Craft Along: Christmas in July

For July's Independent Craft Along I went with Christmas in July. I don't work during the summer so July is my time to work on Christmas.
  My first project was making our yearly tree topper. I found this wool felt kit on etsy from the Cheswick Company. I changed things up a little bit and was able to make two with some extra felt I had.

  My second project was a quick ornament I made using a tiny candy box and a wooden snowman. When you hang the ornament in front of a christmas light the window with Santa will glow.

 My third project was my yearly Christmas cards.These are not quite done, I can't decide what to use as the border. They are made using old coffee cup lids. It was Ms. L idea to write xmas on the last line, it's quirky but that's the way we roll.

  My last project was finishing my vintage ornament wreath that I've been working on since last summer. I found a couple of good estate sales where I was able to acquire a large amount of bulbs. The burnt finger were worth it. It turned out much better than I anticipated.
