Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, How Rusted Are Thy Branches!


I have a junk Christmas tree this year! Yeah!
And YES, it's a rusted piece of junk!
Not sure what in the heck this thing is,
but it has 5 rusted circles on it.
I think it's cool.


This is what it looked like when I found it at my grandfathers place.
Does anyone have any ideas?
It had a wooden piece in the center.
Craig took out the wood,
added an adjustable iron rod,
a base, and a star!
And there you have it,
my new old junk Christmas tree!
Sorry these pictures are so dark,
it has been raining all day.
I'll take some better pictures later!


And wouldn't you know it,
I just happened to have some lights,
still in the package,
that have brown wire! Yeah!
I don't know if I'm gonna put any decorations on it,
or just leave it plain!
What do you think I should do?


I had to show you this cute little bench Craig made.
Took it in the shop on Thursday and sold it on Saturday!

The tree is great as is, but you could always add some vintage crystals as icicles and a few silver Shiny Brights for bling. I love the bench!

SueBee said...

I have no clue what it is but I love what you did! I would either leave it like it is or put vintage ornaments on it.
And that bench is so adorable! I want a Craig too!!!

Sue said...

Is there anything Craig can't do ;0) I love the Christmas tree exactly the way you have it now! Looks great!

Take care, Sue

I believe your tree may be some kind of a homemade trellis for growing plants. It looks like a tomato stake to me.
