How to Use a Rusty Hinge to Make a Tree

 Today I'm reposting one of Homeroad's first 2011 Christmas projects, the photos were taken with old technology but the hinge tree is still a great idea!

Every year around this time it seems that everywhere I look I see Christmas Trees. Every triangle shape is a potential tree!


This rusty hinge was no exception.


I stood it up, wired on some copper wire and beads then added a star.

I added Scrabble letters attached to magnets as the ornaments.

This cute little snowman went perfect with the tree!

I knew I thought it looked like a Christmas Tree!


Attach the hinge to a board and you've got a cute little shelf display for pennies!
