We celebrated Christmas in July last year as a month long celebration to launch our Wood Project Box. We knew we needed to go big, and what’s bigger than Christmas?!! And, it was a no brainer because I LOVE Christmas y’all!
See, I love Christmastime, and not just because you get presents, decorate, and everything smells wonderful, but because it’s celebrating the birth of our Lord. I get to make my home a special place for my family to celebrate and count our blessings. I’m also partial to watching my kiddos sing “Away in the Manger” at our church pageant. ?
And since we had so much fun last year, we decided to bring it back this year––for one week only––and give y’all a limited sneak peek into our Christmas Collection! I shared some new tutorials, like my Scandinavian Inspired Dollar Tree Bell Makeover and some old, like my Rustic Scrap Wood Project Ideas. We even enjoyed a few amazing giveaways for anyone who bought a Holiday Scented Dough Bowl Candle.
Since there was so much we covered this week, I’ve put together a roundup of all the products we featured below for easy reference.
Christmas Truck Fabric Sign
Who doesn’t love an old red truck with a Christmas tree in the back? When I saw this sign, I was instantly drawn to the truck because of the buffalo check plaid! I knew that the sign would be a good fit over a fireplace or even outside as part of a front porch motif. This sign is BIG y’all! Measuring 34 inches wide, 20 inches tall, this piece features a metal frame to stretch the canvas. It’s rustic, but also a perfect addition for anyone who likes modern farmhouse decor.
Holiday Scented Dough Bowl Candles
I joke with the R+R girls that we might become a candle shop with how much y’all LOVE doughbowl candles! But honestly, I don’t blame you because they are the best smelling candles around! Y’all know I LOVE wood decor and the dough bowl candle is a perfect addition to any table. We stocked three unique scents––Fraisier Fire, Spiced Cranberry Apple, and Holiday Cheer––for our Christmas in July giveaway, where if you bought a candle you were entered in a drawing to win some fun prizes. If you love these, keep your eyes peeled because an elf told me we will have new scents and designs arriving soon.
Farmhouse Red Stripe Pillow
Are you like me and love to switch out your pillows for the seasons? I have been eyeing a neutral pillow that I can use for more than one season and when I saw the muted red stripe on the beautiful grain sack, it just POPPED! I knew I had found it! Not only will this pillow look great on a couch or bed, but you can use it for Valentine’s and the Fourth of July too. It’s a beautiful addition for anyone who loves french farmhouse decor.
“Merry & Bright” and “Jingle All The Way” Signs
These festive sitters are USA made, and feature a dark walnut handmade frame. I added both to our shoppe because I loved how distressed each piece was versus looking like they were mass produced. Grab a vase with floral stems, a dough bowl candle, and set that Merry & Bright sign up and you have fast Christmas decor. These make quick and easy gifts for an office party or teacher gift.
DIY Craft Kits
Since we launched Christmas in July last year with our Wood Project Box, I thought we would return to our roots and bring you not one, but TWO DIY wood craft kits to get you ready for Christmas! Both of the DIY Kits featured our theme for the week, Oh Holy Night, to celebrate the Lord’s birth and the reason for the season! Each kit features reclaimed wood ready for you to assemble and add your personal touch. The Reclaimed Stable and Manger features six pieces of reclaimed pallet wood that assemble into a gorgeous minimal stable and manger, and the O Holy Night Kit features two wood blocks for you to personalize.
These DIY Craft Kits were only available during the week of Christmas in July, but if you’re wanting to get your hands dirty with some festive DIY, our Wood Project Box is a monthly subscription with curated wood decor projects sent to your house each month.
