Dream in Cream


The holiday season has a way of sparking the creative spirit. Feeling crafty? Gather old buttons, notions and vintage trim and try one of these four easy yet elegant Christmas crafts.


These churches have lights placed behind the doors, creating a warm and welcoming feel when the lights go down. Store-bought or handmade, the simplistic white-on-white is an elegant Chic Vintage look. If you have plain wooden or paper churches, brush on a coat of clear-drying craft glue and sprinkle with vintage mica snow and glitter. If your church doesn't have a night-light stand attached to it, drill a small hole and add one yourself. The serene look is completed with frosted white Christmas trees and a dusting of vintage mica snow on the ground.
