Add a little bit of Scandinavian-inspired style to your Christmas decorations this year with these 9 simple DIY Christmas Decorations.
Each year I love to add a few more handmade elements to my Christmas decor. After a trip to Norway a few years ago, I became very inspired by the clean red and white style of many Scandinavian Christmas decorations. My Paternal Grandma was 100% Icelandic and my Grandfather was Norwegian, so I guess it’s in my DNA.
One of these days I’ll create an entire Nordic inspired quilt. This year all that I had time for was some Christmas ornaments. Which is fine, because I love how they turned out!
I work as a Brand Ambassador for BERNINA sewing machines. As a part of that job, I get to create projects for their WeAllSew blog a few times a year. For my latest project, I’m showing you how to create these simple Scandinavian Inspired Embroidery hoop Christmas ornaments.
They are simple to stitch up which makes them great to use as last-minute DIY Chrismas gifts. All you need is an embroidery hoop and some scraps of fabric.
To get the tutorial and pattern just hop on over to WeAllSew.
