)-- Sturbridge Yankee Workshop features a collection of holiday items that offer a heartwarming theme of a homespun Christmas. Decorating with a homespun feel evokes memories of Christmas as a child and reminds us of a simpler time. It is the material used and the quality of the craftsmanship that helps create the handcrafted or handmade look. Consider any of the Sturbridge products featured below to present your home this holiday season with country charm and lots of character.
Whether or not your whole family is together for the holiday season, it can be said that all hearts come home for Christmas. If you have loved ones far away, send them a little love and let them know how much you care with a sweet Heart Button Hanger, featuring various calico and check fabrics pieced together for a patchwork look. Petite buttons add that special handmade touch, as if a cherished grandmother has sewn her prized buttons on these hearts herself. Plaid County Heart Ornaments are sure to warm the heart of anyone who receives them. Give a heart to each of your closest friends and family members for a charming reminder of your friendship each time the ornament is hung on display. Use the sweet smell of orange and cinnamon on a Scented Heart Ornament to evoke a nostalgic feel of a Christmas past, and the inviting aroma of baked holiday treats.
Bring a bit of handmade appeal into every room with pillows that will accent your style and the season. Christmas Postcard Pillow features a vintage inspired design of a feather Christmas tree, a perched cardinal, and scrolling script alluding to the magical holiday season. Presents for Pups has bells that jingle, tails that wag, and an embroidered feather tree with ornaments and festive accents. Woodsy Owl features leather-like fabric and button eyes on a tartan plaid background with applique felt holly to bring the whole look together and offer a natural, woodland feel that can be used on display well after Christmas.
Generate your own ideas for your homespun Christmas feel by designing handmade greeting cards with extra wrapping paper scraps, felt, and buttons. You can also replace store-bought stockings with your personal long stockings or long socks for a vintage touch. For kitchen crafty friends out there, fill a mason jar with the dry ingredients to your favorite cookies or sweet treat, and then write out the recipe and attach it to the jar with ribbon. For a real treat and special family time spent together, have an evening filled with cookie making and singing Christmas carols.
Fill your house and charm your guests with decorative accents that look as though you just picked them up at a local craft sale. Knit stockings, felt trees, and other items such as handmade ornaments will make your entire home feel as though it was decorated by a magical handicraft fairy (and no one ever has to know that you put it all together yourself with items from Sturbridge). Hang the stockings by the chimney with care with a set of wooden stocking hooks, made right here in America from solid wood, with differently colored ends on each hook to easily distinguish which stocking belongs to which person.
All this and more available now at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, your home decorating destination for sixty years. Current pricing and free shipping on holiday items ends December 26, 3013.
