Twig Tree
Rusty bells, old keys and twine...
I made these ornaments out of rusty baling wire and old clothes pins.

Twig Tree

Some of the found items I used to decorate a twig tree at our farm include ornaments I made out of old wooden clothespins, wrapped with rusty baling wire; a garland of old skeleton keys strung on baling wire, rusty bells hung on twine, and various makedo cloth ornaments.

I don't have a lot of space in the living room at the farmhouse, so a twig tree (being very narrow) seemed the best answer, and the primitive style went with the 'theme' of the house well enough. I had to pull the decorations together with what I had on hand. Posted: 1:54 pm on January 9th
