It’s the most wonderful time of the year for crafters and DIY decorators! Ready to get down and get festive with all kinds of seasonal projects, from tree trimmings to table toppers? Haul out the yarn, felt, and craft glue, and let these 1960s and 1970s images and ideas from magazines like Better Homes & Gardens and McCall’s Christmas Make-It Ideas (shown above) be your inspiration for crafty creation!

About Cindy

Pun intended. Cindy loves dreaming up witty quips and groan-worthy wordplay. In fact, you could say this girl just wants to have puns. As an avid fan of the written word and a librarian at heart, she also loves used bookstores, especially ones that harbor cats. A lover of all things old, she takes every opportunity to nerd out on nostalgia.

    I love that these decorations are bursting with color and don’t restrict themselves to a seasonal scheme – I’d love to have some of them adorning my apartment all year. Great post, Cindy!

    Are there diy instructions included anywhere? Or at least list of materials used?
