DIY Vintage Nostalgic Christmas Decorations
Over the holidays, we will face the choice of whether to opt for modern decorations or to base our decor in yonder years.
If you love the look of items that look like they belong to an earlier era, then vintage Christmas decorations are most likely appealing to you. You don't have to spend a fortune. For example, a dollar store clock can be transformed to look like it has been inherited down the generations.
At a thrift store, you can find items like clocks, bells, ribbons, and houses. The trees and snowflakes can be purchased from a craft store or dollar store.
Make this treasure trove by covering a box in the paper of your choice, and then gather a selection of vintage-style baubles with a tree and a retro-looking Santa.
Retro Frame Art
This would make a sweet gift. You can use Christmas cards for the base of your frame. To age your frame, you could take some sandpaper to it and adorn it with a little bottle brush tree.
Christmas Collage Box
Engulf yourself in nostalgia with this adorable project. To recreate this idea, you'll need a small round cardboard box with a lid and other retro decorations.
Antique Christmas Tin
If you come across old tins, they are so much fun to decorate and add to your vintage-style decorations. Little bottle brush trees make for a sweet addition and other items, including a Santa.
Vintage Santa Mugs
A vintage Santa mug with decorated bottle brush trees would make for adorable centrepieces or gifts to give during the holiday season.
