DIY Nordic Christmas Crafts

When it comes to Christmas, many of the elements we embrace in holiday food, decor and customs stem from Nordic traditions. The Northeastern European countries embrace rustic elements of nature in their holiday design, including authentic repurposed wood, faux powdery snow and red like the holly berries. 

With rustic decor being a huge trend in everyday home design, adding touches of Nordic decor in your house this holiday season is the perfect way to embrace tradition, while also keeping your seasonal spread cozy and on-trend.

Traditional advent calendars with chocolate or cardboard panels are a more common way to count down to Christmas, but these rustic DIY Wooden Blocks really make for a fun holiday display. Just change out the numbers to correlate to the days in December and keep track of how far away Christmas is. 

One of the mose versatile pieces of Christmas decor are these DIY Nordic Clips. They are perfect for clipping onto your Christmas tree for an extra ornament, or securing DIY gift bags together. This is a great craft to do with your kids, and can be used all throughout the holiday season. Our expert Coryanne Ettiene shows you how to do them in a video tutorial.

Finally, everyone "hearts" Christmas, so what better way to show it than with these beautiful DIY Nordic Hearts? They add a warm and homey touch to the season, and can be displayed anywhere. They also make for a perfect last-minute DIY gift for neighbors and acquaintances.
