Their warmth makes wood desirable and comforting in winter. As you can see, wood textures are hot this Holiday. With beautiful items like those, there are no reasons to complain.

Karen Kimmel holiday tree ornaments

+ The Nature+Holiday Ornaments by Los Angeles-based artist Karen Kimmel are absolutely stunning. Each wood veneer and colored acrylic laser cut disc comes in a hand silk-screened muslin sack laced with an ultra suede tie. You also get a cardboard letterpress card with a message by the artist. The ornament costs between $18 and $40 each at A+R. It makes a wonderful hostess gift. Via Happy Mundane

wooden decorations

+ Bugs and Fishes by Lupin shows us how to wrap a Faux Bois Parcel. This craft project relies on inexpensive supplies. Via Creature Comforts.

+ Who can resist the Pumpkin and Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwiches? Certainly not me. I give her a big thumb up for the presentation. Get the recipe on Cannelle et Vanille.

+ I spot the wooden star ornament on the December 2008 issue of Living etc. It is made by PTMD. Sadly, I cannot tell you where to find it.

+ Finally, I am in love with these Christmas stockings. They look magnificent hanging on the rustic mantel. Via Design Hole.

    Those wooden ornaments are adorable. I agree – I love how wood accents add warmth to the room which is especially important and comforting during the holiday season. I’ll have to look for those to give as gifts!

    I would love to know where I could get a tree branch like that. I have been looking for one to use as a multi-holiday tree. Can you please let me know? Thank You!!!
