Christmas Kmart Hacks Wicker Wreath

This year, it’s all about the wreath. You can pick up one pre-made. Or you can make one. Start with a basic $7 Kmart wicker wreath and add your own little pretties. Add whatever you want – baubles, tinsel, fake plants. As long as you have a glue gun and a bit of patience, you’re ready to rock your wreath.

Pool noodle wreath

Another option? Pick up a $3 pool noodle, a boat load of baubles and a glue gun and make your own, like these clever Kmart mums have done!

Pool noodle centrepieces

Not a fan of the wreath? How about a centrepiece for your Christmas table? You can create a cute centrepiece out of a pool noodle too. Just don’t glue the ends together.

Bouquet of balls

If you don’t have a lot of time (and don’t feel like gluing 8 gazillion balls to a noodle), then you can also get a beautiful centrepiece by placing some baubles in a vase. Add a cute reindeer ornament and your table is all Christmased up! Easy peasy, Christmas squeezy.

Terrific tree hacks

What about the outside? Pick up a $5 3ft Kmart tree and a planter and you’ve got yourself an outdoor Christmas tree, perfect to add to the front or back patio. If you’re hosting a Christmas Day BBQ in your backyard, this is an awesome way to spruce up the area with festive fun.

No fireplace? No problem? Grab a bunch of boxes (empty beer cartons are the perfect size), tape them together, paint them white and glue red card to the top. You can get all of the goodies, except the beer, from Kmart. We used red card, white craft paint and brown craft paint for the top.

Classroom crafts

Stamping school pressies

Kmart Christmas Hacks School Kids Presents

If your kids are in school, you may also feel the pressure to give each child in their classroom a card at the end of the year (don’t worry though, by around year three, your kids usually lose interest in doing this and you can bypass this step).

But, until then, have a look at these adorable homemade classroom pressies, complete with a Christmas pencil, bell, card and stamp set. Each bag cost about $1.60 in all.

Reindeer cards

Another option is to bypass the bags and design cute reindeer stamps for each child. The reindeer cards and stamps set will set you back $11 (for about 24 kids).

That about wraps up our Christmas Kmart hacks for this year. But there will be plenty more hacks to come! In the meantime, check out these other clever Kmart hacks that all mums need to know.
