Christmas in July

by Lynn Lilly, Jun 27 2023

We love Christmas whether it is in December or July! Check out all the fun Lily and I had combining a summer fun from our beach trip with Christmas! We took the seashells we collected at the beach and used our favorite Crayola products to turn them into photo ornaments! 

Project: Christmas in July

Project Video: 



  • Crayola Acrylic Paint
  • Crayola Glitter Glue
  • Crayola Permanent Markers
  • Crayola Washable Glue
  • Photos
  • Seashells
  • Ribbon
  • Scrap Cardboard


  1. Paint your seashells with acrylic paint and decorate with glitter glue. Let them dry completely
  2. Cut a piece of cardboard in a circle and cut out the center. The border should be wide enough to glue your shells. 
  3. Glue a photo on to the cardboard in the center opening. 
  4. When the shells are dry glue them around the cardboard and let the glue dry completely. 
  5. Glue a ribbon or string in a loop to the back of the frame to turn it into an ornament. 

Happy Christmas in July!
