Theme of the Month: “Christmastime”
This Christmas we’re celebrating life’s simple pleasures. Candlelight, cozy slippers and open fires; warmth, comfort and simplicity; a feeling of connection, family and homespun authenticity. The Danes have a word for it: “hygge” (pronounced “hoo-ga”)—it sums up the way we adapt our homes aesthetically for winter. After all, when the thermometer plummets to below freezing and it’s dark for most of the day, making indoors warm, cozy and welcoming is a mood-enhancing must-do.
So let’s take pleasure in the modest, the mundane, and the familiar—the simple joys of everyday sensual experiences. Gentle, creative DIY projects will bring so much pleasure in the build-up to Christmas: a softly sparkling throw pillow, and Christmas stars that light up the darkness; starry earrings to illuminate your face, and even nail art that celebrates the magical beauty of winter. It’s time to get hip to hygge!
Gluing onto wood using two-part glue: Gluing is a conveniently speedy way to bring your designs to life. To glue crystals onto wood—or any other surface—you’ll need two-part glue which, when mixed together, forms a very strong bond. So, assemble your tools: tweezers, crystals, a tube of glue, and a soft cloth to wipe away excess glue, but before you start, make very sure that the surface you’re gluing is squeaky clean, dry, and free from grease or oil.
Sewing: The great thing about sewing is its simplicity: You need only a needle and thread to create a completely individual look. Choose your Swarovski crystals and sew them onto any material you like—fabric, leather, whatever—either by hand or using a standard sewing machine.
