Safety Pin Christmas Tree
We were in a thrift store in Norfolk this past weekend, when I saw the biggest, most glittery tree. Sadly, it wasn’t for sale, but I did manage to snap a few pics. It was made entirely of safety pins and clear plastic beads. Remember making jewelry this way in the 70s? Well, unfortunately, I couldn’t deconstruct it on the spot, other than to see that there was a huge 70s lamp underneath it all. It appeared to be free-standing.
I’m going to try to make this. I’ll try first to find out if it is indeed free-standing. If not, it will either have to hang from the top of a lamp or have some sort of support to it. It’s possible that the wires which attach to the pins are actually graduated lampshades. In any event, as soon as I figure it out, I’ll post a tutorial. Then we will all have our gorgeous, glittery, safety pin trees!
