National Leon Day

National Leon Day is a holiday that’s observed on the 25th of June—exactly six months away from Christmas. Why is that important? It’s because this holiday is designed for those people who miss the Christmas season and are just biding their time before it arrives again.

People who celebrate this day begin preparing for the Christmas season and shopping for customized gifts for their friends and family. This is definitely not a holiday for people who hate the winter season, but for those who just can’t wait for it, this holiday is the one for them.

Some Christmas Crafting Ideas

Since we’re talking about a holiday that’s preparing for Christmas in the middle of summer, for some reason, we thought it might also be a good idea to talk about some of the Christmas crafting that people can do on this day while they’re waiting for summer to end and winter to start. Below is a list of some of our favorite Christmas crafting ideas for National Leon Day.

Making Mini Christmas Trees From Buttons

If you’re like most people, you probably have a drawer full of extraneous buttons. Why not put those buttons to good use by using them in a crafting project? You can do that by stacking them up into a Christmas tree shape and then using twine to bind them together. That turns a worthless button into a tree ornament that’s sure to be loved for generations.

Popsicle Stick Tree Ornaments

Another tree ornament that can be made on this day involves Popsicle sticks. One Popsicle stick forms the vertical base of the tree, while sticks are shaped to be laid horizontally on this base to make it look like a tree. A star and a loop made of twine can then be fashioned for the top of this tree.

Additional Christmas Crafting Ideas

Of course, the above two crafting ideas are not the only things that people can do on this holiday. There are literally thousands of crafting ideas that people can start on this holiday. However, since we don’t have the space to cover them all, we’ll just give a short list for our fans of this holiday to consider.
