I love my new hutch, since giving our kitchen a makeover last month I’ve really had a great time decorating it, rearranging it, finding new little trinkets in the perfect colors to add to it (ok, I don’t get out much). But you know what has been the best part yet? Getting the hutch gussied up for Christmas!
As you’ve probably noticed in recent posts like my Rustic Christmas tree, and my how to posts for Wreaths and Swags, my Christmas decorations tend to lean towards the traditional farmhouse look with vintage touches.
This Christmas hutch from Craftberry Bush is actually what I envisioned when I thought about adding Christmas elements to the hutch, but when I set foot in the Home Depot and came across the Martha Stewart Collection of bright blues and silver Christmas decorations I knew that is what I had to have to make my kitchen hutch pop this holiday season!
I honestly got a little bit giddy when I found these pinecone ornaments. I love them as they are, but when I flipped them over I knew instantly they needed to be tiny trees.
How to make Pinecone Trees
Aren’t these little ‘trees’ the cutest?! They are SUPER easy to make.
You will need:
- 1 pkg of Martha Stewart Shatterproof pinecone ornaments
- 2 – 1″PVC box adapter (found in the electrical dept.)
- Darice adhesive Bling on a Roll
- Hot Glue
How to assemble the Christmas trees-
- Remove pine and ornament hanger from the pinecone.
- Apply adhesive bling to the PVC adapter
- Hot glue pine cone ornament to the adapter by running a heavy bead of glue along the inside edge of the PVC adapter.
For the smaller ‘trees’ you will need the smaller 6 pk. of pinecones and a 1/2″ PVC adapter.
Styling a hutch is easy by combining elements you already have with new ornaments.
Below is a few ideas to get you started decorating your Christmas hutch:
Choose a color scheme- I went with blue, white and silver which co-ordinated well with the existing dishes, and a few things I had around the house.
Add bulbs to a tiered tray and/or pedestal to add visual height- but don’t forget to go low too. Add in different size bulbs to bowls and tea cups to fill in the spaces between higher items.
Add decorations around and on top of the hutch– I added a small white tree with bulbs and white lights to continue the decor to the whole corner of the kitchen. Plus, I balanced it by adding visually heavy items to the top of the hutch. Fill oversize jars with remaining bulbs (think pickle jars and wire baskets). A trick to make your bulbs stretch is to add grocery bags to the bottom of the jars that aren’t exposed and only add 5 or 6 bulbs to the top.
I added a small painted sign to tie it all together. I purchased a 1 x 6 knotty pine board and painted it with leftover kitchen paint, then added a holiday phrase with vinyl stickers.
Add a few Christmas lights So you can enjoy your decorated Christmas hutch even at night.
Use unexpected items like decorative holiday picks to add a little sparkle in otherwise empty areas.
Have a healthy mixture of big and small items, at varying heights to draw the eye around the hutch.
Make small groups of items to create a Christmas scene. Plus a small touch of fake snow makes it extra wintery.
What I purchased to create this Christmas hutch-
- 1 pkg of Martha Stewart Shatter Resistant Ornaments in Silver and Blue 101 pieces
- 1 pkg Decorative Christmas picks
- 3 pkg Martha Stewart Living Shatter Resistant Silver Pinecones 2 per pkg
- 2 pkg Martha Stewart Living Shatter Resistant Pinecone shaped ornaments 6 per pkg
- PVC box adaptors
- 1- 1″ x 6″ pine board
- 1 pkg Martha Stewart Living Silver bead garland
