Wire Brush Card Display

I found this old wire brush this week for $1.00.
I liked the long wire bristles.
I tied the bristles with a torn piece of red and white ticking fabric.
And then inserted a Christmas card.
 I placed it on an ironstone plate and added a couple of red ornaments. 
 A simple display in less than 5 minutes.

Have a great weekend!

Jane

  8. Just like Susan at homeroad said: we need to know where to get a wire brush and for the price you paid. And agreeing with everyone else, you do make everything beautiful!

  10. Who, other than you, would have thought of decorating an old wire brush for Christmas. I think I have one in the garage. I have to go look. Even if I do decorate it, it will not look half as good as yours.
