One of my favourite Christmas decorating jobs (besides the tree of course- see past trees, here, here, and here) is my Christmas Vignette. I always wish I had a mantle to spiff up, but I compensate with a kitchen hutch… or shelves in the case this year (see my 2015 and 2016 Christmas kitchen hutch). This Vintage Inspired Christmas Vignette is jam packed with oodles of fun finds and collectables from years past. Your vintage lovin’ heart is going to drown in all this goodness packed onto 5 little shelves!
PLUS for all you lucky little mantle owners, I’ve teamed up with some blogging friends to bring you a series of ideas to get your Christmas decorating on. Just read on to the bottom of this post to find the links to their blogs.
Vintage Inspired Christmas Vignette
I was a little hesitant to get my vintage Christmas on this year since my house went through a pretty drastic update since last season. But I just can’t resist red, green, and plaid this time of year!
These shelves are about 3 times the width of my previous hutch so I was able to incorporate a few of my new painted sign designs. You can find the cut files for these in my ETSY shop.
I had some fun creating a few knock of vintage items too. See those Thermos’ above? Yep, 100% made out of garbage. Stay tuned for that Simple DIY, I can’t wait to show you how easy they were to create!
I can’t help but smile when I walk past, putting the Vintage Inspired Christmas Vignette together really got me in the spirit!
Do you love bottle brush trees as much as I do? I have about 5 different kinds on this vignette! You can learn to make yarn bottle brush trees like the green one above in my DIY Bottle Brush Tree tutorial, or the Ruffle Ribbon Trees here.
My woold blanket collection is looking very festive down there. I’ve had my eyes on a few patterns, I found the green one a few months ago at a thrift shop for $9!! Now if I could stumble upon a HBC Point blanket* all my dreams would have come true. *affiliate
Just incase I left room for it on top, ha.

You’re so sweet, thank you!!
You have such amazing vintage collections, Virginia! Your shelf is beautiful! I wish I had a little bit of that goodness to add to my kitchen shelf… thanks for joining in on this hop!
It looks great! You have so many pretty Christmas pieces. Love those white houses as the top!

So jealous of all your vintage pieces Virginia! Your shelves look fantastic!
I absolutely adore your vintage Christmas setup!! It’s so good! I think you have me thinking about trying to look for vintage pieces for next year. Oh, and I’m not a mantle owner either so it’s fun to see someone else in this hop without one!
