3 Ways To Turn Mementos Into Decor
Display pieces that are not only stylish but meaningful, too!
We are all guilty of keeping mementos. As much as we can, we try to hold on to bits and pieces from significant events in our lives because they allow us to take a trip down memory lane.
However, if you're not careful, these harmless souvenirs can accumulate fast. Those who love traveling, exploring flea markets and gift shops, keeping every stub and sticker may end up with tons of clutter that can turn into a bigger problem.
If you're also experiencing the same dilemma of mementos taking up storage space, we've rounded up three ideas that will give you the perfect excuse to turn your home into a real-life scrapbook:

Look back on your wedding day by choosing to replant some of the components of your bouquet. Consider creating a terrarium and other captivating succulent arrangements that you can enclose in glass domes (as seen in photo). Your finished projects can be displayed around the home.

Instead of hiding everything in a box that you will keep inside your closet, think of ways on how you can showcase your favorite things. How about creating memory boxes? You can use ordinary picture frames and create collages using train tickets and museum passes that you've collected while abroad.
RL Tip: If you've been to different countries, try to make one for every place and build your own travel gallery at home!

For things that you don't want to pass on because of sentimental value, such as newborn clothes, you can consider having them framed. Make it more memorable by scribbling a note or adding a small plate that tells the story of the article of clothing that you chose to display.
