Farmhouse Style magazine winter projects


Two of my favorite holiday magazines are out, and I want to share with you all a few of the projects included in these fun issues.


First of all, there’s the Country Sampler Farmhouse Style Winter edition and then the special Christmas one, so I’ll break it down for you with all the details from each magazine.


Let’s start with the Winter issue… The whole magazine is really filled with lots of beautiful homes all decked out for the holidays, and of course there are a lot of DIY projects and recipes included here too.


My first contribution is in the “Creative DIY Garlands” article that starts on page 92. 

I created is a hand-made 3-D star garland made from vintage book pages. Dozens and dozens of star shapes were cut out and then sewn together to create this spectacular garland.

This one measures 100” long, so it would look great draped along  a mantel, a lovely window or over your dining room table.

BEST OF ALL, for the first time ever this garland is available HERE along with several other Christmas projects that have appeared in Country Sampler Farmhouse style magazine.


Over on page 100, you can check out a little gift-wrapping touch that costs nothing to put together. 

Simply forage a few evergreen branches and create mini fresh wreaths to top your packages and add a festive and fragrant touch.  


Mini holiday cheeseballs are the perfect finger food to bring to your next holiday gathering, and they’re so cute too!


These Santa Sacks are one of the best ways to quickly wrap those slightly larger gifts. 

I just used a large vintage Martha Stewart tablecloth to sew these two gift sacks together. 

They turned out better than expected, and I know I'll be using these over and over for lots of Christmases to come.


Next up is the special Christmas issue… isn't the cover cute?


I put together this rustic evergreen wreath with cypress branches, eucalyptus and seed pods found in my garden. It’s finished off with a simple burlap ribbon around the top to display anywhere.


It looks so pretty on our rustic back gate!  

Here’s a fun DIY Project that’s perfect for holiday gift giving, pretty little fire-starters for the fireplace.


I used dried orange slices, mini pinecones, sprigs of rosemary and little cinnamon sticks in mine, and melting the wax to put all these components together is really the fun part.


While assembling them, they cool very quickly and then you instantly have these amazingly fragrant little gifts for giving to friends and family.


Here’s a special little vignette I put together for Country Sampler Farmhouse Style using vintage coffee cans and tea tins for planting herbs in.


They’re especially decked out for the holidays with the addition of some of my favorite vintage Santa Claus figures and two kinds of festive jingle bells.

These little herbed-up tin treasures also make heartwarming holiday gifts.


Among all the lovely articles, pictures and holiday tips in this Christmas issue of Country Sampler Farmhouse Style, I really love this page that includes heart-warming traditions, and want to share it with all of you.
