Beautiful Christmas Brooches and Scarf Clips

Updated on February 3, 2015

Add seasonal fun with these lovely brooches and scarf clips

Scarves are stylish and versatile fashion accessories. They are also practical, providing extra warmth. It's no wonder that they have been popular for so many centuries.

At Christmas time, I love to decorate scarves with a seasonal brooch or scarf clip. Depending on your preference, you can add a touch of fun, some color, style or elegance to any outfit. Whichever way you prefer, they make a lovely Christmas gift or treat for yourself.

You can also experiment with tying your scarves in many different ways, or with adding a pretty scarf clip, ring or brooch. The video below can show you some fun variations of tying scarves, using scarf rings and brooches.

Christmas Wreaths

A wreath can be made of leaves, twigs, flowers, fruits or other materials formed into a ring shape. At Christmas time, they are used as decorations to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

They symbolize strength as they are often made from evergreens, which can survive the harshest of winters.

When you see a wreath on someone's door, you know they are ready to celebrate Christmas.

Christmas Trees

Christmas trees are a tradition associated with celebrating Christmas. Natural trees are usually pine, spruce or fir. Traditionally, they were decorated with edible goodies such as nuts and apples. Many families enjoy decorating their trees together, adding baubles, candy canes, animal shapes and Christmas lights.

Personally, I like to decorate my Christmas tree on Christmas eve, usually listening to some Christmas carols. It symbolises the start of Christmas for our family.

To reflect this tradition, I love to wear a stylish Christmas tree brooch, with beautiful blue, ruby red, emerald green and sparkling clear crystals.

Poinsettia - Christmas Star Flower

Poinsettias were cultivated by the Aztec Indians to make a reddish purple dye. After the Spanish conquest, poinsettias were used in Christian rituals and nativity processions.

They were introduced further north, in the USA, by JR Poinsett. He was the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, and he liked the plants so much that he sent some to his home in South Carolina. Later, he shared them with horticultural friends and botanical gardens.

Today, it is possible to get poinsettias in various colors (red, white, pink, gold, marbled, and variegated).

Christmas Bells

The American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the poem "Christmas Bells" in 1863 inspired by family tragedies. In 1872 the poem was set to music, and there are several versions of the carol. Although the carol "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" tells of sadness that "hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will to men", it finishes with the Christmas bells bringing renewed hope for peace.

Snowmen

In any country with winter snows, you will find the tradition of building snowmen. Easy to make, by rolling a large ball of snow for the body, and a smaller one for the head, some stones for the eyes and a carrot for the nose - I wonder if our very ancient ancestors made them too?

The world's largest snowman was constructed in Bethel, Maine, in 2008 and was 122 feet 1 inch tall. It was, in fact, a snow-woman, and was named in honor of Senator Olympia Snow who represented Maine.

      I really like the Christmas wreath pin. Very seasonal and would lost forever compared to a corsage.
