Joining the Party at Funky Junk with Donna...this week the party theme is handmade ornaments...
These photos were taken at the District Wide Tea... Suzette or "The Five Sisters", as we are known, decorated.
Josh did a lot of the work on these ornaments, but they were my idea, lol, and I did strip down the keys, lay out the words, and tie the ribbons! What can I say, "The Five Sisters" have good elves.
They are made from keyboard keys...we started making these about 3 Christmases ago...
We've spelled out lots of things...
We did a green one that said "Grinch" and a black one that spelled "Coal"
Also, special orders with folks names...I thought it would be cute to put some computer language on some, too.
As much as I love rust and really old junk...
I also like repurposing the new plastic junk...a fun way to keep them out of land fills, hmm?
And it works out especially well, when you can marry the two, as we did here with the rusty bed spring trees. My sister, Beverly, made these...we all dabble in the springs, seems I never have time to post it all though.
Here is another tree...spot the red vintage truck to the right, love it!
Notice all our Santa Hat Chair covers...
they were so fun!
And here is a wreath I made from bed springs, and decorated it with this sweet bird and paper tree.
Bed Springs are a blast to work with, Because it's so easy to come up with things to do with them,
but, I do tend to look like I have been in a cat fight, when I am through!
I adore using old jewelry like this pearl ear bauble, with the rust,
Seems I always add some paper flowers and buttons...
And of course, more of our chains!
