Bed Spring ChristmasTrees
I made 3 Trees, each slightly different
- 3 Rusty Old Bed Springs (from an old bed)
- 3 Rusty Old Small Springs (they were from the Bed also)
- 3 Old Clay Pots, aged even more with candle wax and paint
- Floral Foam (from the Dollar Tree)
- White Puff Paint (for the snow)
- Spanish Moss (from the Dollar Tree)
- Moss, (from the Dollar Tree)
- Red Berries (from my Yard)
- 3 Sticks (from the Yard)
- Old Book Pages
- Clear Glitter
- Spray Adhesive
- Hot Glue
- 1 sheet of Cardstock
- Brown Stamp Pad
Cheap, but messy and time consuming
Double 3D Stars:
I used my Cricut to cut 2 sizes of stars out of cardstock, I cut 6 Large, and 3 small. (The actual book pages were to brittle to run through the Cricut) I then traced the stars on the pages and cut them out by hand and glued them on the cardstock stars.
I made mine double, just make a single sided 3D Star and attached to the front of the bigger ones.
I used the these instructions to make the Stars 3 D, found the instructions via Pinterest, Just like these from:
I further aged the book pages using brown stamping ink around the edges, added glitter and puff paint, "snow".
I attached them to the tree top with the small springs and a hot glue gun.
I stuck a stick into the foam in a clay pot, and glued the top of a Spring to the top of the stick, and added some "stick" braces here and there to hold it straight.
I added snow to 2 trees by appling puff paint and using a heat gun to activate (puff) the paint. Then added red berries to all 3, sprayed the tress with spray Adhesive and just sort of "patted" the moss around. I covered the foam in the pot with moss also and added a snow around the bottom.
Hot glue a little Jute bow and we have a Spring Tree!
Aged Terra Cotta Pots:
You can use new or old clay pots, just randomly rub a candle over the surface, then paint (I used white paint). Take a clean dry cloth and wipe the paint off, some of the paint will remain giving it that wonderful aged look.
