I was really tempted to sneak in another little project this week, but decided that it was time to clean off my workbench for the year and store away my ideas until after the holidays. Instead of making something new, I rounded up ten of the Chirstmas trees I've shared here over the last couple of years.
I hope you enjoy them the second time around.
Vintage Lace Christmas Tree, December 2013. I covered the tomato cage base with muslin, wrapped it with pieces of vintage lace, then added a battery operated tea light under the tree for a warm soft glow.
Tape Measure Trees and More, November 2013. I had quite a stash of old tape measures and yardsticks, so I combined the two and came up with these funky hanging Christmas trees. For extra sparkle, I used a vintage rhinestone clip-on earring as a tree topper.
Vintage Sheet Music Christmas Tree, July 2013. This was a first for me...I actually completed a Christmas project in July for the Christmas in July Link Party I hosted with Knick of Time and Bliss Ranch. I rolled up copies of vintage sheet music, then glued them to the frame I made from a cabinet door and strips of molding.
A Touch of Sparkle, December 2011. I made this tree several years ago and it still finds a special place in our home every Christmas.
Junky Lamp Parts Christmas Trees from a few weeks ago. Two whimsical trees made from old lamp parts.
|Framed Button Christmas Tree from last week's post. A quick and easy project made from vintage mother of pearl buttons, a vintage frame, and sheet metal.|
Christmas and New Year Tape Measure Trees, December 2013. The ingredients: metal tape measure pieces, Victorian photo album pages, scrap wood, and some rusty old hinges.
I wish I could round up all the other Christmas trees I've created over the past few years. Do you take pictures of everything you make? I need to start doing that even if it's just a quick picture with my phone. So many tree ideas jumping around in my head, but they're just going to have to wait until next year.
I'd love for you to stay connected with My Salvaged Treasures. I'm just one click away.
