I’ve seen this idea on Pinterest, and decided since I had just hung this perfectly patinaed crib spring on my freshly painted dining room wall, and wanted to display my Shiny Brites everywhere but the tree, I’d give it a try myself. And yes, this is the second bedspring I’ve hung in my house in the last month! The green one, that I’m using as a Card Display, is in my back entry, Here.
It was actually quite time consuming, because these ornaments are so delicate. I lose one every year. Most of the ornaments are family acquisitions, so I feel extra bad when I break one. I was able to enjoy each one’s beauty as I arranged them.
I added the greenery around the top of the bedspring, so I could add lights for night-time beauty. I’ll have to try and do a night-time house tour, (maybe after Christmas day).
At the top of the tree I placed some of the star-like ornaments.
And at the bottom, I hot glued an ornament hanger inside the opening of the tree topper to create the trunk of the tree.
I decided my theme for this Christmas is “Comfort and Joy”. The “joy” part is definitely my “Christmas Map Display”, and my “Hem-Maker Tree and a Postal Sorter Christmas”. The “Comfort” areas, where I used lots of whites and texture in my kitchen and on our main tree can be found at my “Comfort Christmas House Tour”.
