Use outgrown Christmas outfits as holiday home decoration

Sara’s come up with a brilliant way to remember (tiny) Christmases past:

Since my daughter was due in early December, we got so many adorable "My First Christmas" outfits. She was able to wear some of them only once, and I just couldn’t bear to get rid of them! So I saved them and now get them out as Christmas decorations every year. I hang them with clothes pins on a long red ribbon on the wall, but they would also be really cute hung on a mantle. My daughter loves seeing how little they are and being told they were hers!

    Very cute idea. The only reuse for those cute things that I’d thought of was to reuse as doll clothes, but this is pretty clever!

    I put some baby shoes on our xmas tree this year, tied up with red ribbons. Turned out pretty cute I think, though the kids are a little bewildered.
