Have yourself a vintage Christmas
Tips to make this Christmas a vintage one…
all wrapped up
Have a go at Japanese Furoshiki wrapping using a vintage scarf and gift within a gift. A beautiful eco alternative to wrapping paper.
Time to sparkle
Tis the season to sparkle and vintage brooches are the perfect way to add a little extra to both Christmas outfits and gift wrap. Attach a brooch to your finished gift or give as a beautiful original piece.
Brooches can be easily converted to necklaces using brooch converters or jump rings, making them even more wearable.
deck the halls
A return to the simple but beautiful, homemade decorations of Christmas past. Garlands made from fruit and fir, popcorn or dried orange segments. Oranges studded with cloves to scent the room. An abundance of ornate vintage glass decorations and cards can be found on Etsy.
GIVE A LITTLE, GET A Lot
In times gone past a visit to the less fortunate bearing gifts was tradition. Slip some extra tins to the food bank, give a charity donation or volunteer a day at your local homeless shelter and feel the real spirit of Christmas.
Giving never felt so good.
All that’s left is to enjoy something mulled, pop on a Wonderful Life and give yourself over to the festivities.
Wishing you all peace and joy.
