Repurposing (Upcycled) House Decorations: Using Shadow Boxes to Celebrate the Season
Yesterday, I was cleaning out my cabinet and saw the shadow boxes picture frames that I use to put our family pictures. I got a flash of inspiration! Wouldn’t it be great to cut up some old Christmas cards and put them in the shadow boxes to decorate for the Christmas season?
Here are some old cards that I had lying around from my mother’s card collection. My mother was obsessed with greeting cards of all types, and she collected them like a fiend. Most of the time, she got them for free in some fashion or another, like through those annoying pleas for donations that come in the mail.
I cut out the card and put it in one of the frames. This one had a mat so it made it easier. The others did not.
Voila! Instant Christmas decorations!
