Natural Trimmingsby Creative Publishing International Editors
Buffering the commercialization of Christmas and instilling an unpretentious quality to the holiday home, Nature's bounty is brought indoors. The look, feel, and scent of fresh pine boughs instantly says, "Merry Christmas." Cinnamon and other spices are used for decorations, and their inviting scents evoke Christmas memories. Fruits and flowers add a particular richness to the home, without a hint of glitter. Over the ages, we have given symbolic meaning to many of these natural materials, giving them almost mystical powers when we bring them into our homes. With rich photography and interesting anecdotes, this book offers insight into the symbolism of the natural elements that we bring into our homes and shows how to use them for holiday embellishment. The compact size, beautiful photography, and informative features make it an excellent Christmas gift book, while step-by-step techniques and projects appeal to the holiday crafter.
The projects are appropriate for all ages and all skill levels. It's a valuable guide that can provide easy and affordable Christmas trimmings. The Christmas Customs series also includes Handcrafted Ornaments & Hearth & Home .
