Enjoy the true Christmas spirit with 40 inspirational crafts that incorporate religious items -- objects that commemorate the holy day of Christ's birth and give your home that special holiday glow. From miniature angel houses to cross-shaped bookmarks, there's something to transform every room, set on every table, hang on every wall, and dress up every window. Decoupage a scriptural frame to display your favorite Bible verse. Instead of the usual wooden creche, set up a beaded Nativity scene; you just cut out the patterns, sew on the beads, and hang them with gold thread. (You'll find designs for Mary and Jesus, Joseph, a shepherd, the three Wise Men, an angel, a donkey, and a camel.) Cross-stitch a Christmas sentiment, light a candle lantern decorated with a holly-and-berry pattern and a cross, and make a beautiful Bible cover. And keep those treasured photos and cards safe in a beautiful memory album. You'll cherish these precious items for many Christmases to come!

Fill your home with beautifully crafted decorations and accessories that incorporate traditional Christmas elements--angels, spiritual quotations, images of the Holy Family, and other relevant motifs. These subjects have often resulted in a lot of poorly designed merchandise, but here, for a refreshing change, the projects are very attractive and beautifully presented. Though religious imagery predominates, the projects are by no means overwhelmed by them. The designs are tasteful, even elegant, and many can certainly be adapted for the less devoutly inclined. The various embroidered, embellished, and quilted Bible covers, for example, can just as easily be used as photo-album covers. The multitude of picture frames, bookmarks, greeting cards, and gift-wrappings can incorporate more secular imagery, if desired. And a number of the projects can fit into a home of almost any leaning: the chair covers, kissing ball, serving tray, decorative plates, and quilted hangings can make anyone's holidays more festive. --Amy Handy
