Every year around the holidays, thousands of wonderful posts appear on our radar that highlight mid century modern Christmas gifts, decorations, ornaments, and cards. This year, I wanted to point out 10 of the very best articles I’ve come across. Sure, there are lots of television or magazine-based articles, but I’m more drawn to designers, bloggers, and average folks with a love for beautiful things. So, here goes…
1. Mid-Century Modern Christmas Decorations – in the Ranchos! - Rancho Romance
A wonderful post by a homeowner in Long Beach, California, as she documents their first Christmas in their Cliff May rancho home. Beautiful photos…especially love the “Dad” stocking.
2. Tinselmania: 73 Vintage Aluminum Christmas Trees – Retro Renovation
Check out this special slide show of 73 aluminum Christmas trees that are mini, small, medium, large and rescued from all sorts of locations.
3. Snowman Light Pole Topper – Retro Ranch Revamp
Kate introduces us to the new Snowman topper on her 1960s light pole. I’m not sure if Leo (the dog) is as impressed as we were.
4. It’s Beginning to Look Alot Like… – Mid Century Modern Love
Despite Brandy’s lack of love for the “stuff” of the holidays, we love her idea of hanging huge ornaments from the front of their Fred Bassetti home in the state of Washington.
The rustic Christmas tree stand is pretty simple to create and the hardest part of it is probably going out into the woods nearby and finding an old tree stump.
6. Felt Mobile Ornaments – No Pattern Required
Betty shares a ‘partridge in a pear tree’ hanging mobile felt ornament and will inspire you to create your own!
7. Quick Paper Christmas Trees – Crafty Modern
Here’s how to make quick paper Christmas trees. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this craft (and get as fancy as you like and please use glitter).
