Thrifted Recipe Card Stand Re-purposed As Christmas Decor

A couple years ago I found this dated little recipe card stand/holder.

This little stand was perfect for a makeover!

Ugly Thrift Shop Christmas Tree Upcycle

I found this skinny wooden Christmas tree at the thrift shop last week.  

I think it was originally a primitive style, craft sale tree.

But at some point the wooden tree was decorated with paper stickers and fake gifts were glued on the base.

Thrift Shop Vintage Child's Metal Folding Chair Christmas Upcycle

I found this little child's vintage metal folding chair at the thrift shop this week.  

It's not the original paint job.  It's been spray painted red, but the spray paint has some dings and chips and scratches and rust, so it seems vintage.

Thrift Shop Repurposed Cutting Board Christmas Decor

I found a small cutting board at the thrift shop this week for $1.

As you probably know, I love to repurpose and upcycle cutting boards!

Minnesota Floor Puzzle Piece Re-Purposed As A Christmas Tree Ornament

This is a piece from a United States Floor Puzzle I found at a local thrift shop.

It's not wood.  It's pressed paper, but since it's a floor puzzle piece, it's a nice size for an ornament.

A YOU CUT Tree Farm Christmas Covered Patio

You Cut Tree Farm Sign
Back in October, I made this You Cut Tree Farm Sign with a stencil from *Old Sign Stencils and a wooden frame with star cut out that I purchased at a flea market for $1.

The theme for my rustic covered patio Christmas decor this year is a YOU CUT Tree Farm.  

Stenciling on an Old Window Screen with Old Sign Stencils

I recently purchased this old window screen painted dark green for $5.  

It has some damage to the screen, but I think that may add to the charm of my project.

A Minnesota Buffalo Check Christmas Vignette

A Minnesota Buffalo Check Christmas Vignette
I started Christmas decorating today using some of my recent projects in the kitchen!

My new vignette includes projects with Minnesota and Buffalo Check stencils!

Thrift Shop Wooden Salad Plates Repurposed As Christmas/Winter Decor

I have actually been hanging on to these wooden salad plates from the thrift shop since early 2017.  I have 4 of them, and they are marked "Made in Japan". 

Today I gave them a Christmas/Winter makeover!

Thrift Shop Spice Rack Repurposed As Christmas Decor Shelf

This vintage wooden wall spice rack was one of my Fall Junk Finds.

At least I think it's a spice rack.  It's hinged with a lip to hold spice jars or maybe a recipe book.  Anyway, I purchased it for 75 cents at a thrift shop.
