Happy Junkin New Year 2014!

I did something different in my gold frame this year. Four ironstone plates hung with command strips, and written with dry erase marker.  And just this morning I had the idea of changing the NOEL to 2014!

Junkin Christmas 2013

First, I have these little mold stars, maybe used for cakes or jello molds.
Now I transformed them into Christmas tree ornaments.
 I added burlap for the background, then added some found objects! and a little "snow".

 Keys, bells, earings, and buttons were some of the things I added!
Ribbon and #25!

White earing that looks like a snowflake!

I had a bunch of these old tree lights, which might work bur they use too much energy, so I carefully bundled them and wrapped the cord around the wires, and added a wool scarf bow. (cut in half lengthwise)

This vintage tree holder makes a unique wine chiller,
 just add ice then your favorite bottle of wine!

Have yourself a Junkin Kind of Christmas!
