The Holidays are always filled with nostalgia and memories. We watch Christmas classics like White Christmas and Miracle on 34th St. while baking grandma’s special gingerbread recipe; all the while never growing bored of the same plot lines and lyrics to all the Christmas carols. Traditions are part of what make Christmas so special and looking back to Christmas’s Past helps us look forward to continuing those same special traditions. Many of my decorations are antique’s and one of my favorite pieces is my Christmas Postcard Garland. I love antiques and whenever I go antiquing, i love to look through the old postcards and magazines. This holiday, I was inspired to make a garland from some of my favorite postcards adding some added value with sparkles and glitter.
Its a easy, fun way to add some sparkle and nostalgia to your Christmas decor
