Santa's Vintage Mail Bags are Packed!

Pin It

Santa can't go wrong delivering gifts with these vintage U.S. mail bags and in his new sparkly duds! I met up with Santa last summer at a garage sale. Someone was passing up their past DIY effort for $1.


 I couldn't resist offering to give Santa a fashion makeover. With a fresh coat of white paint and some sparkly additions...


Santa went from red and tired to snow white and fabulous!


We added the perfect vintage accessories and he's ready for his Christmas Eve travels!


He's truly ready to shine this year! He's so bright, he might not even need Rudolph to guide the sleigh!



Word is that he's not even using a sleigh this year. Seriously! According to Junkologie, Santa's going for a more vintage industrial approach, and this is "How Junkin' Santa Delivers Gifts."


When Santa stops at your house, tell him I said hi!
