Christmas Themes – Ideas For 2015

This post is part of my Christmas in July 2015 series. You can find more posts by clicking here.

Choosing a theme for Christmas each year is something I do to make planning for Christmas easier. It helps me:

  • make decisions on decorations
  • make decisions on food
  • give a focus to the type of gifts I will make

You can find previous years’ Christmas theme ideas here:

This year I am going for an up-cycled, handmade Christmas theme!


I have already featured some of my ideas for an up-cycled Christmas on the blog and I have loved making use of items I already have around the home.
