Holiday Workshop Holiday home tour
By FOUND and Kristin Alber Design
Recreate the look of the Mueller Workshop by sticking with the following; use a neutral palette, reclaimed natural wood and painted furniture pieces. The chalkboard accents, cubbies and industrial jars are not only decorative but are practical too. For the holidays, this well stocked sideboard provides a great place to wrap gifts while an oversized white Nutcracker stands watch.
When not decked out in its’ Christmas finery, this organizational space houses general housekeeping supplies and hardware. Last year, it was featured in the December issue of Country Living Magazine and the Muellers chose to use it as the backdrop for their holiday card.
– Wrap trees in burlap and tie with canvas ribbon or twine.
– Use Kraft boxes, wrap, twine and string for a natural simple look.
– Sprinkle fresh greenery with faux snow for playful holiday scene.
– Silver and glass accents such as mini ornaments and glittered boxes mix in nicely with the industrial theme of the space.
Simple D.I.Y. Joy letters
Create your own JOY by picking up some simple paper mache letters (available at your local craft store). Outline and cut out fabric in the shape of your letter and glue it to the letters with a fabric or multi-purpose glue. If you want to finish off the edges and give them added dimension, choose a coordinating trim and glue that around the sides of the letter. For these letters, we chose a coordinating cream fabric and a thin braided cream trim. You can also use paper and use a modge podge technique for a fun and whimsical look.
