Christmas tree decorations

Christmas tree decorations

Yes, I know it´s january, but Christmas is soon here again! In december no one has time to do some nice christmas tree decorations, so why not start now in this boring time of the year? Recently found this old book and just love it. It is both a cultural history about the tree decoration history in Sweden, and a practical guide to do the craft yourself. Lots of old photos and examples that no one remembers today.
If you are a craft nerd this is for you (only in swedish, as far as a know). The book ”Granna granen. Julgransprydnader från 1870 till 1930. Historik och modeller att göra själv.” is written by Maria Flinck, 1998 (Albert Bonniers Förlag).

Book about Christmas tree decorations in Sweden

Det här är en otroligt fin bok om julgransprydnader! Om historia, tradition, pysseltips och gör-det-själv instruktioner. Garnänglar, toppstjärnor, vaddtomtar, strutar, girlander, allt finns med. Det känns nästan lite fantastiskt att någon har satt ihop en hel bok om detta. Tack!
