Vintage Junk Christmas Wreath

Today was a crafting day for me! 
I decided that "traditional" wasn't working for me,
so I decided to go with what I really love...


I used some thrifted upholstrey webbing to wrap a
straw wreath, and added a couple to red burlap roses and a grungy old funnel.

Two old folding carpenters rulers provided the starburst backer, and I tied some of my old bottles onto the wreath with twine.

I hung an old red enamelware pot lid in the center, and then tucked some greenery into the bottles and funnel.  I have no idea what the two "swiveling hooks with handles" are, that are dangling underneath, but I like 'em anyway!
Happy Holidays, Everyone!!
