There’s something extra Christmasy about vintage things, especially vintage Christmas things! This garland is inspired by the beautiful vintage lace both of my grandmothers crocheted for Christmas. Whether their thread was crafted into long, intricate tablecloths or stiff snowflakes for the Christmas tree, lace always reminds me of special times and special loved ones. Hanging this dainty garland up above my fireplace makes the holidays feel extra cozy and warm.
