O Christmas Tree…
Last year I had this idea. I wanted to decorate my Christmas tree with old clock faces. I’m not sure why but I really like them. I like their various shapes and sizes, their weathered backgrounds. Plus, they’re circles. How can you not like circles?
The problem was that I didn’t have any. So here and there throughout the year I’ve picked up a few, and they’re now hanging on my tree.
I like the overall look quite a bit. I’ll be watching for more in coming months so I’ll have a larger collection next December. A simple piece of twine through the center hole in each of them was all I used for hanging.
My collection of bird ornaments were used to fill in the gaps, along with our monogram ornaments. I keep these in my studio year round so we can use them for other things.
My husband has jokingly dubbed it the “time flies” tree.
I just smile. I like the clocks anyway.
What do you think?
what a great idea. Love the clocks!
We saw a bunch of trees like that at the festival of trees. It’s a neat idea. I don’t think Jake would ever go for it, but it is fun to make the tree different.
That’s such a neat idea!
I like the clock faces! I found some in the schoolteacher’s recycle store locally….I guess teachers used them to teach time before digital readings! Thanks for sharing! Lynda
I love your tree! I decorated my stairway with clock faces that I printed out! I’m always on the search for real ones! Have a great Christmas! ~Marcy
