I have already posted the zinc jar lids here. They will be the first repurposed tree decorations.
Repurposed Christmas Tree Ornaments #1 - Zinc Jar Lids
Today's project will be made from repurposed silverplate teaspoons. As you can see I have drilled holes in the handle tops, and in the points of the spoons. I have also cut sheet music ovals that fit in the spoons.
I used Mod Podge on my finger to put glue on the top and bottom of the sheet music cut outs, and centered them on the spoons. Try to carefully work out any ripples in the paper.
Next I put a small jingle bell on a jewelry ring to attach to the bottom holes on the spoons.
Here are my teaspoons hanging in an outdoor evergreen tree. (They of course will be on my indoor Christmas tree but it is not up yet!)
Spoons are easy to find, inexpensive, and these were easy to make. I'm going with "less is more", and keeping them simple.
