Antique Photo Garland - Vintage/Country Style Decorating Ideas

Welcome back my dears.
Today is a fun idea for an all year vintage style vignette.
Today I am sharing a Garland made with twine and clothes pins!

This season I am doing more winter than "Christmas".
Lots of neutrals and bits of burlap and lace.
I usually do a big wreath on my antique mirror.
But this year I wanted something different.
For winter, I just had to do something wonderful with my vintage photos.
But I did not want to damage them or use any glue or tape.
So clothes pins were a perfect solution... and a cute one too!
What says "Country" more than clothes pins and twine?
I added these darling little burlap flowers from the scrap booking section of a craft store.
There are tons of cute things for your Vintage decor in the craft section!
I just knotted the twine on the ends and secured it with a push pin.
But that looks a little plain to me.
So I got into my button collection.
And found some cute brown ones.
Then added poster sticky-stuff to the backs.
This stuff is great.. does not damage the walls and works great for small trinkets.
So my garland has some buttons on the ends and looks so cute.
This year I am all about reworking what you have.
Shopping your own home and thinking outside the box for the holidays.
This little vignette is on my front entry... 
I will show you it all together in my "Christmas in the Country" home tour after Thanksgiving.

Happy Holidays and God Bless!
