Over the last weeks I pinned a lot of trees to my Christmas board, which are made from junk pieces, found objects, scrap wood etc. These pins inspired me to create my own junk tree versions. In my collection of vintage books I found several pretty spines in different sizes that were partly torn or ripped off. I cut them off and glued them onto a background that dear hubby had hammered from pallet wood together for me.
Usually I don’t like gold very much but I adore these beautiful embossed spines.
For the second wall hanging I adhered vintage book pages to a piece of wood and added a light, uneven coat of gesso. The tree is made from rusty parts of an electric motor and an old hinge.
This is my little helper Barney, who finds room in the smallest baskets :-).
Have a wonderful week and a great time creating and decorating for Christmas. I’ll be back soon with some more recycled trees.
