  • Make the festive season really special and create these stunning step-by-step projects with a Scandinavian flavor, including cards, gift wrap, garlands, and cozy gifts.

    Clare Youngs has developed a beautiful collection of Christmas essentials in the much-loved Scandinavian style, using natural materials and traditional color themes of red and white, green and silver. The four chapters cover a wide range of crafting techniques, from papercutting and papier mâché to embroidery and quilting, and take inspiration from different Scandinavian cultures and traditions. Start with Decorations, which includes a Swedish Dala horse garland and a delicate paper snowflake mobile that even the littlest fingers can help with. Try out some simple embroidery on the folk art gift tags and Christmas Stockings, or make your own silver birds to clip onto a handmade wreath for your door. Cards and Gift Wrap has unique ideas like the cute faux fur-trimmed cards and the minimalist stamped star card and gift wrap. Gifts is packed full of pretty makes to give to loved ones, including plush reindeer toys, felted wool slippers, and mittens inspired by the nomadic Sami people of Scandinavia. The last chapter Hygge, will encourage you to make ‘cozy time’ for yourself and your family with a warm winter throw, and a beautiful carrier roll for wooden logs, and don't forget to indulge in the Scandinavian passion for candlelight by making some Copenhagen-inspired tea light lanterns. Every project comes complete with step-by-step illustrations and there is a comprehensive techniques section to help you on your way, so why not get the family involved and create special holiday memories by making decorations together? You can then relive those happy memories each year as you decorate your home.
