My trip to True Value yielded a roll of re bar wire and a box of plaster



I cut the wire in various lengths, straightend out one end and hooked the other end.  Then I filled a flower pot with the plaster, let the plaster set up, then inserted the wire



The pot I had on hand, and the pine cones came off the tree in my back yard.  I had planned to use moss ripped off a rock, but we have 3 or 4 inches of snow on the ground



And here it is, holding my FSL ornaments



Thanks for looking

I really like this idea... I may have to do something similar one day.  When I have rebar.  And plaster.  And time, for that matter.

Maquoketa!  Galena!  I'm from those parts!  Well, used to be, anyway.  I just moved out of Bettendorf, Iowa in June.  Well, kinda.. lived in Texas for 9 months, moved back for a month, then moved out of Bettendorf. 

Edited for spelling and clarification.

It really looks like a sculpture from the first pic.  I think it looks nice even w/o the decorations.

it does look like a piece of sculpture. i really like it. i collect vintage glass ornaments, and that wold be a great way to show off the best ones. i think the coloured glass would look really cool with the rebar.


and wouldn't that be a cool family tree? you could clip pictures to the ends of each piece. it would be hella cool!

Wow, thats really creative!  I love that idea.  I have a few "precious to me" ornaments that I can never seem to find once they're on the tree.  This might be a perfect solution to display them.  Great idea!

Festive--and it doesn't shed needles all over the floor.  By the way, did you make those ornaments?  (They're really pretty.)

I love it! and I agree - you could change it up seasonally to keep it around all year. Nice job on the ornaments too.

GloryB, I totally stole your idea for display racks for the origami ornaments I made for the craft fair at work. And now one of the two I made is atop our TV, looking like the Christmas Tree Of The Future, or possibly a way-too-decorative TV antenna. I used florists' stem wire, a wooden fence post top thing I found in the lumber dept (painted silver), and some gaffe tape to hold the wire on the bottom of the base.

(Since I was making cranes like crazy the night before, I actually had my partner paint the base and curl the ends of the wires. A+ to Jay.) Thanks for the idea -- I gave you props to everyone who complimented me on the display.
