A "Re-Purposed" Christmas Tree - Crystal Salt & Pepper Shakers

In case you haven't been following along here, I have challenged myself to decorate my Christmas tree with all re-purposed items this year.

To bring you up to speed, you have missed...

Re-purposed Christmas Ornaments:
1.  Zinc Jar Lids
2.  Teaspoons
3.   Ice Cream Scoop

Today, Christmas tree ornament number four in my challenge is a re-purposed set of crystal salt and pepper shakers with silver plate covers and tray.  I have had this little set for sale in a consignment shop for over a year.  No takers.

I purchased these crystal prisms for $5 at Menard's.

I only needed one prism for this project so the cost of this project is $4.  A hole was drilled in each end of the tray.

I removed the gold metal clips and added silver colored jewelry rings.

 The I glued the crystal salt and pepper shakers by their sides to the tray with E6000, and let it dry overnight.  A ribbon was threaded through the top hole.

  4. I can also see the shakers hanging alone and the tray with a crystal hanging on it without the shakers! Lots of ideas with those 3 pieces!
