Vintage Santa Mug Art in the Kitchen

I’m sharing an easy and inexpensive way to create art for your home, for any season, holiday or occasion. I searched and searched for art to display with my Santa mug collection but could not find anything I liked. I created gift bag framed art that is perfect for my Christmas kitchen. I’m also sharing gift wrap art ideas including the cutest vintage Christmas inspired wrapping paper.

I have a thing for vintage (and new) Santa mugs so when I spotted this Santa & Mrs. Claus mug gift bag I knew it was fated to come home with me.

It pairs perfectly with my collection and is just the right blend of vintage and whimsical.

The best thing about using gift bags or gift wrap as art is that you are pretty much guaranteed to be the only one you know who has it hanging in their house.
