Eclectic Framed Christmas Tree

I save things…
a lot of things…

in hopes that I will use them for something spectacular!

Furniture knobs and pulls

Sometimes my bright ideas don’t come into full fruition, so at times it may seem like saving a little bit too much!  
I have learned that I don’t look like so much of a hoarder if I just save them in a pretty glass jar display, then they look more like decor instead of a drawer full of junk!
at least that’s what I have convinced myself!
But somehow I just keep looking past the junk and always envision potential – something like this…
It was so easy to make, I just played around with the shapes a bit until I came up with a design that I liked.  I then glued the heavier pieces with Gorilla Glue super glue gel right onto the framed glass and the remaining pieces with a hot glue gun! 
I turned out gorgeous, in my opinion! 
Since I found most of the hardware on discarded trash -Curb Alert! furniture and old broaches/jewelry pieces from Goodwill, I consider it a true Trash to Treasure! 
Something I will treasure for a very long time!

    A lovely Christmas tree! Keep on saving things.
    Need to find me some big jars to create "artistic displays"!

    Very cool! I enjoyed watching it take formation. I bet that would sell for quite a bit on ebay or etsy.
