38 In Christmas

Simple nordic holiday vignette

Today I thought I show you my really simple nordic holiday vignette. The other day I painted this watercolour deer and I’m in love! I clipped it onto my diy clipboard and then decorated the whole cabinet top in a simple nordic style for Christmas! 


I put the clipboard on top of three stacked frames to make it a bit higher and just added these lovely pine type branches around it. We found them while going for a walk through a little pine park the other day and I knew they’d be perfect for decorating! I also added some fake red berries.. just for a little bit of colour… although I want to keep it as neutral as possible this year.

And I arranged fairy lights in between the branches, so this is how it looks at night… simple-nordic-holiday-vignette-kreativk.net

      Hahaha, you’re so sweet! You know what, I really wanted to make it available to download but I painted it on normal paper, not watercolour paper, and when I scanned it, you could see the waves the paper got by getting wet from the watercolours, which doesn’t happen with watercolour paper! So, my plan is, really really promise, to paint it all over on watercolour paper! Will try asap! Thank you so much Jaclyn!!

    Katrin, this is BEAUTIFUL!!! You’re very talented! What a beautiful painting you did and the way you’ve used the frames to add height to the vignette was so smart. I think the berries give it just the right amount of color and of course the lights are awesome.

    I am really having a hard time deciding which is my favorite project from this season. They are all so spectacular. This little deer is just so dear (couldn’t resist) and you’ve added just enough color to the vignette. I love everything you are doing this season. Can I move in? I want to be surrounded by all this loveliness!
