I have a vintage Christmas village from my grandma and mom. I remember it being displayed in their homes when I was growing up. For a festive look, I wanted to design a Vintage Style Christmas Wreath using the village pieces.
Adding a touch of vintage to my Christmas decorating always gets my creative juices flowing.
This post is my first time collaborating with The International Bloggers Club. It’s going to be a great experience working with these talented bloggers.
Each blogger has creative and innovative Christmas décor to share with you. I will be sharing their links at the end of this post for you to enjoy.
Digging through my Christmas craft stash and ornaments, I decided to use what I had, including a 26 inch Mountain Meadow wreath from Balsam Hill. Now I was ready to get started.
I carefully placed the village houses and church throughout the wreath.
Then it was time to add a few Christmas picks. I like the long “needles”, crystalized stems and bright red berries.
Each of the handmade ceramic bells were a gift from my grandma. They hung on my first Christmas tree as a married woman. (That was a very long time ago.)
Aren’t they darling? I love the hand-painting and script.
For more texture and color, I tucked in vintage and new bottle brush trees.
The red and gold trees were from the village, originally. And I love it.
Hanging the newly decorated Vintage Christmas Wreath on a thrifted red chair was ideal for styling a Christmas vignette.
Using my hymnal as an accessory opened to “Silent Night” is apropos for Christmas.
Having this tiny spoon as a bookmarker was a perfect addition to my vignette. As it was another gift for our first married Christmas.
You can design your own Vintage Christmas Wreath with creativity and imagination. I hope you have been inspired to decorate for the Holiday celebrations coming up soon.
