Merry Swiftmas, fellow fans!

1. Taylor Swift Christmas Tree

No holiday display is complete without a decorated tree, and the Swiftmas tree TikToker @cowgirljordanlinedancing would make any Taylor Swift fan swoon. Inspired by the viral friendship-bracelet tree fellow TikToker @chelseazeferina made, @cowgirljordanlinedancing decorated her pink tree with a garland bearing lyrics to Taylor's song "'Tis The Damn Season." There's even a "Taylor's Version" garland to match!


2. Swiftmas Tree Topper

Need a topper for your Swiftmas tree? Forced to keep things traditional for most of your tree but still want a Taylor touch? Enter: a ‌Mirrorball‌-inspired tree topper featuring Taylor herself! We're slightly obsessed with this homemade piece from @tesssart909, which combines Taylor's arms, legs and head onto a mini disco ball. Can't you imagine Santa's reaction upon spotting this treasure atop the tree? Talk about making the whole place shimmer!


3. DIY Taylor Swift Ornaments

Whether you're a ‌Speak Now (Taylor's Version)‌ fanatic or more of a ‌Midnights‌ person, you'll be inspired by the DIY ornament set that TikToker @anumitac made. To create your own version at home, you'll need clay and paint to create dangling delights inspired by each of Taylor's albums. (How cute is that ‌Lover‌ ornament?!)



4. Crochet Swiftmas Garland

You don't have to be crafty yourself to embrace the wonders of Swiftmas! Etsy is home to all sorts of homemade crafts to help complete your Taylor Swift holiday collection, including this crochet star garland from artisan AshleyJoCrochet. Every crochet star in the garland, which extends for 50 inches, represents a different Taylor Swift era. This would look beautiful as a subtle Swiftmas touch on your tree, mantel or wall.


5. Chai Sugar Swiftmas Cookies

Longtime members of the fandom might remember Taylor sharing her favorite cookie recipe back in 2014—chai sugar cookies with just the right amount of sweetness and spice. Add them to your Christmas cookie (or Swiftmas cookie) dessert list by following this easy recipe video from our very own @ehow. Hint: These delicious cookies are even better if you make them while enjoying the dulcet tones of ‌Evermore‌.


6. Christmas Tree Farm Cross-Stitch

Cross-stitching Swifties will love this PDF cross-stitch pattern from Etsy seller TwentyStitchesStudio. The design pays homage to Taylor Swift's seasonal tune ‌Christmas Tree Farm‌, which nostalgically honors the singer's childhood years growing up on her family's Christmas tree farm. If you're feeling extra generous this year, follow the pattern to create a super-thoughtful Christmas gift for the Tay fan in your life.



7. Travis Kelce Nutcracker

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce go hand in hand as of late—literally! To give Taylor's boyfriend a place in your Swiftmas decor, take a cue from creative TikToker @lora_theexplorer and transform a simple red football player nutcracker into Travis Kelce himself. Her attention to detail is impeccable, right down to the Kansas City Chiefs helmet logo!

8. Embroidered Cardigan Stocking

We're firm believers that you can't have a merry Christmas (or Swiftmas) without stocking stuffers. Etsy seller EmbroideredByMads uses thick white yarn and silver stars to create a stocking version of the iconic Taylor Swift cardigan, and the results are ridiculously charming. Can't you imagine filling one of these cozy creations with Taylor-themed stickers, accessories and other small Christmas presents?

9. Swiftmas Cards

Don't forget to send out cards this Swiftmas! TikToker @alltoowelllina makes Polaroid-inspired holiday cards using printed photos of Taylor and paint, pens and markers. She tops her creations with tiny snowflakes and signs her name on the bottom for a personal touch. We think these would be especially beautiful with extra glitter and mini Christmas bows!


10. Midnights Cocktail

Round out your long day of Swiftmas crafting by treating yourself to a drink—a Taylor Swift-themed drink, of course! TikToker @ashpoursdrinks makes a ‌Midnights‌-inspired cocktail (though you could easily omit alcohol for a mocktail!) with honey, lavender syrup, gin, lemon juice and edible glitter. Ah! Take a sip and admire your work. You've created a true Swiftmas wonderland!

Whether you're a longtime Swiftie or a brand-new fan, we're wishing you a spectacular Swiftmas and a very merry holiday season.
