I made a new jewellery holder out of a christmas tree top last month. The tree I got from friends in Canada who had given it to their goats to eat after other people had thrown it away after christmas.
The goats ate just about everything, needles, bark and all, so I didn't have to do anything to it but saw it to the right size and clip the twigs to the right length. Then I added a square wood footing, which I had painted red.
Ok, so I did have to bring it all the way from Canada to Germany which was a bit weird, carrying a tree top in your luggage  Grin

without all of my jewellery:

with everything on it:


I'd love your comments!

I love it! And I love goats, they're just so cool.

And last year we visited my parents on their ranch in Texas and brought home an Elk antler I found on the plane. We were quoted 1OO$ to mail it home to NY, so I wrapped it in tons of bubble wrap and checked it with the luggage, it was over 3  feet long and felt pretty conspicuously strange in the airport!  Grin

Haha, that's very good as well, mine wasn't even as big and I was really trying to figure out how I was going to explain to customs what I wanted with that tree if they decided to open my luggage (they didn't though so I didn't get to see their faces telling them that's my new jewellery holder).

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

This is very clever use of something that would have been considered just more garbage.  Good job.

And I understand about the elk antler.  Somebody gave me one and it's sitting in my foyer.  I want to make a cribbage board out of it, but haven't got there yet, so I always have to explain it to people who come around.

Great idea! I've seen these types of things for around 40 bucks online!

Considering it was already garbage when my friends picked it up to give it to their goats I guess you could call it double recycling  Grin
