I have been having a ball decorating for the holidays and I challenged myself to come up with some ideas for a salvage Christmas.
Vintage glass balls are stunning – their colors are subtle – the patina speaks of Christmas past. And we have been getting a lot of battery jars in lately. Battery jars are simply a straight sided round or square glass jar which was used to house a conductive solution of either acid or copper sulfate. I love the industrial glass and bright pops of color.
Name tags and place settings get a bit of vintage charm when attached to a beautiful old skeleton key.
Take it outside! I strung together large crystal cabinet knobs and festooned our industrial tree.
The tree was made by prisoners in the 1950′s. Quite a craft project! The strings twist in the wind and sparkle in the sun.
We are hoping we will get freezing rain – how amazing would that look?
