Decorating for Christmas: Five Festive Themes with 70 Craft Projects for Your Home

Front Cover
Reader's Digest Association, 1996 - Crafts & Hobbies - 128 pages
Talented designer Carolyn Schulz shows how to create a truly memorable Christmas by transforming a home using one of five decorating themes: tartan, toyland, Scandinavian, Victorian, or country. To celebrate a traditional Christmas, the Victorian theme features hobbyhorses, wreaths, angels, and an elegant fireplace swag. The toyland theme is ideal for younger members of the family, offering lots of fun ideas, including a candy garland, decorated stockings, frosted cookies, and a giant Christmas cracker table setting. Alternatively, those who prefer to create their own theme will appreciate the wealth of helpful advice for choosing and using colors in their decorations.
A step-by-step section on decorating the tree, together with detailed instructions for making the best-loved Christmas accessories, such as tree ornaments, door wreaths, fireplace swags, table centerpieces, and Christmas stockings, make this an invaluable guide. More than 70 unusual and creative decorations are included. Many can be made in just a few minutes using simple techniques, and all are beautifully illustrated with inspirational color photographs.
