Christmas in the Kitchen

Fabric Ornaments Garland on Kitchen Shelves


Christmas decoration from homemade ornaments

Christmas has entered my kitchen too. Last year I experimented with some red and white accents in the kitchen and I loved that look so much that this year I took it a little further.

You have already seen my ragamuffin wreath, and this garland compliments it very nicely.

red fabric bird ornament Christmas

I have sewn little ornaments like hearts, birds, and stars and strung them to some  butcher’s twine. This little ice-skate is my favorite.

I used the templates from the Sew Pretty Christmas book to make this garland. You can click on the book in my sidebar to see more details about it. It is a lovely book chockfull fun and mostly easy ideas for a handmade Christmas.

My red and white Christmas balls are now stored in my vintage egg basket.

I added the pieces of red transfer ware that I have to my kitchen shelves. Don’t you think this little puppet looks like she is sailing in my (gravy) boat.

All my jars got a little label. These labels where inspired by Sarah who added similar lovely labels to her gorgeous Beach Cottage (oh and ‘thee’ means tea, but I am sure you got that).

I made a little tassel from some scraps I had left after my ragamuffin wreath. Actually I made a couple of tassels so I guess several hostess gifts these next days will be decorated with them.

So this year there is Christmas in my attic, in my living room and now in my kitchen. Wonder which room I will add to my list next year….

    Your red and white is working for you in your kitchen. It looks fantastic and your ornaments are precious!

  14. New Every Morning says

    Red and white: my favorite color combination. My kitchen and your kitchen should meet.

    I love your use of the clear jars, by the way.

    geweldig leuk al dat rood.. momenteel is het scandinavisch a la JD dat de klok slaat.. dit is weer eens lekker zoals kerst ooit was 😉

  16. Brenda @Cozy Little House says

    This is absolutely delightful! As a longtime lover of red and white, it has really captured my heart!

  17. sarah { abeachcottage } says

    goodness! this is delightful – I love it!

    I have similar jars, that I added Christmas stuff to, but not tags like yours (much nicer the way you have done it) but not had time to photograph them yet

    I love your kitchen and all the jars, I am just about to 'jar' all my rice etc – does it work ok in real life??


  18. nannykim/spindlecottage says

    So glad you used punches of red–my favorite color!!! Makes me happy. Love the little line of ornaments!

  19. Joyce says

    Clean and crisp and I love the bird and the skate. I really enjoyed thrifting at the in-laws posts. Too bad my in-law never saved a thing. So I thrift at garage sales when I can. Merry Christmas.
