The Story of the Icelandic Yule Cat and How He Is Going to EAT YOU Holiday Xmas tree Ornament Wood -- 1000 Handmade Project
Materials: wood, glue, paint, paper, ink, humor
4 inches around, decoupage on wood.
I am making 1000 holiday ornaments this year. Maybe this one is yours.
In Iceland, if you don't get new clothing and WEAR them on Xmas, a giant black cat demon will come down from the mountains and eat you. This legend was passed down and told so that people would get their knitting done in time for xmas and give family members new hand knit items like socks and such.
Don't let the Jólakötturinn get you!

After learning about the Yule Cat on a trip to Iceland in August, I knew I had to have this. (I also ordered 4 of the 2 packs). Seller was quick to answer my questions (within minutes!) and was a pleasure to work with. Items were exactly as shown and quality is good. Ordering was easy, items shipped on time and arrived quickly and in great shape. I can't wait to send them to friends along with the Jólakötturinn Christmas cards.
Our Yule Cat was perfect! It arrived quickly too. Absolutely love this, hope to order more every year!
Exactly as pictured! Excited to add this to our ornament collection, as our cat's name is Jola and we got her on Christmas!
I love the Jólakötturinn and all the lore surrounding Yule. This ornament was perfect for me because I love a little darkness in Christmas. The best part? I thought it was lost in the mail so I contacted the seller, who promptly started preparations to send another for free. It turned up later that day and I updated the seller, but the gesture was appreciated, still.
