Vintage Blog Hop – Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Michelle from Vintage Street Market put together a fun little mini vintage blog hop.  Check out inspiration posted earlier this week with the details.

Vintage Christmas Advent Calendar

One of my favorite themes around the house for the holidays and a great Christmas carol is ‘Hark the Herald Angels  Sing.’

I have friends who celebrate this season in many different ways, but for my family and I we celebrate CHRISTmas.  The Christmas story involves a lot of beautiful messengers called ‘angels’ who share ‘tidings of comfort and joy.’  So I thought I’d do a little tour of decor which involves a lot of angels.  As well, I’d like to share a couple of fun quick ornament ideas . . . a recent one and one from a couple years ago.  Click on photos if you’d like a closer look.

I hope you enjoy!  Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

The How To:

  1. Drill a small hole in the top of the tin.
  2. Cut out and place vintage image in the center of your tin.  Adhere with glue.
  3. Next place glue or Mod Podge around the edge of the tin.
  4. Sprinkle Glass glitter on the wet glue.  Allow to dry.
  5. Thread and tie the ribbon through the hole, hang and enjoy.

Here’s a little tutorial from the past to music.  Enjoy and warmest Christmas and New Year Wishes!
