I love this book for it's lovely homely feel and the variety of projects included!
Christiane Bellstedt Myers has created a beautiful collection of Christmas decorations, food and gifts using natural materials and traditional colour themes . The four chapters cover a wide range of crafts, including collage, embroidery, sewing and baking and take inspiration from Scandinavian traditions to bring the magic of hygge to your holiday celebrations.
Make a group of little sparkling Christmas trees for your table, hang paper cone decorations on your tree, create a sweet pine cone family, or a scented anise wreath and don't forget to indulge in the Scandinavian passion for candlelight by making some beautiful twig candle holders. Try out some simple embroidery on the tiny framed pictures, which would make great gifts, or make a pretty mitten garland to hang on the mantelpiece. There is also a chapter of bakes including a delightful gingerbread house and a sweetly scented cookie wreath.
The book contains a lots of quick and easy projects for all ages and abilities as well as more detailed sewing and craft projects.
