Christmas Crafts in July

Stocking Stuffers for Christmas Morning.
These needlepoint stockings are by far my greatest holiday craft ever. I made them years ago and each one took a year (although I only worked on them a few nights a week) to make!

Every July, when I start seeing Christmas in July posts I usually think “No! The last thing I want to think about is Christmas!”. As expected, I had that thought a few weeks ago.

But then I started thinking. If I made two Christmas crafts for each month, July through Novemmber, I would have ten, yes TEN new holiday crafts to share for the holidays.

Now that caught my attention! I have already started creating my project idea list and even though you won’t see any crafts for five months, you can know that I will be secretly crafting behind the scenes.

(It’s just like the book I wrote last year that I kept a secret for 18 months … hehehe.)

I went through my own holiday crafts and picked out some of my favorites for you to make. I hope they stir your DIY creative interest!
