monday christmas colors

The fun thing about decorating for Christmas is that there are no rules. You can pick a new favorite color palette every year and try out new decorations. There are a lot of places where you can find your color inspiration. Foods are to me a great place to look and the season also invites new flavors into your home. I have a love for chocolate all year round, but when autumn and winter comes I find that it's especially irresistible. Cinnamon is a spice that I don't particularly like, but during Christmas season, its scent creates a very homey feel to me. All these smells are like color palettes to me. 

This year I'm going with a mix of earthy chocolate and cool scandinavian blue/gray colors with a sprinkle of red. What are your Christmas colors this year? /Annika

 
 

furry wreath 'how to'

Since we have put a few wreaths on the site this week, we wanted to explain how they are made. This wreath is made out of fur, bark, pinecones, moss, Christmas balls and ribbon in a beautiful mix. It is easily put together with a glue gun, where all the pieces are being glued on a straw wreath.

You start by gluing all the main-materials on the straw wreath (fur, bark and ribbon). The peaces doesn´t have to be exactly square, it will make the end result more exciting. Now you have to fill in the "holes" with moss, pinecones and Christmas balls to finish the project.

This was one of my favorite projects, because the choice of materials was so different. It will make a wonderful peace on the wall for Christmas.
If you´ve got any question, feel free to leave a message.

Happy project. /Sussi

This is our Sunday picture for fabriken.
 
 
 

happy friday!

I thought I wanted to start your weekend of by posting this picture of this gorgeous wreath my sister made this week. It has such a natural and earthy feeling to it that you just feel like hugging it. 
This would go perfect on your wall if you like the white country style. I would even bring in that branch. They seem to be the perfect match.
My sister's work with flowers is a great inspiration to me. And that feels good, being inspired.
 
I hope you'll all feel inspired this weekend. Happy friday! /Annika

Later we'll post some 'how to's on the wreaths.

 

flower frenzy

So my sister went flower decoration crazy this week. She has been bombarding me with beautiful pictures of her latest arrangements. I know hyacinths are some of her favorites, because you can let part of the root show and that way you get to be a bit more creative when you arrange them.

Anyways...I will post more flower pictures later.
We should soon be starting our Christmas decoration frenzy.  
 
Hope you're all gonna stay tuned. / Annika
 
 

the go nuts box

One of those things I really like about this season is the foods and smells it brings. I love when the first clementines/satsumas are in store. They have this lemon like sourness, but they are the ones I like the most.  And when you start to find those big piles of walnuts and hazelnuts... you're really starting to feel the season. I like to take all of that with me home. 
When you buy clementines, you sometimes get them in a 'not so nice looking' wooden box and even I like to keep stuff (have this idea of turning anything into something usable) most times I just get rid of it. But this year I had THE idea. I wanted to turn it into a usable, but pretty wooden box. 

I call it "the go nuts" box. 

 
 
 
This was a fairly simple project but I will write a more detailed instruction pdf with pictures later and post here as well. If you have any questions about this project, just ask in the comments for this posts. Happy project! /Annika
