Whether or not you hail from Northern Europe, you will find a project to love in Scandinavian Christmas Crafts and Recipes. This charming collection of 35 patterns and five traditional recipes is sure to bring a smile to your face. Inspired by the beautiful Christmas traditions of her native Sweden, author Helene Lundberg combines a flair for the vintage and rustic with the practicality of modern crafting techniques.

Scandinavian Christmas Crafts and Recipes is for crafters of all levels. Even if you do not have experience with sewing, paper crafting, or cooking, you'll catch on quickly. This beginner-friendly guide includes a materials list, detailed instructions, and step-by-step photos for every project.

A glance at the table of contents reveals that Scandinavian Christmas Crafts and Recipes has it all–home decor projects, tips for holiday entertaining, Christmas card tutorials, handmade gift ideas, and more. Because this book is brimming with festive designs for stockings, tree skirts, ornaments, and garlands, you might have a hard time choosing which project to make first.

Each design in Scandinavian Christmas Crafts and Recipes evokes classic European elements that look at home no matter what your personal style. We especially like the Pillow with Pom-Poms, which features a heart motif and button accents. The Christmas Tree Gift Box is another favorite because of its chic and clever design, and we can't wait to make our own set of Wrist Warmers for Mom! In addition to the many projects mentioned here, Scandinavian Christmas Crafts and Recipes contains tutorials for picture frames, gift wrap, candles, and advent calendars.

And who could overlook the recipes? Lundberg brings you recipes for five traditional baked goods including Saffron Biscotti and Delicious Fruit Bread. Fill your home with the delicious aroma of a familiar Scandinavian treat, and you'll be in the mood to craft your way through this wonderful book.
