Making Homemade Christmas Trees Using Vintage Kitchen Funnels, Sieves, Rolling Pins
I'll start off by saying that my experience in making homemade Christmas trees ended back in grade school when my pal Sharon and I created a giant custom coloring book to take to children in the hospital. However after seeing this wonderful blog post on making "Alternative Christmas Trees" on the popular website Organized Clutter I'm feeling somewhat creative.
Funky Funnels and More
It's easy to get inspired with holiday creativity when you poke around the Organized Clutter website. As a collector of kitchen collectibles, I was delighted to see these funky Christmas trees made from vintage household kitchen items such as funnels, sieves,rolling pins etc.
Christmas Tree for the holidays.
Where to Find Vintage Kitchenwares
You can find these household kitchenwares at Flea Markets, Thrift stores, Yard sales, Antique Shops.
You might want to start collecting during the summer months when there are a lot of outdoor sales and you can generally find these kitchen collectibles at more reasonable prices. If you are reading this article close to the holidays, you may need to not only romp around your favorite haunts but also look online.
