I’m revisiting some of my Christmas decorating ideas from the past few years. One of my most memorable decorating years was when I transformed my farmhouse style hutch into a magical Christmas bakery.
I had a beautiful white hutch in my kitchen at the time and it was the perfect backdrop for all my Christmas decor.
Farmhouse Christmas Hutch
Using traditional red, green, and white with a bit of sparkle.
The BAKERY sign is a simple DIY. I bought a precut board, painted it with a couple coats of barn red paint, then stenciled on the letters and filled them in with white paint. You can find the large letter stencils at Walmart or your craft store.
I started with a cute set of boy/girl gingerbread that I’ve had for a few years; these are the newer version of what I have. Then added a couple sets of faux candy trees and a gingerbread house decoration.
Top of Hutch
Across the top of the hutch I added a frosted garland with red berries and pine cones and weaved a string of fairy lights through it for a little added sparkle.
A few vintage items from my stash- a little shoe shine box filled with pine cones and an old galvanized canister with a frosted branch.
Down the other end of my hutch was a little faux gingerbread house and candy tree in a red tray and an old green lantern.
To make the big (24×36) “COTTAGE” print I found a template on Pinterest and had it printed out at Staples for a few dollars; it’s an engineer print.
For a centerpiece on my farmhouse table I filled a galvanized container with greens and berry picks.
Next to the hutch, an antique stool holds a old crate with two mini trees.
To finish up my hutch I added a big basket with giant pinecones.
