Breathe a spirit of yesteryear into your home with a vintage Christmas tree decoration
This year, the vintage Christmas decoration is making a comeback on the front of the stage and guarantees a friendly and nostalgic atmosphere straight out of the films of yesteryear. So what do you think of a Christmas tree decoration inspired by vintage style that will immediately become the star of your interior? Let's take a look at this cute festive tree and other matching items in more detail.
Let's start with the essential object that needs special attention: the vintage Christmas ball available in a wide range of colors, patterns and sizes. Deavita.fr will give you two DIY ideas in our article, but if you don't have enough free time, take a quick tour of the antique shops. Also take into account that vintage ornaments are extremely fragile.
Continue with adding other decorations such as burlap ribbon. Given the fragile nature of vintage ornaments, you might want to lay this one down ahead of time. Cut the ribbon into a few 40 cm long pieces and arrange them on different sections of the festive tree. Consider also incorporating thick wool and a garland of wooden beads. For your information, Christmas ornaments made of wooden beads allow you to create a creative and original decor.
