Yup, it's my favorite holiday. I love collecting vintage Christmas all year long.
Soon I'll be dragging out the boxes of vintage ornaments and Christmas kitsch to make some killer wreaths. Last year after all the wreath making was done I ended up with a pile of little vintage ornament boxes, mostly Shiny Brites.
Ahhh, these boxes are just way too cool to toss away. I saved them, and probably accumulated a few more. I was thinking they would make great little diorama ornies.
So I pulled out a few supplies. If you want to make some and recycle your old boxes here is a list of what I used.
Chenille stems, tinsel, vintage xmas wrapping paper, vintage xmas bits and baubles, vintage batting (for that perfect patina), vintage mica flakes, little bells, foam core and lots of glue.
Put all this together and voila!
Fun, fun, fun! My daughters were very impressed with my project. That really says something when the teenagers are motivated to comment.
Try it and have fun!!
