Re-Purposed Vintage Tray Christmas Art on Barn Wood

I purchased this old tray last fall.  An idea came to me to cut a tree shape out of the center of it with tin snips.

I found this Christmas tree shape HERE.  (I really should be finishing and posting my fall projects but I couldn't wait to make this Christmas one after I got the bright idea!)

Then I traced the tree pattern onto the tray with a washable marker.

Three old barn wood boards were attached together to make a plaque with two horizontal boards.  The size of the plaque is the same as the tray size.

I nailed the cutout onto the plaque, and a rustic star was cut out of a scrap of aluminum.

The tree plaque has a rustic appearance with the addition of the barn wood and the use of nails instead of glue to attach the cutout.

The project was really pretty easy, and any Christmas tray would work.  I hope you like it!

One Rustic Fall Vignette Two Ways - Take Your Pick!

Fall Barn Wood/Ladle Candlerholder
Remember my  barn wood and vintage ladle re-purposed fall candle holder post from August?  While decorating my covered patio, I ended up with a small vignette dilemma.

Raffia in Fall Decor

I seem to tie or tuck raffia into almost all of my fall vignettes.  It reminds me of straw, and I love the way the wind blows it back and forth outdoors.  Here are examples of my fall raffia ideas.

I tied some raffia on my funnel Jack o'Lantern here.

Odds & Ends: Easy Fall Sign & Nail Polish Holder

I have two easy projects to share today.

Shovel Handle Display Tray
After completing this Shovel Handle Display Tray, I had the shovel head left over.

Rusty Shovel Garden Signs
Why not make another rusty shovel sign like these?

So I did!  This is the chalk lettering that I traced onto the shovel head back.
