Christmas Ornament From Old Lamp Piece

I have so many old lamp parts and I was trying to think of something to do with them. I just love old lamp parts. Everywhere I go... garage sales, thrift stores, flea markets... anywhere....... if I see a lamp piece I have to get it. I love the ornate ones especially. I have a big tub of them. This is one of the things I can up with to make out of them...... a Christmas ornament. It looks like a big snowflake to me.
You would have to have a pretty strong tree because it is pretty heavy. I added some jewelry pieces to it....... the one in the middle fit perfectly.

I put crystals on the back so it looks almost as nice as the front.

Hello and happy Saturday. I am one of Nancy's friends and thought I'd visit her visitors. Lovely ornaments, I am envious of your tub full of bits... Your boxes are wonderful!

Today is the last day of my night light GIVE AWAY - do stop by and enter, have a look around we are similar sorts I think.

Have a wonderful weekend ☺
