Living Amazing in 2012 with Goodwill

Crafts for Vacation Souvenirs

Posted by Holly Hirsch on Aug 3, 2012 10:20:00 AM

After you get back from your summer vacation, don't let the memories fade by tossing your souvenirs aside. When we find unique ways to display our great finds, they can often become topics of discussion when company is over, and also remind us of the fun we had. Here our some of our favorite ways to display our souvenirs, with the help of Goodwill!

jarGoodie Jar

Mason jars are one of the more affordable ways to store and display items. Coming back from the beach? Fill the bottom of your mason jar with some sand, and lay sea shells you found along the way on top. Or, bring home pine cones and a postcard from your camping trip to display in the jar. Whatever items you choose to place in your mason jar, be sure to place the jar on a mantle or bookshelf for guests to enjoy!

Framed maps have always been trendy. What better maps to frame than those from your last vacation spot? Look to Goodwill for inexpensive frames; any size under 8x10 will do, as most road maps open to a large size. Wrap your map tightly around the glass and secure with tape before sliding back into the frame. Choose frames with different sizes, and choose multiple locations on your map to create a unique wall display!

One of the best things about tourist shops is the wide array of t-shirts they have available! T-shirts are a simple, inexpensive way to remember all the places you visited during your vacation - but we love the idea of displaying your fun-filled trips all in one place! T-shirt blankets are a fun way to do this. You'll find instructions for making your blanket at Wiki How.
