Gift Guides.We are right there with you shopping from home due to the virus and we understand how hard that can be so we have been busy little Elves doing tons of research to create fabulous Gift Guides to help you with your holiday shopping. Scroll down to find all the gift guide ideas linked at the end and more of my teen picked gift guides.

Teen Craft Gift Guide 2020
Get those creative juices flowing with these teen craft gift guide ideas. These craft picks came from my teen daughter and reflects the things she has tried or would like to try.
If buying a UV resin kit, I highly recommend a UV light to help speed up curing. This isn't a must, as UV resin can be cured in sunlight. A UV light helps keep dust off the resin and weather is not a factor when making UV resin items.
A base kit of acrylic paint colors to create various works of art. Paint brushes and art canvas/paper will need to bought separately. FYI - Best to buy online as craft stores are wiped clean of paints. Seriously, the shelves are bare.
