Christmas Kitchen Corner Vignette

December 02, 2012
My kitchen is not very big so I don't have a lot of space to decorate, but I always love to change up this little corner built in.

I started going rustic vintage, and ended up with more of a rustic country corner. I brought this vintage Sears radio inside from our garage. (My husband uses it in the summer to listen to Twins baseball all the time.) On top is a zinc jar cover with a grubby flameless votive candle and a country shoe ornament.

Next a couple white glittery stars and a rusty little reproduction lantern.

A real vintage oil lamp, another flameless candle in a Jello mold, and a third glittery star are grouped with the primitive Santa.

A little artificial tree in a crock anchors the vignette.

Cookie cutters, crocheted snowflakes, rag balls and other country ornaments decorate the tree.

I have an old Minnesota license plate in white and green from my era hanging on the wall behind the tree. I made the little felt tree mittens ages ago.

I also made this little star Santa and many more like him. I even sold some at a couple craft sales.

The bottom of the corner shelves have crocks and crockery bowls, my experiment with the thrifted colander and Christmas lights. I saw some pendant lights made from colanders on Pinterest, and the star pattern coming out of the holes was really cool. Battery operated Christmas lights just don't create that much light.

It wasn't a total failure just nothing spectacular.

More Christmas decorating to come.

  11. Love your little Christmas corner. Wish I had a corner in my kitchen like that. After I saw your corner cabinet display of old crocks, I looked at mine to see I could convert it, but no way. I hate those
    Lazy Susans in the corners.
    Happy Christmas.
