Christmas in July - it was a week full of Christmas crafts!

I know, I know...many of you are not fans of this. It's ok, we can still be friends. Truth is bloggers and crafters like me starting thinking of the holidays as soon as the last firework gets lit on the 4th of July. Just so happened that my week also ended with a Christmas in July craft show. It was a really busy but fun time! I'm really excited to share with you some of the projects and designs I worked on.

First on the agenda was bow making. This is probably my most requested topic. Bows are perfect for holiday décor and packages and many people struggle with making them. I spent over an hour on Facebook Live demonstrating how to make 5 by hand and how to use the EZ-Bowmaker. These are all very easy and I also shared a few extra tips and tricks. Here's a glimpse of what I made.

Check out the whole video here:

Here's my link for the bowmaker:

I was totally excited to share the first project that I used my Christmas Printable Bundle. You can snag this for yourself here: Christmas Printable Bundle | Under a Cottonwood

The first thing I did was cut out the 3 little wreaths, they were perfect for the adorable Christmas wall hanging I made. See how I made it here:

Now, let me ask you a question. Have you ever thought of using those cute canvas gift bags for projects? I pulled mine out that I picked up last year and made these fun throw pillows.

So fun right! I'm loving this!! Here's what's next. I grabbed 3 styrofoam cones from Wal-Mart and some yarn and turned these into the cutest little Christmas trees.

See them here:

I hope this is giving you some great ideas for this holiday season. These are all so simple and budget friendly too. I'm not done yet though. I've got one more for you and it's my favorite!! I used the buffalo plaid snowflake from the printable bundle and some popsicle sticks. You've got to see how easy it was. Check it out :

Whew, what a week. So many adorable projects, It has truly been so fun. Confession.. I've LOVED having my little tree lit and it just might be there awhile. If you enjoyed these, then you'll be happy to know I've got all kinds of things planned for this year, so stay tuned!!

Happy Crafting!
