Where Can We Put These Once We Finished Building Them?
You can place these on a mantle, a dining table, a coffee table, really anywhere you like! While these are festive for the holidays, they don’t have to come down with the rest of the decorations right after Christmas! Many people keep these up for decoration for the entirety of the winter. PLUS, they’re a keepsake that you can use year after year.
