Peace of Junk

It may be the biggest shopping season of the year, but the junk material repurposed into these Christmas vignettes didn’t cost a cent.

 

The salvaged wood that the Peace sign is made from was the bannister of the outside of a commercial building that was demolished.

The star at the top of the sign is made from a collection of antique schoolroom rulers: a couple of which I’ve had since childhood.

The candle stand is a vintage lawn sprinkler that I rescued from the top of a garbage pile at a local residential demolition site.

The greenery and candle holder is an antique colander that I have had for years but stopped cooking with because it was getting chipped.

The lantern was a garden lantern, but I rescued it from a neighbour’s curb.

A bundle of wire sitting in my storage area for ages (origin unknown) inspired this simple wreath.

I just wrapped a scrap of burlap around the light socket, strung some pine cones into a wreath with lightweight wire and dropped it over the burlap, then hot glued the bottom of a red candle to hold it in place.

The wreath is simply some greenery and dried rosehips from the garden tied to a coil of rusty wire.

Simple but Christmassy
