Two candy canes form a heart. An old metal grater acts as the base for a simple decoration that can be either hung from a hook or left leaning against the wall.
I like the idea that christmas decorations are not completely separate from their surroundings, that somehow they thematically link to the room they're put in. Hence the grater greets breakfast munchers and dinner guests alike in our kitchen during the holiday season. An old rolling pin would also be a good starting point for a kitchen decorations. A selection of cookie cutters (old and new) is a nice alternative, or a bunch of fragrant cinnamon sticks tied together with twine.
