The holidays are a special time full of magic and cheer. When it comes to spreading Christmas cheer during this festive season, a few homemade DIY crafts are always a popular way to add to the magic. With our suggestions for Christmas foam crafts, make this holiday season merry and bright!
- Snowman Foam Sack Chairs
When it comes to Christmas foam crafts, you want projects that are fun and easy while adding to the overall festive vibe. An easy way to add something fun to your home is to create snowman foam sack chairs with foam. This is not only easy and fun, but it will also give you more seating options in your home for the holidays when family comes to visit. To create this fun seating option with a snowy touch, create foam bag sacks with a white cover in several sizes. You want to have a bigger base for the body, smaller sacks for the upper body and head, and then stack them on top of each other to create a life-sized snowman. You can add some buttons and a face out of fabric and Velcro for a friendly snowman sure to liven up any room. When you need the seats, simply disassemble the snowman, and put him back together when done! This is a fun way to decorate while still adding a functional element. Best of all, you can use the foam bean bag chairs the rest of the year as well for a playroom or child’s room.
- Christmas Ornament Foam Sack Chairs
Another fun option with foam for the holidays is to make Christmas ornament foam sack chairs. This is similar to the snowman option above but with more color! To create these fun and festive seats, use foam sack chairs but make sure the colors are themed for ornaments so red and green or blue and white if you are doing a winter wonderland theme. Aside from the covers being color-coordinated to your theme for the season, you will need to make it clear they are giant ornaments and not just foam sacks. With the use of felt, Velcro, and Styrofoam, you can easily create the ornament’s cap as well as add some lines of glitter painted felt to the surface to mimic a real ornament. This is a great way to make the holidays more fun while giving extra special seating to the kids when the family visits for the holidays.
- North Pole Sign

This craft project is a great way to get the little ones involved since they can help with the painting. You can even throw some glitter on the base so it looks like freshly fallen snow to give an authentic North Pole feel to the scene. Place it by your front door or anywhere you think needs a little extra holiday cheer!
- Candy Cane Walkway
When looking for fun and festive Christmas foam crafts, add a bit of sweetness to your holiday with a pretty candy cane walkway!

A good tip is to use tape over the foam to create the swirl of the red candy cane when painting so you have clean lines.
