Found Object Christmas Tree

I love the idea of this found object Christmas tree!
Imagine taking bits and pieces of things you have collected over the 
years, mementos or other small objects that hold meaning to you, and 
arranging them into a holiday assemblage...

Wall assemblages are unique works of art! 
What makes them  so special is the personal connection that 
the creator has with each item or component. I think this idea would 
be great displayed year-round but in a different, (non-holiday) shape, 
such as a big star. 

I'm not sure how the tree in these photos was created- it looks as if each

item is adhered directly onto the wooden wall or door. Wouldn't this be neat 
created on an old salvaged door? You could also use plywood or a large screen
as a base.  Any other ideas?

I hope you have a great week

  1. What a great idea. I love all the different pieces together...I especially like the pictures/picture frames. Pretty blog!

    1. Thanks, glad you like the blog and thanks for visiting!

  2. I think this is the most creative, beautiful tree I've ever seen! I'll definitely be putting things aside this year, for assembly next year. WOW, thanks so much for finding and sharing this item.

    1. Glad you like the post, I'm excited to make one too!

  3. That would be so much fun - and memory making too!

  4. this is terrific!
    not only is it exquisite to look at, but it is individual and totally unique. it takes up a lot less space, especially for apartment dwellers, it doesn't shed those nasty pine needles AND it saves trees, and land fills.

    it's all good.

  5. How about making the frame out of chicken wire and the wood up the middle for support.
