Welcome to this month’s installment of Thrifty Style Team.This is the place where we get together with our talented and creative blogger friends every month. We each makeover, repurpose or transform something from our homes or thrift stores. This month you are in for a treat, as we each share thrifty Christmas ideas! A giant thank you to our friend Julie of Redhead Can Decorate for this great hop. We are sharing our DIY Christmas Matchbox – a Perfect Gift. Let’s get started!

Vintage Christmas PostcardsIf you have been following 2 Bees for awhile, then you know how much we love vintage postcards. Especially Christmas postcards! The coloring and graphics are stunningly beautiful! These postcards are part of my collection, inherited from family.

Even the backsides of the postcards are beautiful. Plus, they offer so much historic information. Dates, cities and if you are lucky enough – family names and history.

What to use to cover a matchbox

  • Wrapping paper
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Newspaper
  • Your own design
  • Fabric

Choose your paper medium. Truly, anything is perfect. I chose vintage postcards because they are my favorite. Consider going to Graphics Fairy and choosing any of her free Christmas postcards.

How to make Christmas matchbox covers

Aren’t this adorable? They will make for a perfect gift, especially when paired with a holiday candle.

My new favorite Christmas candle is by Antique Candle Co. The scent is Tree Farm. Trust me when I say that my entire house smells more fragrant than a Christmas pine tree! I love it.

They would also be great gifted with a bundle of kindling.

I hope that you like this thrifty gift idea. You just can’t go wrong with a pretty candle and matches.

Don’t forget to Pin this to your favorite Pinterest Board!
