Are you decking the halls and hanging the stockings with care? As a modernist, decorating for the holiday season can be a challenge.

This vintage Christmas decoration DIY is just the trick.

Christmas Magic, a book filled with festive craft projects, is the work of Margaret Perry and was originally published in 1964. These “mobile Christmas cards” are simple to make and even easier to personalize. We found these images on Google, and they are too good not to share. If you’d like your own copy, head to Amazon!

Materials:

  • Paper*
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Matching thread
  • Glue

*Tip! While card stock or construction paper would certainly suffice, consider adding even more mid century flair to your creations by covering them with patterned wallpaper samples or wrapping paper.
