Kitchen Holiday Tips
Decorating your primitive kitchen for the holidays can really have your love for decorating and your imagination running wild.
First let's get out all those wonderful holiday scented candles like gingerbread, apple pie, pumpkin, Christmas cookie and the list goes on and on.
This tip is so simple and yet makes a cute touch to your primitive kitchen. Purchase some plain off white dishtowels at your local craft store. At the bottom front of the towel stamp one of your favorite holiday themes such as snowmen, santas, Christmas trees, stockings, wreaths, etc. I chose to purchase red and green stamp pads and stamped the top half of my snowman red and the bottom half green. If you want to stamp them in black you can do that also. Make sure you buy stamps that won't come off in the wash.
Next place over your oven door handle. Take a piece of red, green, or whatever holiday color you choose and tie a couple of jingle bells at either end.
Then just tie the raffia around the towel right under your handle.
Every time you take something out of the oven you'll get a little jingle to brighten your holidays!
While your purchasing your dishtowels, pick up some napkins and stamp the same design to match.
Any primitive basket can become an instant holiday accent. Add some raffia, bells or whatever other primitive items you can think of.
I love to hang wreaths in my primitive kitchen window. Use grapevine wreaths that you can purchase at any craft store. Let your imagination go when decorating these. I chose to tie strips of leftover fabric that I made my shutter panels with. Then I tied jingle bells at either end of some twine, wrapped around my wreath at the top and tied a bow! Just the right festive touch for your primitive kitchen.
Tie some bells on with raffia, stick sprigs of holly berries, small candy canes, or small clusters of pine cones. Add some strips of homespun fabric and your have an inexpensive holiday decoration everyone will love!
Place a large glass decanter on the counter and fill with peppermint sticks, holiday candies, sprigs of holly berry or cinnamon sticks. How about filling it with jingle bells to keep with the theme of the dishtowels and napkins! Tie some red and green raffia around the middle of the decanter and another little touch of holiday spirit has been added to your primitive kitchen.
In place of the raffia for all the preceding tips I just gave you, tie strips of homespun holiday fabric instead!
Place a nice big primitive candle on a holiday plate and let the aroma of the upcoming holidays make your senses come alive!
Fill a small cupcake tin with votives of red, white and green. Put some paper baking cups underneath the candles for the wax.
Just little touches of the holidays here and there are enough to make your primitive kitchen just the place to be right through till New Years.
These are just a few ideas to help you make your upcoming holidays a place to enjoy friends and family!
