Christmas Vignettes from Great Junk


Creating Christmas Vignettes with junk/stuff around the house. First vignette (above) is a mixture of vintage four-sided graters on an EP Copper Silver Plate platter, battery candles that flicker (who knew!), three gold painted pine cones, a few great old books and my poinsettia. Love the warm ambience.



Next Junk Christmas Vignette - Start with some junk finds, mix with recycled faux greenery, bits and pieces of vintage decorations, old strings of Christmas lights, some imagination and put it all together in an old red painted carpenters tool box. I hung my Christmas wreath above.

Next vignette is a vintage wash plunger sans wooden post mixed with some pretty, somewhat vintage, broken jewelry and an old Christmas corsage with a very worn red and rusted tool box tin tray in the background.




The cookie cutter tree decorations are inspired by Carlene of Organized Clutter. I dug out my collection of red handled very vintage cookie cutters, hung them with vintage red Rick Rack. Delightful.




Iron Railroad spikes used for a flower frog (support) in little red wooden box + prickly holly.


I think this post could go on and on mixing junk and Christmas. It has been fun and I love joining in with others who are creating Christmas Junk.

  2. I LOVE these. I bet the graters look so cool lit up. So many holes of different sizes for the light to shine through. I bet they throw out some great patterns on the walls, etc. I wish I had you creativity! You can bring an idea to life! It is like those vintage things are brought back for a new and second (and third and fourth life!) Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hi Joy ... all your vignettes with junk are very interesting. I may be using a red tray out of an old tool box for some Christmas decorating so yours inspires me. Love the one with the cheese graters. One year (long before blogging) ... I painted five cheese graters red ... put candles inside ... tied a pretty ribbon on them ... staged a pretty table on the front porch just outside our dining room window with fresh Pyracantha berry limbs ... the birds came ... pooped all over the table ... got drunk on the fermented berries and destroyed my vignette. So much for that.
    Have fun.
