Hose Nozzle and Other Alternative Christmas Trees

December 01, 2013
I recently found 3 older brass hose nozzles.  All three at once.  An instant collection.

They are not exactly shaped like a Christmas tree but I think you get the idea.  I stained a small square of wood and pounded in three large nails.  The hose nozzles balance on the nails.  You could stick a little piece of fun tack or double sided tape to make them more stable if they are wiggly.  Then I wrapped one nozzle with jute and another with wire and bells.  All three have flat metal stars stuck into the nozzle tip hole.

Here another easy alternative Christmas tree.  A vintage berry sieve on top of an old spool.  I have decorated it with vintage ornaments and a star.
