Christmas in July Crafts

For many of us, it’s that time of year where we start counting down to the Christmas season. So we thought what better way to kick off the count down than with a round up of Christmas in July crafts! As for the remaining people that say “no way, too soon”, well, they wouldn’t be scrolling through this post anyway.

It’s All About Christmas in July

When I think about Christmas in July, the crafts that instantly come to mind are those beach-loving, coastal-Christmas crafts that we loooove to make. If you ask us, combining Christmas with the beach is really the best of both worlds! When Christmas actually comes along for us in South Western, Ontario, we’re normally in a foot of snow and frigidly cold weather.

So we’re often inspired by thoughts of the lake and our many beach finds, such as driftwood, rocks, seaglass and sea shells to craft with for Christmas. If you’re onboard for Christmas in July, take a look at these DIY projects to get you inspired. And just think, there’s only six more months to go until we December 25th…let the count down begin!
