An Old Fashion Christmas

Where would we be today without our fondest memories of Christmas when we were younger?

Dressed up in our little fancy outfits that our parents bought for us.

One of the things that we're always on my grandmom's Christmas tree was cardboard ornaments. Luckily today, we're able to recreate some of these treasures.

Simply print onto card stock, cutout and fold. Punch a hole at the top, add a bit of ribbon and hang.

Add a bit of glue to the edges with hints of glitter.


Remember the wreaths and table top christmas trees decorated with all sorts of VINTAGE ornaments?

Surprisingly so, we can recreate this - 50 years later.

Let's have some fun with VINTAGE style ornaments!

And maybe...we can start a new tradition in decorating each new year with some of our childhood memories.

Luckily for us, we can buy all that we'll need from the Dollar Tree.

  • Styrofoam wreath form 
  • Silver and gold tinsel garland or red and green 
  • Assorted Vintage Christmas ornaments
  • Hot glue and a glue gun
  • Ribbon for hanging 

Simply start with wrapping the garland around the wreath form, applying a dot of glue to keep in place.

Then merrily attach your VINTAGE ornaments, starting with the largest ones and working your way down to the smallest ones.

Making these are done the same way that we did in making our wreath. The only difference is using a foam tree form rather than a wreath form.

  • Foam tree form 
  • Silver and gold tinsel garland or red and green
  • Assorted Vintage Christmas ornaments 
  • Hot glue and a glue gun
  • Ribbon for hanging 

Remember these little elves? I have fond memories of my grandmother decorating her house with these.

Can you believe that you can buy these sweet little guys at the Dollar Tree? How beautiful!
