So I found this walking home, clearly a mismatched or broken piece of a much larger tree. Tossing this just before the winter holiday is the right thing to do as many crafters buy supplies and try to find that unique decoration to outdo last years. I frequently work with found objects such as my glitter pine cone ornaments project and this piece I could not pass up. It's soft and angel white, the branches bend like wires and it's pretty damn festive, don't you think?
So what to do with it? I haven't had more than 20 minutes to think about yet but I have a feeling some of you might have some great ideas. Yes?
Nov 30th Update: I have disassembled the "branches" and below is what I have so far. Here are some of the ideas submitted. I call it "craftsourcing"
@purple_teacup: Angel wings
@Opheliac_7269: "pot it" than make some special silver sparkle cones, OR you could sprinkle glittler on it and use multicolor lights
@Inbiji: backing for an angel on the top of the tree, cut the wires & put them in your normal tree
@Admetcetera: shape the limbs into some form of twirling sculpture, like a snow drift or steam from hot cocoa spiraling upwards to a star
@Gwenddyn: in a hat!
All fantastic ideas! Anymore, now that you see more of what we can work with?
