1. DIY Christmas Tree

This DIY Christmas tree idea using reclaimed hardware came to me in the middle of the night. I have a ton of reclaimed hardware so why not make a funky Christmas tree. The tree was fun to put together. It did take a bit of time to find just the right sizes and types of hardware in my junk stash to make the tree. Putting it together was the easy part.

I love the glittery sparkle of little icicles as the sun hits them and these icicle pinecones will give you a similar effect.  Other than drying time, they only take a few minutes to make and you can easily make up a big batch at one time.  They’re perfect to add into your Christmas decor – use them in centerpieces, on trees, or on any snowy vignette that you create.  They’re especially pretty if they’re used with Christmas lights.
