Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Create special Christmas memories by making these cards, decorations, garlands, and cozy gifts with a Scandinavian flavor.

Christiane Bellstedt Myers has developed a beautiful collection of Christmas essentials using natural materials and traditional color themes of red and white, and green and silver. 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 Danish paper cone decorations on your tree, create a sweet pinecone 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. So why not get the family involved and make the festive season really special by making decorations together? You can then relive those happy memories each year as you decorate your home.

Includes index.
