Vintage Clothespin Bag Christmas “Wreath”

If you read through my recent round-up post on upcycled Christmas wreaths, then you may have noticed that I mentioned a new non-wreath wreath that I was working on. And, well…today’s the day I share it with you! A few months back, I found this vintage clothespin bag at a local thrift store.

Christmas Merry-go-Round: Vintage Postcard Carousel

Christmas Merry-go-Round: Vintage Postcard Carousel

Back in January of this year, I was thrifting at my local Habitat ReStore and spotted a spinning photo frame that was in excellent condition.

Vintage Textile Mill Bobbins Repurposed as Christmas Ornaments

Long before we moved to Greenville, it was a textile town. So, it’s no surprise that the relics of that not-so-distant past are found in every antique shop in town- and in every shop within a 200-mile radius. Spools, bobbins, spindles…in any shape and size you can imagine. I’ve been on a brainstorming quest to come up with craft ideas for these guys, and I think I finally found a new favorite!Read more ›
