Unique and Beautiful Ideas

Author Susan Waggoner has written numerous non-fiction titles for DSC_0023making Christmas brighter, and after reading this title, I’d love to check out the others. In this book, find 40 unique vintage-style projects, with detailed, clear instructions, detailed supply lists and beautiful photographs. Create a sparkly Christmas cottage, a pine cone wreath, tabletop tree, holiday charm bracelet, needle-felted snowman and many more projects. In addition to the directions, the author shares interesting facts about Christmases of the past. It makes for great reading.

What You’ll Love About This Book

DSC_0021The 40 projects included within the 144 pages of Handcrafted Christmas are not the quintessential crafts you so often see in Christmas books; these are original, out-of-the-ordinary and because there are so many different types of projects, this book appeals to a wide range of crafters. The high quality book itself is so lovely and made to last, so you can take it out every year and try something new. The recipes look delicious and are present beautifully in the photographs too.  Handcrafted Christmas is truly a keepsake for the dedicated Christmas crafter.
