15 Christmas DIY Projects: Day 6 – Christmas in July

Here we go with Bluesky Browsing #98.

I started my search on Pinterest by looking for DIY Christmas projects in general. The more I searched, the more I was attracted to Christmas tree crafts. You will notice many projects focused on trees. Christmas crafts cover so many different materials that you’ll find a stocking full of great ideas.

For these DIY Christmas trees, I looked for ideas that were pretty, easy, and could be adapted to whatever Christmas color scheme you chose.

I also looked for DIY Christmas projects that had great tutorials – clear, concise and great photography. Know that every pretty picture has a “show and tell” behind it.

Enjoy them all.
