DIY Ornament Tree

Check out this creative use for old Christmas
 ornaments on Pinterest.   Crate & Barrel Knock-off

I tried my own version of this craft.
Some items used are reclaimed cedar wood,
Shiny Brite ornaments, embossed tin
 & salvaged wire.

How great would this be for an apartment
that lacked room for a full sized tree?

The tones of these glass balls are 
gold, silver & green.  It's a neutral look.

Here is an example of using whatever"junk" you have!
This spool was rescued from the woods,
as was the old embossed tin building edging.

So, which TREE do you like better???

Thanks for stopping by!

I had a large stockpile of wood spindles. 
Many were from a friend that was moving.

 So, one day I painted all
kinds of them.  When lightly sanded
and paired up with weathered wood,
they look pretty cute.

The copper one sold first.
This would make a great candy dish.
Copper works great for fall.

I love the plain wooden ones.
They look festive with a
pumpkin on top.
