Upcycled Vintage Faucets Christmas Tree
Trash to Treasure: Water Faucet Covers to Christmas Tree
When a friend gave me on old faucet handle, I knew I wanted to find more. Little did I know these handles are now plastic and the old metals ones aren’t that easy to find. But, when I visited Can-It Recycling, I found some old metal faucet covers in a trash can! (They were free!) I’ve looked at them for days before deciding to make them into a mini Christmas tree for our mantel.
Here’s the parts I had to work with…
After spraying all the pieces green, it was simply a matter of threading them onto the old red note holder I already had from my desk. I used a Christmas greenery base I found at a Goodwill Store for 25 cents to start the process.
I used some of the bolts as spacers and to cover the red base of the note holder as I stacked the metal faucets.
I was surprised to find one more male pine cone from my pine cone tree project. I sprayed it green and added it to the top.
The mini Christmas tree is a perfect size for the mantel. No one but me, well, now all of you, knows that this little tree only cost 25 cents! And, I doubt, unless I mention it, no one would think it was made from old metal faucet covers!
