Front Cover
Hearst Books, 1999 - House & Home - 112 pages
Some hold that Christmastime, that most wonderful of holidays, might be in danger of overcommercialization. In Handmade Christmas, the editors of Country Living have provided thirty projects to thwart that unjolly trend. Step-by-step instructions and color photos lead through delightful activities ranging from making sugared apples, to sewing patchwork teddy bears, to building snowmen, to setting up card displays. Consider personalizing Christmas by starting family traditions such as a family outing to cut down the tree. Or, why not plant one to honor a newborn or small child?Handmade Christmas also shares some nifty decorating ideas: scalloped edge tablecloths, Christmas wreaths, lights for trees or hedges. Each project is designed and presented so that novices of any age can quickly achieve satisfaction and enjoyment -- a marvelous and affordable way to return the Christmas holiday to heart and hearth.
