Vintage Sparkle 15 Festive Holiday Ornaments

vintage-sparkle-festive-ornamentsI love decorating my home for the holidays and now that we have grandchildren in our lives, I tend to go overboard with the holiday decor. I love to add decorations in almost every room of our home and my husband takes care of doing all of our outdoor lights & yard decor.

Recently I received an arts & crafts kit called “Vintage Sparkle 15 Festive Ornaments to Fold, Fill & Hang” by Princeton Architectural Press. The kit comes packaged in a nice storage box and inside you’ll find 15 flattened ornament boxes with gold string for hanging.

These boxes are super easy to assemble and only take seconds to pop them up. You can then fill them up and hang them onto a Christmas tree, wreath, from your mantle, use as table favors/placecard settings or if you & the children enjoy doing a countdown to Christmas type of thing, use them for advent.

The designs that are printed on them remind me of the olden days when my grandmother would decorate her home for the holidays. Back in those days homemade decorations & ornaments were the “in” thing! Gosh, I really miss those days when things were more simple and had more meaning.

I sat down one evening and assembled all of the ornament boxes and the next day I headed to my local dollar discount store to pick up 30 tiny treasures to fit inside. I have two grandchildren now, so I needed 2 tiny items for each of my 15 boxes. Once the treasures were inside, I added the including gold hanging string and closed them up.

Once the holidays get here…we will be counting down the 15 days leading up to Christmas and letting my granddaughter & grandson take turns opening up one of the boxes each day…so that they can enjoy the treasures that I placed inside. Once the holiday is over, I’m going to unfold the boxes, place them back into the storage box and use them again next year.

    These ornaments are a blast from somewhere in my past. I remember them hanging on trees by a corner. They are pretty.

  2. I love collecting little bitty boxes and sometimes have to clear out my stash to the trash, since it can get a bit ridiculous. These are lovely and not as challenging as the origami figures I’m learning to fold now. They would look great on the tree, and you can add things like glitter to make them even more festive.

    These are cute & the idea of putting small goodies in them before the holidays is a good one. Kids would love that.

  4. These would be very fun to make and fill with treasures. I love the dollar store for things like that.

    This is the first time I have heard about these holiday boxes, but I love your idea of placing tiny little items in them and letting kids open them up one at a time in the days before Christmas. The boxes are also very easy to assemble.

  6. I haven’t seen these ornaments before. I think this is such a fun idea for little gifts on the tree. It is just crazy that Christmas is right around the corner.
