Advent-ure 2015: Swedish Hearts Tutorial
In Sweden, the celebration of Santa Lucia on December 13th is a big part of the Christmas advent tradition. Here's a little advent-ure in woven paper for you and your kids to try.
Use them as ornaments or as little baskets for small goodies. Make them large or small. Either way, the result is delightful.
If you have a hard time getting the hang of the weaving, watch this You Tube video made by Maggie Woodley of Red Ted Art.
And for a stunning 2 minute Christmas event, watch the celebration of Santa Lucia.
In the home, one daughter will be St. Lucia and wake the family with buns and coffee as she visits each member wearing a long white robe and crown of lights.
