How do I preserve old cardboard Christmas house decorations?
Q. Dear Donia,
A. Dear Deborah,
What wonderful little decorations to have. They must look so festive under the tree.
The best thing you can do with your cardboard houses it to handle them carefully, pack them gently when they are not on view, and nothing else. A spray or other form of coating will not help preserve the color or hold the houses together. Of course, you will also want to be sure they don't get wet if they are displayed under a real tree. Best, Donia
