If you have ever been to Kitchen Kettle Village during the holidays, you have seen our various holiday decorations. It typically takes a little over a week to decorate the entire Village. Many people contribute, which adds to our cozy family-friendly feel. Year after year, we have guests ask us about our carolers by the Bake Shop. How are they made? Where can I buy them? So here’s the story… they were purchased about 20 years ago and sadly the vendor no longer exists. It’s ok though, we can walk you through the step by step process to make your own carolers.
Let’s get started:
8. Next, grab your hat and scarf. Nail the hat onto the top of your caroler. This will also help secure the hair.
9. Secure their “hands”. We opted to have ours looking like they are in the prayer position or holding their song sheets.
10. Place them. Like I mentioned before, ours are on steps (we made a riser stand to resemble a choir). If you have a porch, you could simply place them on your stairs or lining your walkway. Get creative!
Our Kitchen Kettle Village Carolers
Have fun with this project, make them your own. The quirkier the better. They make a charming, rustic, whimsical Christmas decoration and they’ll be a huge hit. Send us pictures of your finished carolers. We’d love to see them and share on Facebook & Instagram!
In an effort to keep you up-to-date with Village hours and best practices in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Take advantage of your time now at home to plan a future adventure when it is safe to travel again. Why not start planning your next trip to Lancaster County, PA? If you have visited before, you might want to stay a little longer or plan a few day trips to our area because there is so much to see and do.
In these uncertain times it is easy to feel negative and sad, but I encourage you to look at the glass (or jelly jar) half full. Here a few ways we can all stay positive during the COVID-19 crisis.
Whatever your preference, sleeping over at Kitchen Kettle Village is an experience not to be missed. There are studio rooms, one-bedroom suites, two-bedroom suites and “traditional” (if you call our one-of-a-kind decorating traditional) hotel rooms.
