Trash to treasure: spindle ornaments!

We’re back with our amazing Blog Hop group, this month’s theme is handmade ornaments!

Easy wood spindle ornaments, every junker's dream! #diy #ornament

We love the 10th of the month where we can share some of our favorite friend’s talent!  With Christmas coming (HOORAY!!!), and trees sure to go up in just a couple of weeks, we were excited this month for the theme to be Handmade Ornaments. There are so many fun & creative ornaments to choose from– felt, glitter, vintage goodness, bright & cheery, traditional, child-oriented, and more! You’re sure to find one that fits your tree theme–or a new theme you want to start! We’d love for you to pin the collage below, check out my SPINDLE ORNAMENTS and then go see all of the other fabulous projects created by some of my blogger besties. handmade ornaments | simplykierste.com

  1. What a clever use for spindles! I like the dimension and texture it gives…not your typical “orb”. Cool!

  2. I love these – the colors are perfect (my Christmas scheme includes turquoise and red) and I love old spindles. What a great reuse of that chair. Heading over to visit some of the other ideas now… You’ve got me thinking about Upcycling for ornaments. Hmmm
