Christmas in July Ornaments and Gifts Recap.

Just in case you missed these……

In July we posted a full week of Christmas Crafts to get everybody inspired for Christmas. You could also say that we wanted an excuse to have some fun making Christmas crafts a bit early.

There is still lots of time to get any and all of these done before Christmas. All of these crafts are quick and fairly easy to make. Most of them can be done with your kids.

Don’t let the look of this fool you into thinking it is more complicated than it is. Your kids can lace the yarn around the edges. Think of it as a Christmas ornament lacing board. This is definitely something that you and your child can make together. Go to, our plastic canvas snowflake picture ornament post, to see a complete tutorial.


Here are some fun ideas for Christmas photo ornaments to make with your children. Get out those scrapbooking papers and stickers you have stashed away. Also included are some durable Polymer Clay ornament examples.


Here is a fun way to dress up an ornament. So simple yet it adds so much to the look of your “glass” ornaments. These fantastic shatter proof ornaments are a great way to have beautiful “glass” ornaments on your tree when you have kids and pets.
