  I made This Chrismas tree from vintage pins that were given to me. vintage pin tree

Each one of them is so pretty and unique.  They remind me of the person who gave it to me which makes it more special. pin tree

 It is about 15 inches square and each one is pinned to the red velvet and then I framed them in a deep frame.web-pin-tree-007

   What used to be jewelry is now a cherished Christmas decoration I bring out every year to hang on my wall.    It never fails to add a bit of cheer to the holiday season.

  11. This pin tree is fabulous. I have been wanting to make one, my sis has one her husbands grandmother made her. Her grandmother punched holes in the back of the frame and ran a string of lights–situating a bulb in back of each pin. At night it is breathtaking.
    Your pins are beautiful and how wonderful they all came from friends and family. Happy Rednesday Ann
