The month of July presents one of the biggest celebrations of the year. The highly anticipated 4th of July is only a couple of days away and like most people, you have been preparing for this day for a couple of weeks (maybe months). You’re probably going to have family and friends over and you’ll all have a good time. But what happens after all the bright red and green fireworks, delicious cookouts, and perfect-weather picnics end? Well, similar to when your favorite TV series ends, the best way to overcome that void feeling you get is to fill it with something new and merry. Have you picked up on all the clues in this post as to what it is…? Say hello to Christmas! Yes, it’s only July, but if you haven’t celebrated Half-Christmas, you haven’t truly celebrated Christmas. What’s better than Christmas besides having TWO Christmases! And we here at cutratecrafts.com have just what you need to get in the Christmas spirit. From DIY ornaments designs to Christmas patterns, cutratecrafts.com has all you need make Christmas in July.
It’s just shy of 6 months away from December, it’s not winter, it’s hot out, and there is no snow. Worry not! With cranking the air conditioner and creating some gorgeous decorations, your place will feel like the North Pole in no time. We’ve got some work to do, so let’s start with the basis for Christmas: snow. The Ho Ho Ho Let It Snow Kit is your Christmas guide this year. There is nothing more fresh than frosty snowflakes and jolly snowmen! Enjoy making these 23 project designs to brighten the season! Projects include: quilts; pillows; rugs; ornaments and more.
Sometimes celebrating Christmas during the hot, long summer days is difficult. Bright sunshine, warm air, swimsuits- it all can really combat the idea of a snowy, beautiful December. But, stressing over these small details defeats the purpose of the season. So, why not do yourself a favor and combine summer and winter with this Tropical Christmas Cross Stitch Kit. This kit actually includes 7 cross stitch patterns, perfect for a week of celebrating jolly ol’ Saint Nick.
Christmas is such a beautiful season. Not only because of the snow and gorgeous lights, but because Christmas is a time to spread love and joy through gifts. It’s never too early to start working on your gifts. Nothing says thoughtful than a hand-crafted crocheted item from a loved one. From potholders and towel toppers and scrubbies, this book of Mary Maxim’s Favorite Holiday Patterns will give you all the ideas you need to make your crocheted gift the most memorable! Every one of the 12 crochet patterns in this book also use Mary Maxim’s Scrub It Yarn. These yarns come in a wide variety of colors and they are perfect for making dishcloths and scrubbies.
Apart from the gifts and the joyful feeling of Christmas, the other thing I love about Christmas are all the deals available! One of the best time of the year to shop is during Christmas. It is also a great time to score sweet deals on all your favorite food and craft items. My favorite deal from CutRateCrafts is this Crochet Bouquet Pattern Book. This book allows you to express yourself with 35 quick and easy flower, headband, and hat patterns! With everything from yarn drums and coloring drums to pattern books and colorful yarns, these amazing deals will leave you feeling like it’s Christmas in July!
