Twelve Trees Of Christmas: Day 11

On the 11th day of Christmas the Tree Fairy gave to me, a precious little silverware tree. . .

This is a new tree to my tree family this year. I had some silverware pieces from my Maw's Maw's silverware she used for many years and I decided to build a tree just for them.


I made this tree all silver. I found the cutest little antique molds in Canton to put on the tree too. I even found a tree shape mold :) I have to say I love how this tree turned out. One week the idea was born in my head and a week later I had found the tree, brass bucket to paint silver, ribbon, picks, molds, mercury glass ornaments, and some old chandelier crystals, to hang with my 6 pieces of silverware! It's my favorite one this year :)

I think this is now my favorite as well!

Good idea...and I like where you put it...every room will definitely have its own tree soon.

Girlfriend, this tree is so cute and the story behind it absolutely MAKES the tree! Where did you find the mercury ornaments?

I am so inspired by all the little trees. I see that I do have room in my dining room, my kitchen, etc...

My goal is to make two new trees for next year!

I love this tree. Course I love silver on a tree...but the color...never put real silver. It is a great idea. Very pretty!
