Have a Holly Junky Christmas! (Upcycled Wreath)

♪ Have a holly, junky Christmas… It’s the best time of the year! ♪

We haven’t been doing a lot of decorating at home this year. Our home has kinda become the shop, ha ha! We kinda live there!! So, we have put most of our energy into making the shop a place of inspiration for the holidays! I just love sharing ideas with customers who stop by. We chat. We create. We inspire each other. I spend most of my days building things or making stuff… even if that means having all my mess sprawled across the truck counter!

A couple days ago, I shared this picture on Instagram & Facebook… my supplies for the day!

Junk Pile for Christmas Upcycles #RustedRoots

So I thought it was only fair to show you some of what I made with it!! I knew from the start my plans for the this old wheel. I’m not sure what it came off of, but I found it in the old basement we dug through on Halloween, remember?? So, I added a little snowy boxwood and a red bow and tadaaaa…

Now my mission for 2015 is to stock up on wheels, big wheels, little wheels, rusty wheel, any wheels!! Because seriously, how cute is that??

Then there were these two old pieces of wooden architecture. Don’t know what these are either, but the shape was just delightful!

Same story here… some greenery, berries, and a bow… and tadaaaa… I think these would be beautiful hanging above a fireplace. Maybe on either side of a large mirror… just stunning!!

I tell ya, if you want to whip up some Christmas junk for yourself. Watch your local craft store for Christmas sales. I found a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase at Michaels… including sale items. Their Christmas greenery was already 50% off so I snagged it for 70% off… which is great because the selection is still great right now!! So snag ya some ribbon and greenery and have a Holly Junky Christmas!!
