Hey y’all, it’s time for Thrifting with the Gals monthly blog hop!
Today I thought you’d like to see some of my favorite Vintage Christmas Decorations and how I use them around the house for Christmas.
I love using my unique items for a creative Farmhouse style holiday decor.
We are excited to have Lynn from Quaker Hill Farm joining us for Thrifting with the Gals. If you are joining me from Lynn’s post, Welcome!
Vintage Christmas Containers
I love adding Christmas Trees throughout the house during the holidays and I also thrift for unique containers to hold them.
Here, I used a wooden hat box and a crusty galvanized bucket to hold a grouping of two small trees.
Old crocks are another favorite container for large and small trees.
My number one favorite Christmas Tree container is this Vintage Antique French Zinc Grape Hod for Gathering Grapes. When I purchased it, I thought I’d use it on my porch, however it gets so much more attention here every Christmas.
You can see how we made planters that look like this container here.
Another favorite thrift store find is old Christmas decor boxes. The boxes are as much fun to display as what’s inside.
I love finding authentic Shiny Brite ornaments still in their original box. I like to stack the boxes after I decorate the tree with the ornaments.
Vintage Christmas Decorations – Shiny Brites
One of my favorite finds for Christmas decorating is vintage Shiny Brites. I’ve been fortunate to find several great deals at consignment shops and donation centers.
This tree is filled with nothing but vintage shiny brites and is my number one most shared tree ever.
Don’t expect to find a great deal at most antique shops because these will be pricey. However, don’t give up and keep looking for those deals. I found my last old box for $.99 at a Goodwill.
I love using the Shiny Brites on my tree, however they also look great in a basket, bowl or vase.
Anything Red or Green
When I run across something red or green, I immediately think “that would be great to display at Christmas”.
This chippy red tool box is a prime example. I have so many tool boxes I’ve picked up over the year but I had to add this one for Christmas.
The green in this wooden crate works well all year long, but once Christmas season begins, I can’t wait to fill it with unique holiday items.
This red metal jug was a more recent find. I can see it filled with Christmas greenery but love it just as it is for a bright Christmas accent.
Another favorite thrift store find is this vintage paper roller. I love filling it with festive Christmas decor each year.
As you can see I love using Antique Candle Co.’s candles throughout the house during the holidays.
Finally, I love adding vintage or thrifted art for Christmas. This needlepoint covered bridge is a favorite to add to my screened porch.
In addition, the cardinal print also works well for the holidays and I don’t have to worry about them becoming damaged since they were so inexpensive.
I hope you enjoyed all these thrifted Vintage Christmas Decorations and ideas.
