Attention crafters: You can make your own holiday gifts or create a few crafts to decorate your home or to wear for the holidays at Michaels’ Holiday Maker Fests on Saturday, Dec. 7, and Dec. 14.

On Dec. 7, crafts projects geared toward the family include a holiday hoop wreath for the door, holiday floral Mason jar, Christmas tree T-shirt and gingerbread house — all of which are free except for the cost of supplies and decorations, which can be purchased in the store, says the chain's public relations manager Mallory Smith. Kids ages 3 and older can create a free gingerbread house bell craft, including supplies. Instruction and working space are provided at in-store classrooms.

Michaels hosts a second Holiday Maker Fest on Dec. 14, with instruction to make a festive Christmas T-shirt. On that day, kids ages 3 and older can make a free (supplies included) reindeer antlers craft.

Both Holiday Maker Fests are from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at all of the 18 Michaels stores throughout Long Island. Registration is at the store. For more information, go to
