Vintage Memories Christmas Tree


Gold Post Medal for All Time! 555 Posts

Vintage Memories Christmas TreeChristmas tree using cute vintage, quaint decorations: old childrens books, sheet music, old newspaper ads, paper dolls, old family photos and various items around the house!

I found many of these items at a used book sale! The old sheet music that I cut and rolled and tied with Christmas ribbon and hung, some old sheets of newspaper that I cut the ads for baking soda and perfume and added, even the paper dolls and tiny cardboard books were found at that one book sale!

I added small items I had around the house and I think it looks charming!

Total Time: 1/2 hour

Steps:

  1. Cut sheet music into 3 inch squares, roll up and tie with thick Christmas ribbon and hang!
  2. You can make paper dolls out of any coloring book! Have your kids or grandkids help you color the characters, then cut them out and hang them for a real old timey looking tree.

Replace vintage items upon my Christmas tree such as my children's infant spoons, homemade ornaments from my children and grandchildren, vintage jewelry, pine cones adorned with ribbons that came from camping trips, dried flowers that came from my garden, my adult children's childhood monogrammed sweaters are placed under the tree along with my 63 year old Betty Wetsy doll.
