In her newest volume, Susan Waggoner recaptures the magic of Christmases past with the vintage crafts projects readers have been craving. Inspired by the most sought-after treasures from the 1920s through the 1960s, Waggoner recreates a tempting array of decorations and provides step-by-step instructions that allow anyone to deck their halls with cellophane wreaths, glittered glass ornament balls, beaded bell garlands, and whimsical, tinsel-bedecked treat cups. Those pressed for time will also find quick crafts for every decade, along with style notes and decorating tips to pull it all together. Nostalgic bonus art throughout provides a host of images to use in greeting cards and photo holders. And to keep spirits merry and energy flowing, Waggoner includes a sampler of easy-to-make candy recipes, from Mackinac Island Fudge to old-fashioned soft caramels. Praise for Have Yourself a Very Vintage Christmas: "If you're looking for nostalgia or a retro style, this is the perfect book to help you plan your Christmas decorations. . . . A well-thought-out themed book for any craft collection." -- Library Journal

"Packed with an amazing amount of information and/or tips for having a fab retro holiday of your own." -- The Costco Connection
