My stash of old bits of spindles, turned pieces and rusty scrap is all coming in handy for my one of a kind Rustic Christmas Angels. Nothing says 'primitive' more than a collection of the most Christmassy motifs of all; angels.
Browsing through offcuts from other projects, bits of rusty metal from my Junking in July road trip, and other scraps that never found a home and ended up in the 'project resource' pile gives me enough to start with.
Fortunately, I never throw anything out - even if it has bad memories, like the time I assumed that my instructions were clear.
Enough time has gone by that I can let it go, and use the damaged pieces to advantage in a project.
A while ago I messed with the method of making some faux tin ceiling tiles. What a good way to make the wings! And I also discovered that you can paint the aluminum so they're shabby white.
The combination of the pieces is now assembled, with only a few revisions.
I think it's one of those cases where the whole is more than the sum of the parts.
I can see a collection of rustic angels on the mantel, or a shelf. They will be something that I store the rest of the year and bring out close to the season to enjoy.
