Unique Christmas Ornaments From Industrial Items

Spread the love

This year, our family is going to be celebrating Christmas at our cabin. Instead of bringing up the usual Christmas decorations from home, we are going to decorate a small tree with all new unique Christmas ornaments. Most of what I put on the tree will be rustic but I also wanted them to be unique.

I started looking for vintage items, that I have collected, which might be repurposed into a rustic Christmas ornament. It didn’t take long before I hit the jackpot! I found a box of vintage silver net floats that I had been saving for ……something!

All I did was tie some jute twine around the tops, which fit nice and snug into one of the grooves, and I now have about ten fun rustic ornaments…so far…for our tree!

While I was in the Christmas spirit, I also decided to whip up a garland using some of my larger vintage buttons and a section of jute twine.

I love re-using vintage or industrial items for decorating projects and this got me wondering about what other kinds of unique Christmas ornaments might be floating around.  I did a search and this is what I found:

I don’t know about you, but I love silver and gold and…….rust!  This makes a fun ornament, especially if you can find stencils of letters to match your family names.

This snowman is so cute!  I think I will have to clean out my husband’s junk drawer and see what kinds of odds and ends I can find.

I hope you have been inspired!

I'm addicted to crafting and decorating my downtown city loft and up north rustic cabin.
