Salvaged Wood & Jewelry Christmas Tree Ornaments

Brooch & Wood Ornament by
I recently pinned and was inspired by this salvaged brooch and wood ornament  by

I remembered that I had a somewhat dated, framed jewelry tree on blue velvet from my neighbors, so I pulled it out of the garage.

Re-Purposed Drawer Pull Christmas Ornament

This is a metal drawer pull I got from my Junkin' Friend Jodi, probably for free!  
I started the ornament re-purpose by pulling back the ring on the drawer pull and actually bending it just a bit so it would hang straight up and down.

From Kitsch to Rustic in the Laundry Room

Kitschy Laundry Room Decor
When I last shared the laundry room on my blog, it had yellow walls, and in addition to vintage washboards and irons, the standard laundry room fare, I displayed vintage, kitschy collectibles like cookie jars, salt & pepper shakers, etc.  That post is here.  
My laundry room is located right next to my kitchen, and seen daily by family and visitors.

Simple Rustic Snowflake Themed Christmas Tree

This year I have cut back my Christmas decorating budget to almost nothing by using what I already have, and using re-purposed and up-cycled items.  I have a new roof to put on in the spring, and will be putting in hardwood floors.  Excited for the floors, but the roof is a necessity! 

And this simple snowflake vignette I put together in the kitchen, got me on a snowflake theme.

I purchased a Sandra Lee snowflake ornament from Kmart for $4.99.

Then removed the greenery with a blow dryer.

I painted the wooden ornament with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and then distressed it.  I then glued a metal button in the center.  This snowflake became my treetop.

I also re-used my mini clipboard ornaments I made last year.

This year the clipboards hold vintage snowflake images from the Graphics Fairy.

I also re-used my zinc jar lid snowflake ornaments from last year.

 I also added snowflake doily ornaments I've had forever and a few Christmas balls.

It's not a beautiful little tree, but the decorations work well with my rustic mantel decor.
