The Emily Dawe Christmas Collection
Hobbycraft are proud to present Emily Dawe’s curated Christmas Collection, bringing fresh colours to traditionally festive shapes. As an interior stylist, Emily understands colours and how they work together. For her colletion, she has looked at which colour trends have been spotted throught this year, one being a 70s, peach and teal vintage colour palette. As peach is having a resurgence, Emily wanted to make this one of the main colours within her collection. Paired with mint green, taupe, pops of coral, and dashes of black and gold, she feels that this palette is contemporary with an air of fun! Christmas is such a wonderful and whimsical time of year, where you can go all out with decking the halls and trimming the tree, so why should you always stick to the traditional colours of green and red?
Hobbycraft have challenged a group of makers with hugely varying styles of working to create their own collection using core Christmas bases and decorative components of their choice. The breadth of work received has been something to behold, with the personalities of each individual shining through their collections!
“I absolutely loved creating the little winter scene in the dome, I think painting the house and the
tree completely transformed them. Just by adding a coral chimney gives the house some quirky
charm, and my signature star (I have tattoos of these wonky stars on my wrist) just finishes it
perfectly. I’m definitely going to have at least one of these in my home this Christmas!”
“Although the three baubles have different designs, I think they sit really nicely together. My
favourite is the peach one with black dashes – it’s funny, it’s often the simplest ideas that works
the best! I’m a huge fan of a tassel, so I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my baubles
somehow, it gives them quite a boho feel which I love.”
“Usually my paper wreaths are made up of green holly leaves with red berries, so I was excited
to produce one using just peach painted paper. Scoring and folding the papers gave shadow
and depth to the wreath, rather than looking flat and unrealistic. I think the combination of
different shaped leaves worked really well.”
