10 simple Christmas in July Crafts

Christmas is actually the furthest thing from my mind in the middle of July, but two years ago, I was at my aunt’s cottage, and they were celebrating it there. It was a hoot to see everyone decorating their yards with plastic Santas and blow up snowmen in the midst of a summer heat-wave.  They went all out, stringing Christmas lights, and blasting Christmas carols through the neighbourhood. What fun!  I’ve rounded up 10 of my all-time favourite easy Christmas crafts for you and your kids to get busy with if you’re planning on decking the halls for a celebration of your own this summer!
