Have you ever wondered why we all go bonkers for Christmas in July? Maybe it’s because we miss the cool winter air as the summer heat intensifies. Maybe it’s because we long for those fireplace snuggles while sipping on a cup of hot cocoa. Or maybe, it’s because we crave that festive spirit that surrounds the holiday. Whatever the reason, I know that by the time July rolls around, I am already breaking out the Christmas tunes. I know I’m not alone in this either. The idea of Christmas in July has become so popular that stores start selling their Christmas merchandise in the middle of summer! Believe it or not, there are even such things as Christmas in July parades. As crazy as this un-holiday is, I love it, and so does everyone at AllFreeHolidayCrafts, too.
In honor of this very un-holiday holiday, it’s important to start thinking about how to prepare for it. However, when we say prepare, we really mean craft. Turquoise is huge this summer and why not? No one can get enough of that gorgeous color! Adding a beach-themed twist to traditional Christmas colors is a perfect way to make this un-holiday its own. Think peach-colored snowflakes and icy-blue pine cones. If you still can’t picture it, take a look at where I got my turquoise and beachy Christmas in July inspiration from.
The best part about turquoise is that it’s a classic color. This means that these adorable turquoise crafts won’t ever go out of style. Too often, the classic red and green Christmas color-scheme is overdone. However, the turquoise coloring makes these Christmas in July crafts even more perfect by adding a timeless look that we could never get sick of.
