The holiday season is upon us. If you are looking for ways to express your creativity and decorate your home for this special time of year, we have some new books that you might enjoy.
Check out Christmas Crochet for Hearth, Home & Tree by Edie Eckman. This book contains eighteen projects for crocheters of all skill levels. Included are patterns for stockings and many other home and tree decorations. Some use very little yarn and would be perfect for using up leftovers from other projects. The easy to follow directions ensure that your home will be filled with homemade ornaments and decorations in no time.
Also try Artful Christmas: 30 Elegant Craft Projects by Susan Wasinger. This beautifully illustrated book uses a variety of simple techniques to create an elegant approach to the Christmas season. Many of these projects do not require any craft expertise and take very little time to complete. There are easy step-by-step directions and photos that will guide you through the process. Create beautiful ornaments, stockings, table decorations, and much more to fill your home with Christmas cheer.
These and many other craft books can be found in the library’s non-fiction section. Just ask a helpful staff member to help you find books on whatever type of project you want to create. Happy crafting!
