We love everything retro and so these vintage Christmas crafts are some we can’t wait to make! Some of these use actual vintage elements while others are newer items made to look old. Either way, we love the look!
Check out your local thrift and antique shops, look online at websites like Ebay, and go to yard sales to find some of the elements needed for these projects. Have a very merry vintage Christmas!
