Repurposed Faucet Handles, Hinges and Door Knobs for Christmas

 Hello my friends !


True confession- I love bottle brush trees !

Here are a few that I have found over the years.

I rarely pass them by especially single trees.



I needed to remove the wood base.

Just a little twist is all you need.



I save them for another time.



The trees easily stand in the faucet handles.

I used the back side.





I had this idea in my head because I thought the handles

looked just like my vintage Victorian tree stand.

What do you think?




Same idea with old door knobs.







To make a hinge tree-

I opened it to stand pointing up.

I used a piece of bailing wire starting at the base

and wrapping around to the top

where I formed a star.



I only found a single hinge, but I will be on the lookout

for another.



Next week I will probably share a mini Christmas tour!

Thank you for stopping by, I know you are busy!!!
