Creating a Christmas Vignette with Found Items

Kathy from Petticoat Junktion has some fun collections of vintage objects that she’s gathered over the years.  These include antique toys and leather pouches, which she’s incorporated into her Christmas decor this year.

For one Christmas vignette, Kathy started by lightly coating an old leather tool belt with white spray paint.  This softened the color of the leather, and made it look almost as if it had been out in the snow.  She filled the pockets of the belt with candy canes and a vintage toy soldier, and hung it on the wall.  The finishing touch was a pretty ornament dangling from a clip on the belt.  It’s an unusual and eye-catching way to add a festive touch.
