Deck the Halls

I’m a sucker for sweet, vintage Christmas decorations and right now finding vintage inspired images and replicas is so easy. There’s something about an old fashioned Santa Claus, bottle brush trees, Rudolph and Frosty, and tinsel that takes me back to the ornaments that we hung on our family tree each year as children. These things never go out of style, they only grow more cherished and important over time.

For my project today, I wanted to create a wall hanging with a large Bingo Card as my base.

All it took was to pick out some playful paper from the Christmas Mint line to use as my background and everything came together quickly.

The next step was to layer on all the goodies such as a vintage inspire postcard, bottle brush tree complete with mica flakes as the snow, glittered chipboard flourishes, traditional holly berry leaves, a glittered chipboard snowflake, a crepe paper ruffle and trim along the bottom edge, a bright cherry red vintage button, and tinsel to hang it with.

Let your favorite memories inspire you to create something for your home… will be like a walk down memory lane each time you glance at it throughout the holidays.
