Over 45 projects and quick ideas for beautiful decorations & gifts
Create 45 simple projects with a Scandinavian flavour, including home decorations, garlands and beautiful gifts.
Christiane Bellstedt Myers has developed a beautiful collection of decorative makes using rustic fabrics and natural materials. The four chapters – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter – cover a wide range of crafts, including collage, embroidery, painting and sewing, and take inspiration from Scandinavian seasonal traditions to bring magic to your year. Celebrate the coming of Spring with a lovely Clematis wreath, share the joy of Mid-Summer with your friends by setting the table outdoors using a handmade tablecloth, decorate your home for Autumn by bringing the harvest indoors, and make Winter a time for hygge by lighting plenty of candles and hanging some vintage chandelier crystals to capture the soft glow. Try out some simple embroidery on the lavender cushions, which would make great gifts, or make a pretty garland to hang on the mantelpiece at Christmas. So why not get the family involved and make each season really special by making decorations together? You can then relive those happy memories each year as you decorate your home.
