Christmas in July Crafts

I love the idea of Christmas in July parties.  After all of the hot weather
it's fun to pretend to be wearing a warm and comfy sweater and drinking
a hot cup of cocoa.  Okay ~ let's get into the Christmas mood with some 
reuse, recycle crafts.

This little Christmas cottage was made from a Ritz Cracker box.  Just
added some paint, some cotton and some glitter.  

I made this skate from the remainder of that Ritz box.  I added some
white felt, sequins and more glitter.   I took a pic of the skate and emailed 
it as a Christmas card to a friend who is an avid ice skater.

I plan to make some more skates this year and give them to Juli for her 
Christmas tree.

Every year my Mom spends hours decorating her Christmas packages.
It's hard to compete with her creations, so I just decided to recycle a brown
grocery bag and paint it to look like a mountain white Christmas scene.

I tied the package up with some left over yarn from a project, added some
white spray painted twigs, a painted pine cone and a little tag.  

I always seem to get started on Christmas crafts so late, but perhaps 
this year I will start much sooner.  I certainly am becoming inspired by all
of the wonderful Christmas in July posts!

I am joining ~

Christmas tablescapes too!  And how about that Christmas music?
That really gets us in the mood don't you think???

  1. What great Christmas craft ideas! Thanks for sharing them :)

  2. Isn't Christmas in July fun! We celebrate it every year here because it is winter here in Australia so it is the perfect weather to think about Christmas. I just wish I could have a cold Christmas every year!

    Best wishes and Happy Christmas in July!
