Rusty Springs, my new favorite decorating prop for Christmas! Grab yourself some rusty springs and see what I mean! ...

This is a repost from several years ago when I came across some gorgeous rusty springs and put them to use at Christmas time. 


I'll admit climbing into that dumpster was not the smartest thing I've ever done, but I healed!

These crazy rusty springs made my Christmas decorations look even better!


You can use E6000 to glue your ornaments to the top of the springs or just set them on top.

Even a simple painted pinecone looks better!


Sprinkle the pinecone with a dusting of fine white glitter and you've got a snow covered treasure for next to nothing!

This Santa with the rounded bottom that never really stood up straight is so much happier now!

And how about that St. Nicholas that couldn't stand on his own at all?


The rusty springs not only look great but solve a lot of problems! 😂


See all the projects I've made using rusty springs in my home decor.

  1. Susan that is so clever. We inherited a rusty spring with a bell tied to it on our back door when we moved and I must say it's the cutest antique I ever did see. Plus it dings every time someone comes in the door! Love your stands, have a great Christmas.

  2. I never run across springs. I will have to check ebay. It's a great idea.

  3. Shared this on Google+ and I will surely have to use it. I removed several old springs from an old chair I reupholstered last week and hubby almost threw them away [Yikes] but I rescued them!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!

    1. Hi Patti-Ann... I got mine from ebay (or if you have an old chair that has springs you could pull it apart and use them) Happy Holidays!
