5 steps to perfect Christmas décor from Anvil Cottage Crafts
Grab a cup of something warming (cocoa or merlot!), put your feet up in front of a crackling log fire and let us sort your décor this Christmas. From decorations to lighting, we offer a range of handcrafted items that will work for your home.
Our rustic style pieces made from horseshoes are simply perfect for horse lovers or anyone who enjoys country living. Whether you live in a pretty village or a vibrant city, treat your home to something from Anvil Cottage Crafts this Christmas.
The hanging of wreaths on doors began in Roman times and is now an established Christmas tradition. A wreath on the door creates a really welcoming feel, signalling that guests will get a warm reception in your home. At Anvil Cottage Crafts, our handcrafted wreath is made from horseshoes, rather than foliage, adding a unique twist.
Our horseshoe wreath, made from end of stock horseshoes for a uniform look, will add a super stylish touch to any front door and can also be used indoors. You can add your own personal stamp by threading a scarf through the wreath or decorating it to complement your country style home.
Personalise your horseshoe wreath to suit your seasonal style
Christmas trees first became popular during the Victorian era and ever since have played a vital part in the annual festivities. The tree is at the heart of the home, whether yours is real or faux. Why not try something different this year to decorate your home? At Anvil Cottage Crafts, we offer a choice of 3,4 or 5 tier Christmas trees in two styles made from horseshoes.
Ideal for equestrian enthusiasts or those who enjoy country living, one of our stylish pieces could be a main Christmas tree or an additional decoration for an entrance hall or dining room. You can decorate the tree with festive lights and rustic style decorations to suit your style. The main advantage of our trees is that you can use them for many years to come. At Anvil Cottage Crafts, our trees are not just for Christmas!
