Craft Your Own Cosy Scandi Christmas (Paperback)
Gift Ideas, Craft Projects and Recipes for Festive Hygge
Christmas is the most hyggelig of seasons, and in this book Becci shares over fifty ideas to bring a touch of Scandinavian cosiness to your home this winter. The chapters cover everything from sumptuous edible gifts and home-made presents with a Nordic flavour, to traditional Danish crafts with which to decorate your space.
Projects include a wild winter birch wreath, woven julestjerner star chandelier, five-minute sock gnomes and even a Christmas tree bath scrub! Try your hand at a quick finger-crochet scarf, scented white clay ornaments, or make bangles, cushions and baubles from a pre-loved sweater. Becci’s favourite recipes for the ultimate in Danish festive comfort food cover both baking and the all-important Christmas Eve feast, plus there are traditional after-dinner games for all the family to enjoy.

Such a gorgeous book, from homemade crafts to homemade baking, this book is everything you could possibly need to add that little special sparkle to your own Christmas;
I would definitely purchase this book for the recipes and instructions to make items from it year after year.
I think it’s a nice collection of fun holiday projects for anyone who is interested in Scandinavia to look at. The crafts are relatively easy and the variety of recipes seem delicious. I mostly enjoyed the sprinkled history of each dish or personal story the author wove through the book.NetGalley, Kimberly Cooper
Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year so as soon as I saw this book I wanted to read it! And I'm not disappointed, I absolutely loved the crafts, and the fact that the author tested them with her son means I'm plotting out ones I can do with my little one! I'll admit the edible gifts section made me a little hungry lol but I can't wait to test those out on friends and family either!NetGalley, Krystina M
It's definitely a book to keep on the shelf!
This is a lovely Scandinavian crafting and recipe book for the holidays. Think Martha Stewart but more frugal, green and friendly. 🙂 The book features all kinds of projects like making a homemade wreath from found branches and bits of other things, making the most decadent hot cocoa, etc. There are chapters for decorating, recipes, gifts to make, etc. There's definitely a focus on repurposing and using found objects, like there are darling little gnomes and such made from knit hats, the fingers of knit gloves and old sweaters. She even shows you how to make darling little reindeer from your twig scraps when you make the birch wreath. I'm not sure that I would go to the same level of effort that she does, but it inspires me to want to. There are also lots of lovely photos throughout, especially for the project instructions. Recommended.NetGalley, Alicia Bayer

In our house, we love all things Christmas. Sure. it’s August and 28 degrees but it’s never too early to start planning for this year’s Christmas and this book has you covered for Christmas 2022 and beyond. In reviewing this book, I’ve found a whole host of things I want to feature in this year’s Christmas - decorations to make, gifts for our friends and family, new traditions to set. All this and lots of recipes for the festive season- I might not even wait until Christmas to the that coffee liqueur.
Another cute and inspiring book about crafts and tips to make this Christmas an incredible moment with family and friends. I like a lot books with instructions and new ideas for holidays and this one has fit perfectly in this category. Good Job!NetGalley, Heloiza Silva

A gorgeous book stuffed full of cosy projects and foodie treats which would make a great addition to any collection of Christmas books.
The projects are very well explained and so infinitely 'doable ' without the need for expensive equipment or complicated techniques.
I have several in mind to try for Christmas this year.
This book would make a delightful early Christmas present for anyone who enjoys a hands on approach to preparing their end of year festivities.

I am looking forward to making many of the items detailed in this book, especially the advent candle, Every year I struggle to buy and advent candle that goes with my decorations, well not this year as I am all ready to decorate my own.
I would highly recommend this book for those who want to make their own unique decorations especially this year when the cost of living is so high, as the hanging star decorations can be made using bits of paper that can be picked up quite cheaply, but will look so amazing.
This was a very cute "how-to" book with a variety of Scandinavian-style Christmas crafts, recipes, and gift ideas... I enjoy making homemade gifts and will definitely try the recipe for the Christmas tea and attempt the felt pompom coaster.NetGalley, Rachel Hagerty
There are some fun ideas in this book for celebrating Christmas the Scandinavian way. This book includes information on foods, crafts, gifts, and games. There's small projects throughout the to do things like show you how to make your own wreath, make a scarf, and prepare sweet desserts to share. The measurements and weights for ingredients and materials are in grams and cm. The section on games is especially interesting! I liked learning new Christmas games.NetGalley, Alyssa McClure
